Pogba to get €50m release clause - reports

Next Story

Arsenal and Chelsea transfer target Paul Pogba is in line for a new Juventus contract - with a €50m release clause.

According to French newspaper Le 10 Sport, the France international will be offered a new long-term Juve deal, with the Italian giants willing to include a €50m escape clause.

Pogba has been heavily linked with a move to several top European clubs, including Real Madrid, Chelsea, Paris St Germain and Arsenal.

And these latest French reports claim Pogba and his agent Mino Raiola are currently engaged in contract talks with the Juve heirarchy that would extend the Frenchman's stay in Turin - but would contain a get-out clause should interest materialise.

Earlier this season Juventus centre-back Giorgio Chiellini and club president Andrea Agnelli admitted that the club may struggle to reject a mega-money offer for the midfielder.

Agnelli drew parallels with the Gareth Bale situation over the summer - Tottenham did not want to sell the Welshman but found it difficult to refuse a world record offer.

Should his release clause be set at €50m, the 20-year-old Pogba would be rated as one of the most valuable young players in world football.

The former-Manchester United academy star has been linked with a return to the Premier League in recent months - Arsenal reportedly had a bid knocked back over the summer, while Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is thought to be a fan.

But both Chelsea and Arsenal would have to fight off strong interest from elsewhere in Europe to land the talented international.
