Laporta: ‘I’d sign Pogba’

Barcelona Presidential candidate Joan Laporta pledges ‘I’ll get Paul Pogba’ from Juventus if he wins the election.

The Catalan side have already had an €80m bid turned down for the midfielder, but the entrepreneur insists he’d get the deal done.

“If I win, as I’ve already said, I’ll get Pogba,” Laporta said in a speech, as reported by Marca.

“I have a good relationship with [Pogba’s agent Mino] Raiola, and I’d do a lot of work to reinforce the midfield.”

Laporta was President of the Blaugrana between 2003 and 2010, and is seeking to return to the post on July 18.
