This morning, Real Madrid Football Club have released an official statement on their website, denying they’ve made a bid for Juventus’ Paul Pogba.
Media outlet La Stampa had claimed that Los Blancos had approached Pogba, offering him a five-year-deal worth €10m a year. However, Madrid have strongly denied that this is the case.
The official club’s statement read: “Following the reports published in the Italian newspaper La Stampa concerning an alleged offer from Real Madrid for the player Paul Pogba, the club wishes to state the following.”
“Real Madrid have had no contact either with Juventus or the player’s agent and, as a consequence, the reports published in this newspaper are completely false.”
Paul Pogba has been a name on the agenda for the majority of European giants. With it being strongly expressed that Real Madrid’s Sami Khedira is all but a Juventus player, this has sparked a debate as to whether or not the German has been brought in to replaced ex-Manchester United midfielder Pogba.
Pogba made 34 appearances for Juventus last season, scoring 10 goals and grabbing five assists.
