Bernabeu side chase Juventus star.
Real Madrid are readying a mammoth €100m (£78m) bid for Juventus youngster Paul Pogba according to talkSPORT.
Bernabeu president Florentino Perez seemingly sees the 21 year old French international as the latest ‘Galatico’ and is therefore willing to make a huge offer for his services.
It does seem likely that the former Man United man will leave Turin sooner rather than later, a point echoed by his agent Mino Raiola, who recently stated;
“He cannot stay for very much longer in Italy. It will depend on the Bianconeri,”
Pogba has been a massive success since moving to Italy, playing a key role in back to back Serie A title triumphs since his move from Old Trafford.
Securing such a fee for Pogba will represent a massive profit for Juventus, who paid only a compensatory fee for the player after he ran down his Man United contract.
One wonders where Carlo Ancelotti will squeeze Pogba into his midfield given the presence of Toni Kroos and Luka Modric as central options though clearly would be a selection ‘headache’ any manager would be happy to contend with.
