Man United transfers: Red Devils handed Paul Pogba boost
Massimiliano Allegri admits that Juventus would find it hard to reject a £75m bid for Paul Pogba
Manchester United have been handed a boost in their reported pursuit of Paul Pogba – after Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri admitted that a £75m bid would be difficult to turn down.
The 21-year-old midfielder has emerged as one of the brightest prospects in European football since moving to Serie A from the Red Devils back in 2012.
Pogba has been linked with a big-money move back to Old Trafford in recent months, with Chelsea also credited with an interest in the highly-rated France international.
Allegri feels that Pogba is only going to improve in the coming years and accepts that Juventus are unlikely to be able to turn down a big-money bid for the player.
“Of course, Pogba is only 21 and he’s got the quality to get even better,” Allegri is quoted as saying by Metro. “He is destined to become the best player in the world.
“To win games, you need to have strong players, otherwise there wouldn’t be players worth 100m euros (£75m) and others worth five.
“Everything has a value in life, unfortunately, and the outstanding players are hard to replace, but things always move on in football. For now, let’s just enjoy having him.”
Pogba has scored 22 times in 113 appearances since moving to Juventus and has won back-to-back Serie A titles.
Speaking last week, he insisted that he is paying no attention to the speculation about his future.
However, the player’s agent fuelled talk of a possible move back to Manchester United by claiming that his client has very fond memories of the Premier League club.
