Juventus star Midfielder Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has dispel rumours that his client have already agreed a deal in principle to join Barcelona in January.
The agent made this claim while speaking to reporters after Juventus match with Torino sparking wave in the transfer window as various Clubs would be in the bid for the maverick midfielder. While also inferring that the player might remain the Turin Club.
He said: “We said no to several teams, and continue to move forward, judging the moment. We can’t say that Pogba will leave after this season; he could stay another year the Club. We don’t have a pre-agreement with anyone”.
Paul Pogba was subject to transfer speculations to Chelsea last summer and a renewed bid could be on the cards for the player as Chelsea would seek to reinforce quality players to their squad.
Chelsea would be coughing out a reported £75 million which could likely rise to a world record £100 million if they are to prize the midfielder away from Juventus.
Raiola was quoted “When the right project comes along at the right time for everyone then we could leave, but an agreement has to be reached with Juventus first. His Value? You’d have to ask Juventus, they’ve always said that they won’t even talk about it for than £71 million. Maybe this year they’d ask for more, but it depends on the transfer market, which has been influenced by Financial Fair Play in recent years”
It is understood that Roman Abramovich is more than willing to get his man this time around after a low transfer activity at the Club last summer.
