Arsenal target Pogba given £172m price tag

Published 6 Comments

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba will cost Arsenal a whopping £172million, the player's agent has stated.

Metro reports that despite the Gunners' interest in bringing Pogba from the Serie A to the Emirates, Juventus are determined to retain his services.

The 20-year-old Frenchman, who joined the Serie A giants after leaving Manchester United, has found his feet in Italy, and subsequently been eyed by Arsenal as a potential option to sure up their central midfield.

It is believed that Arsene Wenger made an enquiry into the availability of the French international, but was immediately rebuffed by the Italian champions, as they greatly value Pogba, and his potential for the future. 

The player himself has yet to to respond to Arsenal's interest, but it's likely he will remain in Italy for at least the next year, having enjoyed a resurgence in a career that looked to be going down hill when he opted to leave Old Trafford.

Pogba's agent, the enigmatic Mino Raiola, has blasted the Gunners' approach for this client, and stated that Pogba will cost an astronomical fee.

"How much is Paul worth? Without a doubt: twice as much as Bale," Raiola said.

"The price for Paul Pogba was made by the Real president Florentino Perez, when he decided to buy Bale for €100m.

"At this point Pogba is worth at least twice that amount. It’s not me who is making these prices up, it is Real Madrid.

"I said last year that Balotelli was the Mona Lisa of football and if that is the case then Pogba is a Salvador Dalì because of how valuable and important he is."
