Manchester City are keen to sign Paul Pogba from Juventus but the French star is eyeing to join either Real Madrid or Barcelona, according to Daily Star.
Paul Pogba has been targeted by European top clubs for the summer move, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are all targeting him. While Real Madrid are also reportedly keeping an eye on his situation.
Man City boss Manuel Pellegrini is set to make an offer around £70million for the Juventus star man but has also made a backup plan. Arsenal unsettled midfielder Jack Wilshere has been targeted by Pellegrini as a second option.
Pellegrini knows that Pogba wants to move to Spanish giant but he is still confident that a big money can change his mind.
While Daily Star believe that Man City will made a £40million bid for Jack Wilshere if they fail to land Pogba. Despite of Wilshere’s struggling season at Emirates last term the Citizens are preparing such big amount.
It is believed that Man City Chairman Khaldoon Al-Mubarak will double Wilshere’s wages. He is currently earning around £75,000-a-week.
The 23-year-old has still three years left on his current Arsenal contact but he has no plans to stay due to not getting enough time on the field.
