Real Madrid plot sensational bid for Paul Pogba

Published 1 Comments

European champions Real Madrid are ready to blow rivals out of the water by offering Juventus a staggering £78 million for powerhouse midfielder Paul Pogba, reports the Daily Star.

The Frenchman is wanted by several of Europe's biggest clubs and despite recently signing a new deal it's reported that his time in Italy is coming to an end.

Pogba, who left Manchester United for nothing back in 2012, is now worth nearly £80m, with several clubs willing to meet Juve's asking price, which would make him one of the world's most expensive players.

High Interest

As well as Madrid, FC Barcelona are also interested from La Liga, and they are joined by French champions Paris Saint-Germain and English quartet Manchester City, United, Chelsea and Arsenal.

The seven clubs are all strongly linked with making a move for Pogba in the Summer, but it looks like Madrid are once again going to flex their financial power by launching a whopping bid for the 21-year-old.

Financial Power

Madrid have already broken the transfer record twice in previous years, firstly by spending £80m on Cristiano Ronaldo when bringing him in from Manchester United and then signing Gareth Bale from Tottenham Hotspur in a deal worth £85m.

Despite the financial fair play rules coming in, Madrid are prepared to keep spending and are reportedly set to make offers for Pogba and David de Gea over the summer.

Pogba, who has been open about his future in recent weeks, signed a new long-term deal earlier this season, keeping him tied to the club until 2019.

Move Likely

However, it's reported that he may be sold in the Summer with Juve officials aware that the league isn't prestigious enough to keep their stars if a big club comes in with an acceptable offer.

Fuel has been added to the fire by Pogba's agent Mino Raiola, who admitted that his client could be on the move in the near future.

He said: "He cannot stay for very much longer in Italy. It will depend on the Bianconeri (Juventus)."

A transfer battle is likely to take place for the French international, who has helped Juve win title upon title, and it's likely that he could be set for a big-money move at the end of the season.
