One of the candidates standing for Barcelona president has claimed he can buy Paul Pogba, despite the La Liga club being unable to buy anyone until January.
Agusti Benedito believes he can take the highly rated young Frenchman to the Camp Nou, and has claimed to have spoken to the Juventus midfielder in regard to a potential transfer.
Barcelona beat Pogba’s Juventus 3-1 in the Champions League final in Berlin at the beginning of June and many believe that that is the former-Manchester United youth player’s final game for the Italian champions.
Benedito is quoted on Catalan TV channel 8 al dia as saying:
“I have spoken to Pogba. “First, I contacted Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli, then spoke directly with the player.
“They have proposed an annual salary of €12m after tax and a transfer fee of €80m.”
Pogba has been linked with just about every big club in Europe, including Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United. the Barcelona presidential elections will take place on the 18th July.
