Raiola: Pogba Could Join Barca, If Laporta Wins

share on:

Mino Raiola has said that Juventus midfielder and France international, Paul Pogba has a higher probability of joining Barcelona if Joan Laporta wins the presidential election.

Laporta was president from 2003 to 2010 and is one of the favourites alongside Josep Maria Bartomeu to win the 2015 elections.

Barca already saw a €80 million bid rejected by the Italian champions and Laporta says if he wins, that will be an added advantage in the signing of the 22-year-old midfielder.

And the player’s agent has backed the 52-year-old’s claims, adding that Barca’s initial attempts to strike a deal with the Turin club through directors Ariedo Braida and Alberto Soler was “silly” and a mere “political” ploy.

“Pogba has a big chance of going to Barcelona [if Laporta wins],” he told EFE. “First he’ll need to talk to me and then to Juventus, but it can be done.

“Alberto Soler doesn’t know Pogba. The trip to Turin seemed political, they were there to take a photograph. It was a very strange journey. Silly.

“Paul and I were not even in Turin.”
