Manchester United & Real Madrid both look like they are going to miss out on the signing of Juventus starlet Paul Pogba, as Paris Saint-Germain are ready to part ways with €70million in order to prise him away from Turin.
Only last week did reports emerge suggesting the mega-rich French champions would be willing to pay the colossal sum for Pogba, but now the speculation seems to have taken on a new significance as Spanish newspaper Sport claims that PSG are keen to price out their competitors. It’s believed that the Parisian outfit is confident that if they put down the aforementioned €70million then Madrid boss Florentino Perez will walk away from the deal, effectively leaving PSG as sole contenders.
United have also been linked in connection with their former youngster, but the likelihood of them missing out on next season’s Champions League, as well as rumours explicitly detailing that the Frenchman doesn’t want an Old Trafford return, look set to conspire against any potential move in that particular direction.
French newspaper Le 10 Sport suggests that Juve are keen to retain the services of Pogba, but may well be convinced to sell if the money is high enough. If that’s the case then PSG find themselves in the driving seat heading into the summer transfer window.
