MANCHESTER CITY ARRIVALS…

Juventus midfield Paul Pogba is being linked with a move to another big club in Europe with the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Paris St-Germain all said to be in the hunt. However, with Manchester City also monitoring Pogba’s future, Real Madrid are being linked with a massive £78m bid for the 21-year-old. The Daily Star claims that Real will blow their competitors out of the water in order to land the highly-rated central midfielder, who is undoubtedly developing into one of the finest talents currently in the game.

Pogba spoke for himself following Juventus’ 4-0 victory over Verona on Sunday, and claimed that he is currently worth nothing as he still wants to prove himself.

"I am worth zero euros. I am worth nothing unless I work on the field in every single game,” said Pogba. "I need to do more because I want to be a champion just like Gianluigi Buffon, Andrea Pirlo and Giorgio Chiello. I want to be one of the best players in the world and to be able to reach this level, I need to play well. I focus on working on the pitch and giving all I've got for the squad."

 

HEADING FOR THE EXIT…

Influential midfielder Yaya Toure is again being linked with a move away from City with Chelsea, Paris St-Germain and fierce rivals Manchester United all reported to be in the hunt for his signature in the summer. The Daily Express claims that Toure could leave City if a bid of £20m comes in, and his latest quotes appear to leave room for a dramatic exit in the near future. Toure, who is currently on African Cup of Nations duty with the Ivory Coast, spoke about his future in an interview with CNN. He said: "I'm don't know. I'm at City at the moment."

SIGNED AND SEALED…

Wilfried Bony has revealed why he chose to leave Swansea in order to join Manchester City in a £28m deal, claiming that it was the allure of the Champions League and Manuel Pellegrini’s determination to see him take a step up in his career. In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports, Bony said that Pellegrini had asked Bony’s international team-mate Toure about his talents and whether he should make a move for him this month.

Bony said: “He told me ‘it’s the next step for you in your career and I think you will enjoy it. He said he’d been asking Yaya Toure about me, my character and everything, and that was also part of the reason for moving to Manchester City. And Yaya’s given me plenty of advice too.”
