Arsenal and Manchester United fans will be gutted to hear the news of their prime summer transfer target Paul Pogba agreeing to join PSG next season in a massive £80 million deal which will see the Frenchman earn a salary of £140,000-a-week.
It had appeared that Pogba had ruled out a switch to his own country’s domestic league but Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola recently came out and said Ligue 1 is not too small for his client to make a move and any team interested in signing him will be given a hard look despite the league they are in.
Almost every major club in Europe is after pogba’s signature including his old club Manchester United along with Arsenal, Chelsea, Barcelona and Real Madrid. It seemed that in recent weeks Arsenal were the front runners for Pogba’s signature but now PSG have moved way ahead by offering him a £140,000-a-week salary.
Pogba’s current form would truly justify PSG’s intentons of breaking their club’s transfer record as Pogba has scored 6 goals this season and has created 36 chances. Pogba loves to take a shot at goal and he has had 44 shots on goal this season.
Pogba’s impact on the current Juventus side is equally massive in while defending as it is when going forward. Pogba has won 44 of his 89 tackles and 30 of his headed duels. Pogba has made 17 interceptions and is a massive boost for his team’s defence.
These stats truly justify Pogba’s price tag and with him certain to leave Juventus next season, he will be the most sought after player in Europe. With recent report from Express claiming that Paul Pogba is destined to join PSG next season, Arsenal and Manchester United do need to asses their midfield targets now with their primary target heading to Ligue 1.
