Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United are all reportedly interested in Paul Pogba and the fans of all three clubs are excited at the prospect. Arsenal fans are also dreaming of his potential arrival.
The mooted fee for Pogba is £77million. That’s a huge figure, but you can see why he would command such an amount. He’s just 21 but is already regarded as one of the best midfielders in the world. His commanding presence would make him the perfect replacement for Yaya Toure at Manchester City and provide Arsenal with the Vieira-like player they are searching for. Chelsea have the funds to make such a move, whilst Manchester United are very ambitious in making a move – after they released him as a teenager.
The fresh rumours of a Pogba move to the Premier League arose today when his agent admitted Pogba may look to move on in the next year. If he is allowed to leave this summer, he’ll certainly create a big bidding war, and is likely to command wages in excess of £200,000 per-week. Here’s what the fans are saying about a potential Pogba move:
Use Jovetic as part of Pogba deal in summer. Jovetic plus £30m will get us a top class DM.

Paul Pogba's agent: "Can he remain in Italy? No. (…) We are happy with Juventus, but when the right chance will arrive, we'll take it."

Pogba is already world class (or damn close ) . He isn't even 23 yet. It will forever hurt that we let him go and kept cleverly

Two Chelsea fans weren’t so enthusiastic about a possible move, though.
We don't need Pogba, I'd prefer a clever CAM type player as I prefer Fabregas deeper and Oscar isn't top class YET.

We seriously don't need Pogba, I don't know why we continue to obsess over him. Would rather spend that money on a top-class CB.
