Premier League defending champions Manchester City are keen on signing Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba this summer.

Man City manager Pep Guardiola is weighing up a sensational move to sign French midfielder Pogba.

Pogba is poised to leave Manchester United at the end of the ongoing season as a free agent.

As per reports filed by the Guardian Sport, Guardiola wants to sign Pogba on a free transfer for the Cityzens in the summer.

The 29-year-old is reportedly open to staying in the Premier League and would not rule out joining City.

If the deal gets through, it will mirror Carlos Tevez’s infamous move from Old Trafford to the Etihad back in 2009.

Guardiola sees Pogba as the ideal replacement for versatile central midfielder Fernandinho who will leave the club once the season ends.

Transfer regulations state City cannot make a formal offer to the Man United star till the end of the season. However, they do have the financial strength to tempt Pogba with wages higher than what he currently receive at United.

The Frenchman remains Manchester United’s record signing but he has been unable to deliver consistently at Old Trafford.
