How much did Juve get for Pogba?

Paul Pogba completed his transfer to Manchester United last night, but there is still confusion over the Juventus figures.

The Bianconeri released a statement confirming “the definitive transfer of the registration rights of the player Paul Labile Pogba for a consideration of €105m to be paid in two financial years.

“The consideration may increase of €5m on achieving given conditions in the course of the duration of the contract.

“The economic effect is positive for about €72.6m, net of solidarity subsidy and auxiliary expenses.”

These figures are causing some confusion, as Juventus signed Pogba as a free agent from Manchester United in 2012.

Calciomercato.com have calculated that the profit is so low because Juve took on most of the commission owed to agent Mino Raiola, in the region of €25m.

Raiola also evidently received commissions at every contractual renewal in Turin for a total of €6m.

The Bianconeri also owed Manchester United a €2m development fee for taking him as a teenager.

Raiola hasn't finished earning off this move yet, as he's reportedly set to receive a proportion of Pogba's €13m per year wages at Old Trafford.
