Manchester United flop Paul Pogba would prefer to move abroad rather than join Manchester City, according to reports.
Reports had emerged last week that Pep Guardiola was considering a shock move for the French World Cup winner to bolster his midfield, with Fernandinho set to leave this summer. But, according to The Athletic, Pogba has snubbed a potential switch to the Etihad in favour of a move to the continent.
His future now seems to be with one of Europe's elite, with ESPN claiming that he has prioritised a move to either former club Juventus or Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain.
PSG are said to be leading in the race, in part due to their greater finances. The French giants are one of the wealthiest clubs in the world and can offer Pogba considerably more than Juventus.
Real Madrid also remain interested in the French international, although a move could depend on what happens with their pursuit of PSG forward Kylian Mbappe.

Pogba's contract at United expires at the end of next month, but ESPN claim that the 29-year-old will not be rushed into a decision about his future.
Regardless of where he ends up, it appears likely that Pogba has played his final game for the Red Devils. The midfield star is facing a race against time to be fit for United's final game of the Premier League season against Crystal Palace on May 22 as he continues to recover from a muscle injury sustained against Liverpool last month.
The 2018 World Cup winner rejoined United for a then-world record £89million in 2016, but he has struggled to show the same form at Old Trafford that made him one of the world's most coveted midfielders with Juventus.
He has made 226 appearances for the Red Devils since the switch, scoring 39 goals and contributing 51 assists in all competitions. It appears unlikely he will add to that tally before he departs Old Trafford.
