Marotta: ‘€100m not enough for Pogba’

Juventus director general Giuseppe Marotta says ‘€100m will not be enough’ for Paul Pogba if he continues to develop.

The Bianconeri rejected an €80m bid from Barcelona for the midfielder, and there were reports Chelsea were preparing an even bigger offer.

“We’ve invested so much, partly because there were gaps in the squad,” Marotta explained in a Press conference.

“The departures of [Andrea] Pirlo and [Carlos] Tevez didn’t generate any revenue, or very little, given their age.

“What I’ve noticed is that we’re in a particular market, and next year values will increase by 30 or 40 per cent.

“I’ve noticed how the Premier League has become richer, and we’ve seen clubs buying players for what would have been crazy prices until recently, but are very normal today.

“Next year I predict even bigger deals. If Pogba maintains his level of performance from last year, then €100m will not be enough to get him.”
