Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City are set to go head on for the signature of £75m rated Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba in the summer, according to the Daily Mirror.

The French midfielder has grown into one of the best young players in the world since transferring from Old Trafford and has been touted to be the first midfielder to breach the £70m mark.

Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are believed to be interested and will do everything in their power to prise the 21-year-old away from Turin.

The midfielder has made 22 appearances this season for the club, scoring six goals and assisting three in all competitions but his influence stretches far beyond scoring goals, with the player heralded for delivering a complete performance on the pitch.

His ability to win the ball back in crucial positions and break up opponents' play, while undertaking a box-to-box role from the base of midfield is among the best in the world, for which the top clubs are willing to pay the bucks.

It is particularly disconcerting for United, who had Pogba leave in 2012 under Sir Alex Ferguson, after the Frenchman refused to extend his contract with the Red Devils, owing to a lack of assurances on first team action.

His agent, Mino Raiola, insists that Pogba is currently happy at the club but will make a move when he realises that he is too good for the league he currently plays in.

"Paul is happy at Juventus but later this year or next year we will see what opportunities have been created. When the league cannot satisfy such a player then it is time to go," Raiola said.

Raiola also stated that moving to United will not be a problem, as he does not hold any grudges against his previous club.

Louis van Gaal has already spent £150m in the summer and will dig deep into his transfer budget come the next transfer window should they manage qualification into the Champions League next season.
