Manchester City are ready to pounce for Manchester United contract rebel Paul Pogba.

The Mirror says Pogba could be on his way to arch-rivals City after his representatives failed to agree a new deal to keep him at Old Trafford.

The 18-year-old is viewed as one of United's brightest prospects, but is said to have grown frustrated with his lack of first-team chances and is open to a move at the end of this season when his contract is up.

City have been keeping a close eye on the France Under-19 star's situation and are ready to offer Pogba a lucrative deal, although no formal discussions have taken place between the parties.
