Juventus star Paul Pogba is back on the Premier League's radar with four of the biggest teams interested in landing the Frenchman in the Summer.

Arsenal, Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United are all reportedly showing interest in the midfielder, and according to some reports, the latter may make a formal mega-bid of around £77 million to lure the powerhouse back to Old Trafford.

In demand

The 21-year-old, who left Manchester United back in 2012, has developed into one of Europe's biggest talents and with demand so high for his services Juve officials know their chances of keeping him are very slim, as their president admitted that last month.

When commenting on the futures of Pogba and Arturo Vidal, Andrea Agnelli admitted that due to the club's reputation, they will struggle to keep hold of such mega-talents especially when the big-boys come in for them.


As well as the Premier League giants, there are a few clubs around Europe that are also interested in Pogba, with Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona all showing interest.

However, it's Manchester United who are ready to launch the first formal move as they eye a bid of around £77m. Louis Van Gaal has been told by the club's board that he can spend another £150 million over the summer, and after being snubbed by both Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo his attentions have now turned to Pogba, who left the club on a free after falling out with Sir Alex Ferguson.

Fall out

Pogba was just a teenager at the time and chose to quit the club after being over-looked by the manager during a Capital One Cup game.

Despite the firm interest in him, Pogba penned a new deal at Juventus earlier this year, meaning he is committed to the club until at least 2019, but if an offer of around £77 million comes in over the summer, the Serie A champions may be forced to sell.
