The long-term future of Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has been the subject of debate for some time now. 

The France international is recognised as one of the leading young midfielders in world football, so it's not entirely surprising that he has attracted a great deal of interest. 

Pogba, 22, is quickly establishing himself as a global superstar, but who is in the running to take him away from Juventus this summer?

Well, Spanish football expert Guillem Balague appears to have the answer. In a Q&A for Sky Sports, Balague has insisted that as many as four clubs are interested in the dynamic star's services. 

According to Balague, the Spanish duo of Barcelona and Real Madrid are battling Manchester United and Manchester City for the technically-gifted star. 

Four clubs interested 

Balague wrote: "Interestingly, Pogba seems to be vying for a move to Barcelona but they don't have the money that Manchester City, United or Real Madrid are prepared to put on the table. 

"For that reason it's difficult to say anything definitive, except for the fact those four clubs are interested."

Let's take a look at the four clubs interested in Pogba: 


Barcelona are already an irresistible force, but the addition of Pogba would improve them even further in their pursuit of dominating world football. 

With Xavi no longer plying his trade at the Camp Nou and Andres Iniesta approaching the latter stages of his career, perhaps Pogba would fit in nicely under the guidance of Luis Enrique. 

Real Madrid 

Pogba certainly fits the bill of a 'Galactico' and surely playing under the guidance of compatriot Zinedine Zidane would interest him. 

Throughout his playing career, Zidane was recognised as the best midfielder in world football, so it's clear for all to see that Pogba would learn so much from the Real Madrid head coach. 

Manchester United 

United fans are still getting over the fact that Pogba departed the club on a free transfer after failing to force his way into the first team. 

But if United manage to secure his services - they may well have to spend big - all will be forgiven. United are clearly in need of improvement and Pogba would represent a huge coup for the club at this stage. 

Manchester City 

With Pep Guardiola set to take over at Manchester City, perhaps a move to the Etihad would be an intriguing one for Pogba.

It's far from certain as to whether Yaya Toure will stay on in Manchester past the end of this season, so perhaps Pogba could act as his replacement.
