Chelsea, Manchester United And The Rest Of Europe’s Giants Left Frustrated As Midfielder Prepares To Sign Monster Deal

The dynamic midfielder will sign a long term deal to quash transfer speculation, and force his many suitors to look elsewhere.

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba will sign a massive new deal today, according to Italian transfer website TMW.

The Frenchman has been linked with moves to almost every big club in Europe over the last year including Chelsea and his former club Manchester United.

There have been reports that Pogba is planning to sign a new contract for several weeks, but TMW are reporting that the new deal will be signed “in the coming hours”.

The four year deal is speculated to be almost treble the 21-year-old’s wages from €1.5 to €4m.

Pogba was worried that Arturo Vidal would leave in the summer, but since Juves kept hold of his midfield partner he has agreed to commit to a long term deal.

La Bianocerni have stormed back to the top of the league and are on course to win their fourth straight Serie A title.

Their European struggles continues however, and they slumped to a loss against Olympiakos last night, despite a slew of chances in the second half.

A move to United never looked particularly likely, despite how much they need him as Pogba left Old Trafford in 2012 on a free after being consistently ignored for selection by Sir Alex Ferguson.

It was a game against Blackburn Rovers in 2011 which was the last straw for the France international according to Rio Ferdinand.

With the Red Devils missing several central midfielders, Ferguson played a midfield three of Nani, Antonio Valencia and Ji-Sung Park while Pogba watched from the bench.

Ferguson’s men lost 3-2 and the youngster made up his mind that he would have to move to secure first team football. Less than a year later, he was starting for Juve in the Champions League.
