Paul Pogba: Could have signed for Chelsea

Paul Pogba’s world-record transfer to Manchester United has reportedly hit the skids after Juventus refused to contribute to any agent fees.

According to The Sun, Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola is demanding a whopping £25million for brokering the nine-figure deal but, while Manchester United and Raiola have agreed for both clubs to pay 50% each, the Italian giants are refusing to pay a penny.

Raiola’s fee means that the deal for Pogba, who still has his heart set on a move to Real Madrid instead, will cost the Red Devils as much as £130million.

The report also claims that Juventus believe Raiola has purely constructed the move for his own personal gain and in order for a deal to be completed, Pogba may have to shell out of his own pocket to meet his own agent’s demands.

Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri is growing tired of the Pogba discussion, stating during their pre-season tour of Australia: “I am not going to talk about the transfer market news.”
