Barcelona have a gentlemen's agreement in place for Paul Pogba

Published 1 Comments

Paul Pogba was a target for Chelsea throughout the summer, the Blues were reportedly planning a £70 million bid for the France international, however a move never materialised.

The Juventus midfielder has said he is in no rush to leave the Italian side, and that may be due to a reported gentlemen's agreement between Barcelona and the Old Lady.

According to Mundo Deportivo, an agreement was struck up between presidents Josep Maria Batomeu and Andrea Agnelli, over the future of the former Manchester United man.

Reportedly, an agreement was made before the Barcelona presidential elections, and during the General Assembly of the ACE, in Geneva on Monday and Tuesday, the agreement was revisited.

The Spanish publication reports, Juventus will hold out on the future of their star midfielder until next summer, but Barcelona must prepare themselves for a heavy outlay.

Chelsea will not give up without a fight, and with the new money from the Premier League television deal coming in to play next summer, will be able to offer a handsome fee to the Italians.

However, Mundo believe Barcelona have an advantage, due to the fact Pogba wants to play with Lionel Messi.

The 22-year-old has become one of the most sought after talents in world football during his time at Juventus, helping the club to a domestic double and the Champions League final last season.

Chelsea hope they can prize the France international away from Juventus with a handsome offer, and the idea of Pogba lining up in an already strong Blues team is an exciting prospect.

However Barcelona have major pulling power, due to their star players and continued success, and when they come calling it is hard for other teams to compete, regardless of money.
