Juventus Reject Enormous Bid From Manchester United For Paul Pogba

Manchester United

Sky Sports have reported this morning that Juventus has rejected a £85 million bid for Paul Pogba from Manchester United.

The Turin giants turned down United’s offer on Tuesday, but have reportedly told club officials in Manchester that a bid in excess of £100 million would be accepted.

Juve have now accepted that Paul Pogba desires to leave and will not stand in his way should an appropriate offer arrive.

However, the cost of a potential transfer has already turned Zinedine Zidane and Real Madrid off a move, leaving United as the sole candidates for Pogba’s signature.

The offer was first presented at a meeting between Ed Woodward, Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola and Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta.

Pogba is currently on holiday away from Juve until August 6 after the Frenchman appeared for France in the European Championships this summer.

Jose Mourinho is widely known to want a fourth big-name signing after completing deals to sign Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Alongside, Pogba, United have been linked with James Rodriguez and Gabriel Jesus, but it is clear that they see Pogba as their number one target in the transfer market this summer.

Having left the Red Devils on a free transfer to Juventus in 2012, Pogba has become one of the world’s biggest talents, making 124 appearances and scoring 28 goals.

Pogba has previously spoken of how United are his ‘first family’ in football and did little to shrug off rumours of a move to England.

Manchester United are currently in China on the 2016/17 pre-season tour, where they will play Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City.
