Notable Clubs across Europe - Arsenal, AC Milan and Inter Milan - have joined the race to sign Manchester United young gun Frenchman Paul Pogba who will be out of contract at the Old Trafford at the end of the season and will be free to negotiate with other clubs.

Pogba, reportedly, has refused to sign a new deal with the Red Devils ahead of the transfer, and both the Italian clubs and Arsenal would be able to sign him on a pre-contract in the New Year.

According to a Daily Mirror report, both Inter and AC Milan are interested in the midfielder and hopes to bring the player to Italy with a significant rise in wage and a chance to appear in the first team. United boss Sir Alex Ferguson also admitted that the player could leave Old Trafford if he was left on the bench.

Pogba, previously, was pointed out by the United manager as a reason as to why the club did not make much effort to sign Inter's Wesley Sneijder, according to a Crunchsport report.

Pogba arrived at United in Oct. 2009 and debuted with the club's under-18 team against Crewe Alexandra in a 2-1 defeat. He finished the 2009-10 under-18 campaign with seven goals in 19 starts.
