Transfer: Man United star Paul Pogba linked with shock move to Premier League rivals

While Paul Pogba's departure from Manchester United is a matter of time, the issue of his next destination remains unclear for now.

The inconsistent, but immensely, talented Frenchman is out of contract this summer and has decided to leave Old Trafford for free for the second time in his career. Initially, the consensus was the 2018 World Cup winner would move to PSG or possibly return to Juventus.

However, unexpected links to bitter rivals Manchester City have now emerged, with the Sun claiming that the defending Premier League champions are eyeing a move for the 29-year-old this summer.

According to the British tabloid, Guardiola's side are on the hunt for a new midfielder due to the inevitable departure of club legend Fernandinho, who is set to leave at the end of the season for more playing time in Brazil. As a result, the Cityzens have asked to be kept in the loop regarding Pogba's situation.

Despite the tragic passing away of his agent Mino Raiola, the player's transfer will be overseen by the same agency as Erling Haaland, who is tipped to move to the Etihad Stadium. As a result, things could go smoothly for Pep's side if they decide to go all in for Pogba.

It should be noted that Manchester City were interested in the midfielder back in 2016 but eventually dropped out due to the amount of money needed to land the Frenchman. However, whether Pogba is an ideal replacement for Fernandinho can be questioned, and since this is a transfer rumor, a pinch of salt is required.

One thing working against the Premier League leaders is that while foreign clubs can negotiate with Pogba, City will have to wait until July 1 when his contract official ends. As a result, PSG and Juventus could take the initiative in this move.
