Serious money needed to land Man City and Chelsea target

Premier League rivals Manchester City and Chelsea will have to smash both the British transfer record and their wage structures if they are to have any chance of secuing the signature of Juventus superstar Paul Pogba, according to the Sunday Mirror.

French side Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly emerged as the favourites to land to Pogba by submitting a £60 million bid to Juve.

However, personal terms have not yet been agreed and it is looking increasingly likely that a five-year, £320,000-a-week contract is what will be required to capture the 22 year-old France international.

Sources in France claim that Juventus and PSG have struck a deal, but that the Italian club are secretly holding out hope that it will in fact force Europe’s other superclubs to make a move, potentially driving Pogba’s price up to £75 million.

This means Premier League leaders Chelsea and last season’s champions Manchester City will have to break the £59.6 million British transfer record set by Manchester United last summer when they bought Real Madrid’s Angel Di Maria.
