Man Utd, Chelsea, Man City projects are all ‘fascinating’ to Paul Pogba


Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has claimed that the Frenchman is ‘fascinated’ by several elite European clubs including Premier League giants Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City.

The 23-year-old remains a player in demand this summer after another excellent season at the Turin club, helping Juventus clinch a Serie A and Coppa Italia double.

Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola claimed last week that Real Madrid have already opened transfer talks with the Italian giants to sign the dynamic midfielder but it remains no secret that only a world record transfer fee will enforce Juventus to sell their star playmaker this summer.

However, Raiola alerted a host of European clubs on Wednesday by stating that Pogba is tempted by several projects including a return to Manchester United, the club he left in 2012 after growing frustrated of lack of first team football.

Raiola said: “The future of Pogba? He has to grow. Where will he go? For now he’s at Juventus.

“I said he likes Zidane. Real Madrid is a fascinating project, as is Barcelona, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City, Chelsea and even Juve.

“He wants to be confronted with any reality. Would I listen to offers if Inter Milan and AC Milan were taken over by the Chinese?

“Why not? My interest is to represent my players as well as possible, so do not rule anything out.”

Despite such severe competition for his signature, Real Madrid remain favorites to sign the French International and look set to break the transfer record for the third time in seven years.
