Manchester Utd and Paul Pogba are most likely to part ways this summer window. Real Madrid, Juventus, and Inter Milan are among the top contenders interested in Paul Pogba.
Pogba is a very valuable player with his versatile play style. The Frenchman has the knack to make astonishing through balls. And also has a special ability in providing curvy high balls. Pogba has the ability to connect with the frontline and help them in the attack while holding the midfield together. Paul has been a really valuable member of the United squad. But they might think to part ways coming summer. United expects to receive some huge deals for the Frenchman.
On Monday Gazzetta Dello Sport had a talk with four experts regarding the transfers. Gazzetta made it clear that Pogba’s market value has dropped due to the pandemic. But still, United’s Ed Woodward is not looking to lower the price tag too low. Woodward wants to drive a hard bargain and assumptions predict a 70 million euros deal.
Woodward is keen on having a healthy financial environment at United. And will surely set the bar as high as possible. But the deal doesn’t seem too feasible. All the clubs are facing revenue fall with games behind closed doors and leagues canceling. So even if there are interested parties a 70 million deal is a bit too much to ask for.
Besides the 70 million transfer fee, a club will have to spend 220 million for the Frenchman in total. Pogba presently earns 30 million per year before tax as wages. The Frenchman won’t be willing for anything less. Also, Pogba won’t be signing for a contract for less than 5 years. And so a club would have to pay a gross outlay of 150million for the next five years. Making it a total of 220 million, this big amount is not happening in the current situation.
