Barcelona are willing to splash €70 million in order to land Paul Pogba from Juventus according to reports in Spain.

The French international has emerged as one of the most coveted midfielders in Europe since joining Juventus and is likely to be the subject of a major transfer battle in the summer. 


Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea are the Premier League clubs who have been linked with a move for the 22-year-old, while there's plenty of interest from Europe too.

Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are amongst his suitors, while it seems as though Barcelona are gearing up to make a big play for him. According to newspaper Sport, the Catalan club will make an offer in the region of €70 million in order to secure the former Manchester United ace's signature - however they will have to wait until their transfer ban is complete.


A move would involve Pogba being loaned back to Juventus until their ban is complete in the 2016/17 season, although whether the midfielder would be interested in putting his future on hold like that remains to be seen.

Sport add that a switch to France is out of the question while his agent Mino Raiola has publicly criticised Real Madrid in the past, so it seems to be a straight shootout between Barcelona and the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United.


The amount or reports coming from Spain about Barcelona's interest in Pogba have started to increase dramatically, which should be a serious worry for Manchester United. Make no mistake, they need him more than any other team but he will no doubt have his head turned by Barcelona.

The big problem is of course their transfer ban, and Manchester United have the financial clout to push them all the way. However when push comes to shove Pogba is likely to pick silverware at Barcelona than battling for fourth with the Red Devils.

Should Pogba wait in order to join Barcelona?
