Paul Pogba wanted by six clubs for summer transfer

Published Add your comment

No less than six clubs are interested in signing Paul Pogba in the summer, including Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City.

Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Barcelona are also in the hunt according to Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo.


Pogba has emerged as one of the most highly-rated youngsters in Europe at Juventus having joined from Manchester United on a free transfer in 2012. He recently penned a new long-term contract in Turin but that has done little to quell the speculation over his future.

Mino Raiola, Pogba's agent, recently admitted that his client could be on the move in the next year and could cost €100 million now El Mundo Deportivo say that a host of top clubs across Europe will be vying for his services.


Manchester United have been heavily linked with a swoop for their former player but will likely have to fork out a fee in excess £50 million. It seems as though Barcelona will be their fiercest competitors, with El Mundo Deportivo claiming that all the powers that be at the Nou Camp are in agreement that he should be targeted.

A major issue for the Catalan club is their transfer ban which means they'd be unable to register Pogba until 2016. The paper adds that Pogba has fond memories of his time at Manchester United which could be a factor, while the new £5 billion Premier League deal gives the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City a sizeable advantage over their European rivals.

Real Madrid are able to call upon the lure of Zinedine Zidane to try and attract the 21-year-old, while a return to France with Paris Saint-Germain may appeal.


There's no doubt that with Marco Reus off of the market, the race to sign Paul Pogba will be the biggest of the summer.

The French midfielder is pretty much the complete package and would be a superb addition for any team, although it would certainly appear that Manchester United or Arsenal need him the most.
