Man United and Chelsea set for summer battle in chase of £70m star

Manchester United and Chelsea are set to go head to head next summer to sign £70million Juventus ace Paul Pogba, Express reports.

Pogba left the Red Devils for free in the summer of 2012 to develop into one of the best midfielders in the world, which saw him win the World Cup Best Young Player award as well as landing him in the 23-man shortlist for the Ballon D’or.

His performances has attracted attention from all over Europe, but the France international has been tipped to return to the Premier League amid interest from United and the Blues.

The 21-year-old is reportedly looking to establish himself outside the Serie A after winning the league twice since his arrival from Old Trafford.

The biggest obstacle to a move would be his price, with Juventus putting a £70million valuation on their star player.

But with United spending over £150million in the summer, the Red Devils will not be concerned by Juve’s hefty transfer fee.
