Manchester City might have a clear edge in the Paul Pogba sweepstakes as the club is reportedly prepared to offer the Juventus defender a massive deal to return to the Premier League.
According to the Express, Man City is offering Pogba a whopping £250,000-a-week to play for the Citizens. Pogba spent one short season with Man United before signing with Juventus in Serie A and promptly became a star defender for the Italian club, scoring 20 goals in 89 appearances. In three straight seasons with Pogba on the team, Juventus has won the Serie A title each time.
The Express reported that it’s believed Man City consulted with Pogba’s agent with the intention of figuring out how much it would take to blow Pogba’s other suitors – Chelsea and Man United – out of the water. The Express also noted that the deal might even preclude Paris Saint-Germain from making a qualifying offer due to the French league’s “Financial Fair Play constraints.”
But most importantly, the deal would be nearly impossible for Chelsea, Man United or even Real Madrid or Barcelona to match.
