Raiola: No Chance Of Pogba Joining Barcelona

share on:

If you ever saw Pogba joining Barcelona, his agent, Mino Raiola has vehemently stated that there is no chance of the Juventus midfielder doing so.

As at last season, Paul Pogba who is heavily wanted by the major clubs, was linked with a move to Barcelona.

Pogba is on the wish list of premier league giants, Chelsea and money spenders Manchester City.

As at last month, Raiola was talking about a possible move to Barcelona, but that seems to be dead in the water.

“[Joining] Barcelona? If I’m honest no because we’d already spoken with them and there was no chance of them buying him,” he told Italian radio programme ‘La politica nel pallone’.

“We’ve said that when we feel the time is right, with the right project, the right team and all parties in agreement, we’ll be able to leave.”

Raiola re-stated a claim that Juve received three offers that could have amounted to €100 million with add-ons during the close-season, but claimed it is no formality that Pogba will leave Turin.

“In the end there were three big clubs with €85 million on the table, or a little more including add-ons, which took the total to €100 million, but a deal was not concluded because Pogba didn’t want to leave and Juventus wanted him to stay for at least another year,” he added.

“Why not [stay at Juventus]? We turned down several teams last year, we’re looking for the right moment.

“This means that Pogba has not yet decided to definitely leave at the end of the season.”
