Paris Saint-Germain may well have stolen a march in the transfer race for Juventus star Paul Pogba, after it was revealed that the Italian’s could be interested in a deal that would see Adrien Rabiot head the other way.
According to a report in French newspaper Le 10 Sport, which includes quotes from Sky Italia journalist Gianluca di Marzi, Juve have an eye on a deal for the young Rabiot, who is highly-rated in his native country. The 18-year-old has shown great maturity in the 21 appearances he’s made for PSG this year, and it’s thought that the powers that be in Turin see him as a useful asset for the future.
Of course this means that they may well be willing to play ball with the sale of their own burgeoning starlet Pogba, who has attracted plenty of attentions from European big guns in recent months. Both Manchester United and Chelsea have been linked with summer bids and his valuation is said to be close to an eye-watering €60million.
However it looks as though the Premier League pair may have to up their game if they wish to still be in contention for the 21-year-old’s signature come the summer. With PSG seemingly prepared to move heaven and earth to get their man, they’re firmly in the driving seat.
The report in hand infers that Juve could perhaps be interested in a player-plus-cash deal for their man, and the chances are that their French counterparts would be more than happy to oblige.
