Paul Pogba: Continues to be centre of Raiola mindgames

Juventus star Paul Pogba will demand a £300,000-a-week contract if Chelsea want to sign him, according to reports.  

According to the Daily Star, the 22-year-old will make the same demands to Manchester City, who are also looking to sign the France international this summer.

Pogba has established himself as one of the brightest young talents in European football, and his demands would make him the highest payed player in English football history.

Both Real Madrid and Barcelona are interested in signing the former Manchester United midfielder, but reports suggest Chelsea are confident of bringing Pogba to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have been heavily linked with Italy manager Antonio Conte as a replacement for Jose Mourinho, and the Italian could tempt Pogba towards the London club having managed him at Juventus.

Pogba has scored five goals in 24 appearances in Serie A this season and will be looking to guide Juventus to domestic success as well as a second consecutive Champions League final.

Juventus face Bayern Munich in the second leg of the last 16 tie next week after a 2-2 draw in the first leg at the Juventus Stadium, and having missed last season’s Champions League final loss to Barcelona through injury, Pogba will be aiming to take his side one step further.
