TOP STORY: Man City switch sights to Thiago
All summer, Manchester City had been linked with eye-wateringly expensive transfer bids and wage packets to entice Juventus’ Paul Pogba to swap Serie A for life at Eastlands. When the window slammed shut and the Frenchman was still in Turin, “just wait until next summer,” the chorus rang out.
Some three weeks after transfer deadline day, though, and reports suggest that City have already turned their attentions elsewhere. According to Goal, Man City have resigned themselves to Pogba departing for Barcelona next summer, and are now working to line up Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara instead.
