Paul Pogba to Juventus: Italian champions prepare lucrative offer to outbid Real Madrid for Manchester United’s star midfielder.
With Maurizio Sarri at the helm, Juventus are looking forward to building a team capable of winning the Champions league. To achieve that dream, the Italian champions have identified Paul Pogba as an important summer target. However, bringing Pogba back to Italy is easier said than done.
Manchester United are adamant that they do not want to sell Pogba. They have reportedly offered the midfielder a 500k per week contract to keep him at Old Trafford. They have also valued him at an astronomical €150 million. This ensures that only a handful of clubs can realistically place an offer for him. Unfortunately for both United and Juventus, the other club in the race is one that Pogba prefers the most.
With mounting pressure from Real Madrid, Juventus have reportedly prepared an official offer for Manchester United. According to Italian reporter, Romeo Agresti, the Turin based club are preparing an offer in the region of €130 million to €140 million to bring Paul Pogba to Juventus.

This offer is 40 to 50 million more than what Real Madrid have currently offered to United and is closer to their expectations. However, the Madrid side is reportedly willing to offer either Bale or Isco as part of their Pogba deal. Will Manchester United hold on to their wantaway star? or will they take up offers from either of these European giants? The only way to find out is to wait and watch as the drama unfolds.
