Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has slammed Paul Pogba’s proposed £112 million move to Manchester United according to The Sun.
The French manager has called the move – which will be the worlds most expensive transfer – ‘complete madness.’
Pogba looks set to join United for £1112 million just four years after leaving the Red Devil’s for free after failing to break into the starting line-up.
“It’s complete madness when measured against real life, but we live in a world in which everything that happens is geared towards moving money around.” Wenger was quoted as saying by The Sun.
“It’s complete madness – but it seems that if you can afford to do it, you can justify it. Football has become a global competition and that is why clubs are chucking these kind of sums around.
“Does it make sense because the player can deliver a return on that investment? I don’t think anyone can make that call.”
The Sun also states that United are close to sealing the transfer of Pogba. The daily tabloid paper says that the Premier League giants are close to completing the deal in the upcoming days.
Pogba excited United fans earlier this week after uploading a picture to social media with the image highlighting the red, black and white colours.
The France international has provided 16 assists and found the back of the net on ten occasion in 49 appearances for Juventus last season.
