Transfer balls: Paul Pogba ‘accepts’ PSG offer, wants Chelsea and tempts Manchester United
Transfer Balls: it’s going to be busy summer of chatter for Juventus star Paul Pogba, 22.
The Mirror says Manchester City and Manchester United will have to create a new British transfer record if they want to sign Pogba. This isn’t simply Pogba’s agent talking up his client; it’s a a fact because the Mirror says Paris St-Germain have offered £60m for the France international. And that’s more than the £59.7m Manchester United paid for Angel di Maria.
And then there are the wages. The Mirror says PSG have offered Pogba £320,000-a-week.
The Mirror then says that Manchester United don’t want Pogba. They’re after Gareth Bale and “ready to tempt Real Madrid with a £100m offer”.
So much for the facts, none of which is supported by a single word from any of the clubs involved.
And PSG won’t get Pogba for £60m because the Star says Juventus want £75m for their player. But then in the same article the Star says Juventus have “accepted” PSG’s offer of £60m.
But the Daily Mail says Pogba is Barcelona’s big target.
Oh, and the Star also says Pogba wants to play for Chelsea.
Such are the facts…
