Manchester United starlet Paul Pogba’s future remains in the balance with City being the latest club to be linked with the young midfield maestro.
Having previously been linked with Arsenal and German side Hamburg, the Daily Mail are linking him with a move to ‘noisy neighbours’ City.
The 18-year-old’s contract is soon running out and has yet to sign a new contract with the Red Devils. If he were to move to Manchester United’s cross-town rivals, Manchester City, he would become the fourth player since 1999 to make the switch, following Terry Cooke, Carlos Tevez and Owen Hargreaves.
However United boss Sir Alex Ferguson remains upbeat about the Frenchman’s future and believes he will agree a new deal. He has shown glimpses of brilliance in his cameo appearances for United, and has been described by his club as a “powerful, skillful, and creative” player who has “an eye for goal and a penchant for the spectacular”.
After being accused by former club Le Havre of tapping up the wonderkid, Pogba has found it immensely difficult to break into United’s first team. It is believed that the young Frenchman is growing more frustrated at the lack of playing time and is eager to know what the future holds for him at United before he can contemplate signing a new deal.
Would a move to City be a wise decision? Do City even need him?
