Juventus star Paul Pogba could cost Premier League giants Chelsea and Manchester City a staggering £158m, according to reports.
The 22-year-old is one of Europe’s most sought-after players following his superb displays for the Turin-based club.
After being let go by Manchester United in 2012, Pogba is reportedly now wanted back in the Premier League by Chelsea and City but both clubs will have to break the British transfer record to sign the exciting talent, according to Daily Star.
Juventus hope to pull in a transfer fee of around £75m for the midfielder, however wage demands in excess of £320,000 a week would make him the highest paid player at either Stamford Bridge or the Etihad.
It is believed Ligue 1 powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain currently lead the chase for the technically-gifted star, with the report claiming the cashed-up club have already offered Juventus £60m in exchange for Pogba.
The current British transfer record is the £59.7m deal that saw Angel di Maria join Manchester United from Real Madrid last summer.
