Chelsea and Manchester United transfer target seeking LEGAL action to force £56m move

Posted by

Juventus star Paul Pogba is seeking legal action to sort an image rights issue which is hampering his chances of a move, reports the Daily Express.

Chelsea, Manchester United, and Manchester City have been linked with a move for the 22-year-old. The Bianconeri are thought to want around £56 million for the France international, but this problem could make that rise for the buying club. This will be embarrassing for the Red Devils, who let him go to Turin on a free transfer in 2012.

The midfielder’s image rights are currently held by Oualidia Tanazefti, who is an old associate. They are are with a company based in Luxembourg, and it will cost £10.5 million for whoever buys Pogba to settle the issue on top of the fee paid to the Old Lady. However, this may be lessened if the player takes legal action over the rights.
