Paul Pogba: Attracting criticism

Juventus have revealed the true cost of selling Paul Pogba to Manchester United, as well as the cut Mino Raiola will receive.

Pogba moved to United for a world record £89.3million in the summer, with the fee rising to £92.3m based on additional clauses.

Speaking to investors at a meeting, Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta has gone into more depth with regards to the deal.

He has explained that United must pay the Italian club a further fee if Pogba leaves Old Trafford for more than £44.5m in the future, and has also revealed the cut agent Mino Raiola stands to make.

“He came from United for a price of around €1.5m,” Marotta explained to shareholders.

“After four years with us he decided to return to England, he wanted to leave at all costs. Our asking price was €105m plus €5m in bonuses, which is payable if the player renews with United or leaves for a fee of more than €50m.

“That brings us to a capital gain in the budget of €95m. Mino Raiola and his company will be paid €27m. Taking fees into account, the total gain for Pogba was €72m.

“Even then we didn’t want to sell him, we wanted to put in French roots at Juventus.”
