Chelsea and Manchester United are ready to pay up to £55million to sign Juventus star Paul Pogba at the end of the season, according to reports from the Express.
The France international left Man United for free back in the summer of 2012, citing his lack of regular first-team football as his motive to not extend his Old Trafford stay.
But the 22-year-old developed into one of the world’s best midfielders during his two-and-a-half years in Serie A, winning the Golden Boy accolade in 2013 before being awarded as the best Young Player in the FIFA 2014 World Cup.
And now Juve’s sporting director Guiseppe Moratta has revealed that clubs interested in Pogba are willing to spend in between £50million and £55million for his services, but the Italian champions fully intend on keeping their prized asset.
“There are many suitors of Pogba,” Marotta said.
“But we do not want to open negotiations and we want him to stay with us.
“There are clubs prepared to pay between €70m and €80m to sign him.”
