Manchester United encouraged to bid for £75m world star

The Red Devils along with Chelsea have been handed a major boost in their pursuit of Paul Pogba after Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri admitted that a £75 million offer would be hard to reject.

The former United youth star attracted even more attention against Chievo on Sunday evening, putting in a match-winning performance that saw him score one and create another, and Allegri believes that he is only going to improve.

“Of course, Pogba is only 21 and he’s got the quality to get even better,” said Allegri. “He is destined to become the best player in the world.” he added.

‘To win games, you need to have strong players, otherwise there wouldn’t be players worth 100 million euros (£75 million) and others worth five.” he added.

The Juventus gaffer said that everything has a value in life, unfortunately, and the outstanding players are hard to replace, but things always move on in football.

Now the increasing impact of UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules means that only a handful of teams could afford Pogba’s services, but the Premier League duo are set to continue monitoring the situation ahead of a potential bidding war in the summer.
