Many Premier League and European giants have been in the hunt for French powerhouse Paul Pogba without much success till now. Big names from England like Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City have been in the chase for the midfield superstar, who is at the moment with Italian Champions Juventus. All three clubs have contacted the Italians who have till now, not accepted any bid for their 21 year old sensation, who has been in superb form offlate.
Now, recent reports suggest that The Citizens are planning to use their 25 year old striker Stevan Jovetic as part of a big money deal to bring Pogba to The Etihad. Manchester United and Chelsea have also been quite desperate as an intense top of the table race is on to sign him. It is believed that Jovetic’s past in Italy could prove a tempting prospect to Juventus and a deal may work out soon, once the two clubs start talking about a possible deal.
The Montenegro striker had previously made a name for himself after scoring a total of 35 goals in 115 appearances for Fiorentina and has recently shown similar glimpses of that promise for City over the last few months. Also, with the arrival of Wilfried Bony from Swansea City in the January transfer window would probably push Jovetic further down the pecking order and he would have to struggle a lot more, for first team action.
There is already a lot of competition for places in the City squad at the moment, due to a lot of highly rated players. The Champions of England at present have attacking options in the form of Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko, Jovetic and Bony, which makes their attack really powerful. Manuel Pellegrini may look to offload one of his strikers and Jovetic might be the one sacrificed to add more midfield quality, in the near future.
