Chelsea and Manchester United will have to pay upwards of £80 million to land Paul Pogba this summer, according to his agent Mino Raiola.
The France international has a host of top European clubs chasing after him thanks to his incredible form at Juventus, but any suitors are going to have to break records to get their man, according to quotes from ESPN.
United and Chelsea are joined by the likes of Real Madrid and Manchester City, both of whom have the funds to make massive offers for the young midfielder, and as the summer window looms and the subject of Pogba’s future continues to be a hot topic, it’s gearing up to be one of the most hotly-contested transfer sagas of recent times.
Above all else it’s been made clear that Juve won’t sell unless they absolutely have to, and according to Pogba’s chief representative it will take more than what Real paid for Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009 to see a transfer organised successfully.
Indeed thanks to his development in Turin Pogba is now considered one of the most gifted rising stars on the planet. Sir Alex Ferguson has long been made to rue his decision to allow the 21-year-old to leave Old Trafford for free, though Red Devils fans will be hoping Louis van Gaal is the man to bring him back.
