Man City, Chelsea to compete for Paul Pogba?


Paul Pogba news

Pogba likely to exit Juve next summer

Premier League giants Chelsea and Manchester City will reportedly fight it out with the likes of Barcelona and Bayern Munich in the race to land Juventus star Paul Pogba next summer.

The France international has been a top performer for Juventus ever since his Bosman move from Manchester United in 2012.

Pogba had been linked with a switch to the Premier League over the summer, but the Old Lady opted to keep hold of their star asset following the loss of Chilean star Arturo Vidal to Bayern Munich.

However, agent Mino Raiola insists that his client will be allowed to seek a new challenge next summer, provided any club matches Juve's asking price of £72m.

"The best La Liga clubs pounced on him, as well as some English Premier League sides, but both PSG and Bayern Munich cannot be ruled out in the race for him," he told RMC Sports.

"He is a very expensive player, as Juve expect to cash in €100m from his sale."

Pogba has scored 25 goals in 143 appearances for his side till date.
