Nagendra / 16 June 2015

Barcelona presidential candidate Agusti Benedito has revealed that he has spoken to Juventus midfieder Paul Pogba over a possible move to Camp Nou in January

Speaking in an interview, Agusti Benedito said: “I have spoken to Pogba. First I contacted Andrea Agnelli then spoke directly with the player. They have proposed an annual salary of €12million after tax and a transfer fee of €80million” 

The former Manchester United star has moved to Turin two years ago on a free transfer and then went on to become the world’s best player in his position with the Italian giants.


Meanwhile, Real Madrid’s legend Zinedine Zidane has praised the 22-year old and has confirmed the club’s interest in signing the French international.

He said, “I think he’s fantastic. What I like the most about him is that he has the lot. Many clubs are interested and Real Madrid are too. All talented players inevitably attract interest from all big clubs”.

“[He’s] a complete player who is also capable of scoring goals, because he likes going forward. In terms of his footballing attributes, he’s extraordinary”.

Paul Pogba is speculated to move away from Juventus this summer as he has drawn interest from European giants such as Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Manchester City, PSG, Chelsea, Barcelona and Real Madrid.
