Another day, another raft of claims on the future of Paul Pogba. Manchester United have been heavily linked in recent days, even more so than previous transfer windows, and the end of Euro 2016 could well speed things up.
After reportedly meeting with his agent Mino Raiola, things should, in theory, start happening. It’s no secret that Pogba is very happy at Juventus, but Spanish newspaper Marca say he wants the Manchester United move, with Real Madrid seen as an alternative.
That fits in with claims from French newspaper L’Equipe last week, which said Pogba had told teammates he fancied a return to Manchester United.
Marca say terms are agreed with the player at €13m a year, after tax, on a five year contract. However, there’s still no agreement with Juventus.
The Turin club want to keep Pogba for a further season as they try to win the Champions League, and they’re confident his price wouldn’t drop between now and next summer.
Interestingly, Marca say claims of a big agent fee for Mino Raiola are false, he won’t charge anything. They state that Raiola has 20% of the player’s registration rights, so if a deal is done for €120m then he’ll pocket €24m anyway.
