Manchester United are considering a move in re-signing their former midfielder Paul Pogba this summer, according to the Guardian.

The 22-year-old left Old Trafford and signed for Juventus in 2012 and since joining the Turin club, he has become one of the best midfielders in Europe. He has won three league titles in a row and has been part of the squad which reached this season's Champions League final after defeating Real Madrid.

The French international has been linked with a big money move in the summer, with United's league rivals Chelsea, along with Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Real Madrid all reportedly interested in securing Pogba's signature.

Louis van Gaal has made signing the midfielder a priority in the summer transfer window. Juventus value Pogba around €100m (£71.5m, $114.3m) and the Red Devils are willing to match the Italian outfit's asking price.

United have been alerted that Pogba has been made available in the summer and they are looking to bring him back to Old Trafford. The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager's preferred position is 4-3-3 and he could get straight into the starting line up next season.

Michael Carrick has been a key player in United's victories this season and in the absence of the England international, they have struggled on several occasions. Van Gaal wants to address that area and has now set his sights on Pogba to bolster his side's midfield.

Any failure to land Pogba will see United turn their attention on his Juventus teammate Arturo Vidal. The Chilean was heavily linked with a move to the 20-times English champions last summer.

However, the deal did not take shape and the Premier League club could make an approach for Vidal if they lose out on Pogba. The same report also claims that failing to land these two midfielders will then see United try to sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan.

The Bundesliga club have already confirmed the German international is not willing to renew his contract and has already agreed for a summer transfer, with just one year left on his contract.
