£95.97m transfer Pogba agent meets Real madrid today


£95.97m transfer Pogba agent meets Real madrid today

While everyone was fawning over Dimitri Payet in the opening game of the 2016 European Championship, where the host nation France played Romania, I thought Paul Pogba was head and shoulders above any outfield payer on the pitch.

Perhaps Real Madrid thought so to as they are now reported as stepping up their attempts to prise him away from Juventus. The Italians are not keen to lose him, nor are they keen to lose Morata to the Spanish side. I would expect if he did move that Morata would stay in Italy, where he has expressed he wants to stay.

Arsenal have moved targets it seems and tried, unsuccessfully I believe, to sign Jamie Vardy, presumably because they know there is little chance of getting Morata, a player we would like to sign also.

According to a report by Sky Italia, Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, will fly to Madrid next week to meet with Real Madrid general manager Jose Angel Sanchez to negotiate a possible contract. Real are offering a base salary of £6.37-million (EUR8n - AUS$12.20m - US$9.03m) while Pogba wants £10.35-million (EUR13m - AUS$19.82 - US$14.67m). Talks will take place today on a five-year deal.

£6.37-million is about £122,000-a-week
£10.35-million is about £199,039-a-week

Pogba is under contract until 2019 at Juventus where he allegedly receives an annual £3.58-million (EUR4.5m - AUS 6.86m - US$5.08m) salary. Juventus want £95.57-million (EUR120m -  AUS$182.95m - US$135.44m) for the French international.

£3.58-million is about £68,846-a-week

There are suggestions that he has a deal with Barcelona, one negotiated last summer when the Spanish side had a transfer embargo. The though is that they would leave him in Italy for another year and then sign him this window. Certainly if Real Madrid and Barcelona are interested that blows any Manchester United or Chelsea interest right out the window, neither club has the same status.

Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid are both facing their own transfer embargos so need to sort out their immediate futures this transfer window.
