Manchester United and Chelsea could yet sign Paul Pogba in summer after Tuttosport claim that Juventus have rejected a £58 million offer from the La Liga giants Barcelona. As per the latest reports, Barcelona want to sign Pogba in the January 2016 transfer window once their transfer ban ends.
Paul Pogba has been a subject to interest from several club including his former team Manchester United along with the Premier League giants Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City as well as PSG and current European champion Real Madrid.
Such is Pogba’s worth in the market that, the first official bid for the player has been registered at £58 million by Barcelona which has been easily turned down by the Serie A giants who value the player in region of £70-80 million.
Since moving from Man United in 2012, Pogba has gone on to become one of the best players in the world at his position and it is not a surprise to see so many top clubs after his signature. Barcelona announced their interest in the player when Catalan club’s sporting director Ariedo Braida confirmed his interest in signing the French international.
Barcelona could have an edge in signing Pogba than all the other teams as Ariedo Braida is very good friends with the general director of Juventus, Giuseppe Marotta. Juventus have accepted that Pogba is set to leave the club in the summer but the Serie A giants are taking their time in deciding when to sell their prized asset and extracting a £70-80 million value from his sale.
