One of Europe's biggest clubs has reportedly made the first move by offering a contract to Manchester United star Paul Pogba.
The Frenchman is expected to part ways with the Red Devils at the end of this season as his deal with the Manchester club is set to expire in June and talks of a renewal have waned in recent times.
A number of top clubs are believed to be interested in the potential free agent, including FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.

According to Manchester Evening News, the latter have now stepped up their pursuit of the Frenchman by making him a contract offer.
The terms of that deal are understood to be less than the offer United made in their latest attempt to convince Pogba to stay at the club.
If the French side were to secure his signature, he would be their fifth free-agent signing in the past year – they signed Georginio Wijnaldum, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Sergio Ramos and Lionel Messi after their contracts with their previous clubs had expired.
The 29-year-old is said to be open to joining PSG, but is understood to prefer a move to his former team Juventus, while Real's interest in him has toned down since Zinedine Zidane's exit from the club.
It is further claimed by a source at United that many at the club believe the star is "gone", and that the Red Devils are already planning for his departure at the end of this season.
