The future of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been called into question for some time, with the Frenchman yet to publicly reveal what his next move will be.
Pogba is out of contract in the summer and 90min reports that he is continuing to evaluate
all of his options before deciding whether or not to pen fresh terms at Old Trafford.
Nevertheless, that hasn’t stopped the rumour mill from going into overdrive over the past few months, as potential suitors jostle for position and weigh up what kind of financial package they can put to the World Cup winner.
Former club Juventus, who have already lured Pogba away from United for free once, are one interested party, and a new report from Gazzetta dello Sport suggests they are willing to spend big in order to get their man.
It’s claimed that Juve are willing to offer Pogba the same base salary as Dusan Vlahovic, their marquee January signing from Fiorentina who is thought to be pocketing around €7.5m per year after tax – though his wages could rise as high as €10m when add-ons are taken into account. Gazzetta’s report also claims that in addition I Bianconeri, who alongside Real Madrid and Barcelona are desperate to revive the idea of a European Super League, have requested that Pogba’s entourage keep them in the loop about competing offers – one of which may come from Real.
Pogba is open to returning to Turin after a trophy-laden four-year spell helped him become one of the best midfielders in the world, but the possibility of moving to Madrid also appeals.
However, it seems as though Kylian Mbappe is the priority signing for Real Madrid, and his likely departure to the Santiago Bernabeu could free up the wages required to take Pogba to back to his homeland with PSG.
