Inter Milan could reportedly appear as frontrunners in the attempt to sign Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, with the midfielder likely leaving Old Trafford this summer.
Pogba has struggled to settle since returning from Juventus worth £ 89 million in 2016 and has been linked to moves to Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and a second spell at Allianz Stadium.
But it’s Inter who thinks they can all steal a march Gazzetta dello Sport.

United would like to recoup much of the fee they paid for the World Cup winner in France, and it appears that Inter is best placed to meet their financial requirements.
While the Italian daily claims that a Juve move for the midfielder could involve swap deals with Miralem Pjanic, Federico Bernardeschi and Douglas Costa, Inter United may be tempted with a single financial offer.
The Nerazzurri hope they can raise over £ 90 million this summer if, for example, they can transfer Mauro Icardi and Ivan Perisic to PSG and Bayern Munich, respectively.
Both players are on loan and Inter would count on their European rivals to continue buying options.

United have not yet taken the option to extend Pogba’s contract beyond 2021 and even though he is counting for his injury injuries season, he doesn’t seem to be in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans.
The 27-year-old has only played eight times this season and not since Boxing Day after ankle issues that devastated his campaign.
A return to Italy seems most likely for Pogba, who is still in touch with former Juve teammates and would like to return to the club that would help him become a world star.
But it was Antonio Conte who led him during his time in Turin and the temptation to play under the Italian again at Inter is also a very attractive option.
