Juventus cheif executive Giuseppe Marotta has revealed more details of Paul Pogba’s world-record move to Man United over the summer, according to the Daily Mail.
Marotta told shareholders; “After four years with us he [Pogba] decided to return to England,
“He wanted to leave at all costs. Our asking price was €105m plus €5m (£4.4m) in bonuses, which is payable if the player renews with United or leaves for a fee of more than €50m.”
The Juve boss also revealed that the Frenchman’s super-agent, Mino Raiola, who attracted a flurry of attention during the saga over the summer, netted a whopping £24m for his part in the dealings.
The Italian chief said; “Mino Raiola and his company will be paid €27m. Taking fees into account, the total gain for Pogba was €72m.”
The 23-year-old hasn’t exactly set the world on fire since making his return to Old Trafford, which will be a concern for manager Jose Mourinho as he looks to find the perfect position in the side for his star asset.
However, it would be hard to imagine that Raiola is too worried over his client’s form, having secured the payday of a lifetime over the summer.
