According to Sport, the Spaniard has told City's board he wants his first signing to be Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.

The Frenchman has been chased by Chelsea and Manchester United in recent times, with the Blues reportedly having a huge bid for the midfielder turned down.

Despite the interest in Pogba, Juventus have remained adamant they will not be selling their star. However, it has been suggested a major bid could persuade the Italian giants to enter into negotiations.

Juve club director Giuseppe Marotta does not think so, though. 

"Pogba is a Juventus player and still has an ongoing contract with us," he said, according to the Daily Star

"Plus, he has also told us about his intention to stay with us. 

"All the conditions are there for him to continue with Juventus for the upcoming years.

"The Juventus jersey is something you honour right until the end."

City midfielder Yaya Toure is expected to leave at the end of the season, while there are a few others who could be on their way out of the Manchester club.
