Cape Town - An issue regarding Paul Pogba's image rights is reportedly holding up his move back to the Premier League.
The Daily Star report that Manchester City's move for the French star is "on hold".
According to the English newspaper, Manchester City are battling to gain control of Pogba's image rights because a former representative has a stake in image rights of the Juventus' star.
City are willing to offer the Serie A champions £80 million, while the player is expected to earn £250 000-a-week.
However, there is another aspect which Premier League giants must overcome to bring the 22-year-old midfielder back to England.
"We will not sell our best players - our top assets - unless the players themselves ask us to let them leave." Juventus' CEO Giuseppe Marotta is quoted as saying.
City are eager to make a quick move for Pogba, with the player also part of the Barcelona re-election puzzle.
Presidential candidate Joan Laporta has highlighted Pogba's signing as part of his campaign to take over at the Camp Nou club.
