Manchester United have made a bid for Paul Pogba

Manchester United are obsessed with the idea of bringing an elite player to Old Trafford this summer.

This has been documented by Sunday Times journalist Duncan Castles, who has insisted that the Red Devils have already made a bid for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.

The France international has a history with United, of course - he left the club for Turin back in 2012 after failing to make a breakthrough into the first-team - but it now appears that hierarchy are ready to bring him back to the club.

According to Castles, who was writing for One World Sports, United have made a firm offer to bring him back to Manchester. 

But the Premier League club are not alone. The journalist claims that Ligue 1 outfit PSG have also made an offer to sign the 23-year-old ahead of the 2016/17 campaign. 

Pogba saga 

In all honesty, it looks increasingly likely that the saga involving Pogba will run on throughout the course of the summer, but it's not exactly surprising that some of the biggest clubs in Europe are chasing him at this stage. 

At Juventus, Pogba has gone from strength-to-strength and is already recognised as one of the leading midfielders in world football. 

But would he really consider a return to the Theatre of Dreams?

It would certainly represent a surprise if United managed to land him, but stranger things have happened. 

There's no doubt about it, United have lacked a star man in the middle of the park for far too long now and must seek a new addition this summer. 

United options 

They may well have the likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger, Michael Carrick and Morgan Schneiderlin at their disposal, but none of them are at Pogba's level. 

Wayne Rooney has been deployed in the centre of midfield recently, but he's by no means the finished article in that position. 

After seeing Pogba leave on a free transfer, it remains to be seen as to whether how much the United hierarchy would be willing to pay to secure his return. 

Fans of the club certainly won't be getting their hopes up, however, as there are many suitable clubs for Pogba to join. A lack of Champions League football at Old Trafford next season most definitely doesn't help the club's cause.
