Bookies.com review possible summer destinations for Juventus star Paul Pogba
Arguably one of the best young midfielders in world football, Juventus lynchpin Paul Pogba is set to cause a transfer frenzy this summer, with the former Manchester United academy player linked to a host of top clubs around Europe.
The 22-year-old has quickly rose to prominence at Juve, and has been an integral part of their trophy-laden spell over the last couple of years. In 128 appearances for the Turin titans, he has scored 24 goals, contributing 27 assists, while establishing himself as one of the bet all-round midfielders in the world during that time.
As a result, Bookies.com review a number of destinations that Pogba could move to this summer, providing all of the latest odds.
Should Yaya Toure leave, the Premier League runners-up will be in the market for a world class midfielder and Pogba would fit the bill.
Likely to command a fee in the region of £50m, City could afford this, having reportedly got their finances straight following their fine for breaching Financial Fair Play regulations. He is 7/2 with Sky Bet to sign for Manuel Pellegrini’s side, and make the move back to Manchester.
Following the Champions League final, this is a move that could quickly materialise and odds could drop dramatically, so taking these odds now could prove to be a wise decision.
The French champions have Champions League ambitions and a move for Pogba would be a considerable upgrade on Blaise Matuidi in the central midfield role. Laurent Blanc’s side are 4/1 with Ladbrokes to sign the player, and could easily meet his fee and wage demands. It would also see Pogba move back to his native France.
Pairing Pogba up with Toni Kroos in midfield could form a dream partnership in midfield for Los Blancos, while at the same time, a move for the Frenchman would satisfy president, Florentino Perez’s craving for a new ‘Galactico’ signing.
The current Champions League holders are 4/1 with BetVictor to be the player’s club after the summer transfer window closes.
A definite outside bet, whether Pogba will go back to the club who released him remains to be seen, though the Red Devils are 15/1 with 888.com to re-sign him and there is no doubt that he would be a quality signing for Louis van Gaal’s side.
