Chelsea and Man City target to be granted £78m transfer

Juventus are ready to cash in on midfield star Paul Pogba, with The Daily Mail stating that the Italian giants will allow the Frenchman to leave for £78 million this summer.

The former Manchester United man is widely acknowledged as one of the most promising players in world football and has been an essential member of a Bianconeri squad that has won four consecutive Serie A titles.

Chelsea and Manchester City head the queue of teams that want to land the star and could well become embroiled in a bidding war this summer.

The report suggests that Juve will spend the proceeds of Pogba’s sale on Alex Witsel, Isco and Edinson Cavani.

City are expected to splash the cash upon Pep Guardiola’s arrival, with a replacement for Yaya Toure on the cards.

Chelsea will also be in the  market for new players after a disappointing season and signing Pogba would be a real statement of intent.
