Mino Raiola, agent of Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has warned interested clubs that even a “€100m won’t be enough.”
Raiola was talking to Tuttosport newspaper in an exclusive chat covering a range of topics, including one of his most famous clients and also used the opportunity to advise Italian international Simone Zaza to stay and expects Alvaro Morata to make Real Madrid switch.
“Juve made the coup of the summer by keeping Pogba. Manchester United overpaid the most with €80m for Anthony Martial, so Monaco made a great deal there.
“What are the chances of Pogba staying next season? We don’t know yet. Paul will decide based on the offers on the table and what he feels inside. He was already in the same situation last summer.
“The player has grown and with him his price-tag, so I think €100m won’t be enough. It depends on (President Andrea) Agnelli.
“I can say for certain that the fact Paul decided to stay shows how much he has invested in Juve. The club invested in him too, by giving up on many millions in transfer fees.
“There is a strong bond between Pogba and Juve, while Paul is someone who thinks with his heart. He felt that was not the right moment to leave and in the end he was right. He remained and helped lift Juventus back up after initial difficulties this season, when the fans even jeered him unfairly. Many would’ve crumbled in his position.
“Pogba was not irritated by the jeers, but I was. In any case, they won’t affect the decisions in July. We are not children, we aren’t after revenge.
“There haven’t been many calls to my phone for Pogba because so few can afford him, like a limited edition Ferrari. Are Barcelona in pole position? No, the only favourites are Juve.”
