French international hotly tipped to leave Turin this summer.
Barcelona presidential candidate Agusti Benedito claims he can secure the signing of much sought after Juventus star Paul Pogba according to Goal.com.

Benedito hopes to win the presidency during upcoming elections next month and clearly talking up his chances of signing French international Pogba does his cause no harm.
The businessman stated;
“I have spoken to Pogba,”
“First, I contacted Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli, then spoke directly with the player.
“They have proposed an annual salary of €12m (£8.6m) after tax and a transfer fee of €80m (£57.5m).”
Agusti Benedito registered his views with regards to the club’s sponsorship deal with Qatar Sports Investment, which has a year to run.
“They represent the finance of international jihadist terrorism,”
“We have one, two or even three alternatives which will pay more money than Qatar.” he added.
Pogba enjoyed a hugely successful campaign last term, playing a key role in his side’s capturing of a domestic double as well as helping to guide Juventus to a Champions League final.
A move to the Nou Camp this summer seems unlikely given Barcelona are currently serving a transfer ban that will run until January 2016.
