Paul Pogba is Man Utd's 'primary transfer target' - report

Manchester United have reportedly made Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba one of their primary transfer targets.

Pogba left United on a free transfer in summer 2012, signing for Juve after rejecting a new contract with the Red Devils, and has impressed in Serie A since leaving England.

His performances have led to reports suggesting Arsenal are keen on signing him, while Chelsea have also been linked with the 20-year-old in recent weeks.

Earlier this year, the Daily Express reported that United boss David Moyes is keen on luring the France international back to Old Trafford at the end of the season, and according to Tuttomercatoweb, the youngster has now emerged as one of Moyes' top summer transfer targets.

Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have also been linked with Pogba, but according to the report in Italy, the two European giants will struggle to beat United in the race to sign the player should he look to leave Italy when the transfer window reopens.

Moyes is looking to strengthen his midfield this summer as part of a major spending spree, and has also been linked with Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho, who has admitted he could move to Manchester, and Bayern Munich's Toni Kroos.

United defender Patrice Evra recently welcomed the club's reported big-money attempts in trying to bring Pogba back to Manchester for a second spell.

"Pogba's talent on the pitch, his aggression, his presence, is very rare," the left-back said.

"He quickly earned the respect of players here like Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes."
