Arsenal and Chelsea face an uphill battle to sign Serie A youngster
Juventus club director Giuseppe Marotta was quoted telling Sky Sport Italia: “Pogba is happy at Juventus and he has no intention of leaving. We will soon meet with the Frenchman’s agents to extend our agreement and, at the same time, give him a pay rise for the growth he has shown.”
The Frenchman currently earns £800,000-a-year in wages at the Turin side and his Premier League suitors Arsenal and Chelsea were hopeful of offering him the lure of a significantly better salary, to bring him to their respective dens. However, with Juventus ready to improve the wages of the highly rated midfielder, his suitors may now need to break the bank to land him, especially as the player may readily give in to requests of putting pen to paper on a contract extension.
A complete midfielder, Pogba would prove to be a massive asset for the London clubs, who will both be ready to welcome the former Manchester United man and create space for him in their respective teams. Moreover, with Jack Wilshere currently eliciting the interest of Barcelona and Chelsea’s new signing Marco van Ginkel out for a substantial amount of time due to injury, Pogba may turn out to be a morale boosting signing for either side.
