Cape Town - There remains strong interest in former Manchester United player, Paul Pogba, despite the French star penning a new Juventus deal.

Manchester City and Arsenal are among several English Premiership clubs still pondering with a bid for Paul Pogba according to the Daily Express.

The 21-year-old midfielder, who was named as the 2014 Soccer World Cup's Best Young Player, signed a contract extension with Juventus in October but that has not put off a long-list of potential suitors.

A bid from Manchester City is most likely with the continuous story linking Yaya Toure with a move to French Ligue 1 giants, PSG.

Manchester City's transfer record, £38 million to sign Sergio Aguero from Atletico Madrid, would in all likelihood be broken if they indeed moved for Pogba.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is believed to be a keen follower of Pogba and would join in any potential bidding war for the hugely talented France international.

Manchester United and Chelsea cannot be ruled out the race with both clubs acutely aware of the attributes of Pogba.

Pogba left Manchester United three seasons ago and has already played over 100 games for Juventus.

This season, the Frenchman has netted three goals in ten league outings as Juventus top the Serie A.
