Chelsea and Manchester City have reportedly been handed a boost in their pursuit of Juventus star Paul Pogba, after the midfielder's representatives rejected Paris Saint-Germain's initial offer.

According to the Daily Mail, apart from the two English clubs, representations have arrived from Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona, who have admitted their interest in signing the player in the past.

Earlier in the season, reports had suggested that the Italian club had agreed a fee with the Ligue 1 champions for the transfer of the French midfielder and it was thought to be around the £58m mark. But personal terms were not agreed and the report claims that his agent Mino Raiola has rejected their opening offer of £210,000-a-week.

Juventus are resigned to losing their star and are aware of the huge fee that will come their way, which can go a long way in helping Juventus rebuild their team ahead of next season.

The Italians were recently crowned Serie A champions for the fourth campaign in a row and despite their reluctance at selling one of their best players, they have supposedly asked the former Manchester United player's agent to talk to interested clubs as long as they match the club's valuation of the player.

Chelsea have been heavily linked with a move for Pogba along with the rest of the Premier League big guns City and United, and with his representatives looking for a huge wage packet, there will only be a handful of clubs who can afford to buy him.

Juventus have been insistent that they do not want to sell, with the club's president Giuseppe Marotta also ruling out reports which suggested that the player had put in a transfer request to force a move in the summer.
