Real Madrid lead the race to sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba and face competition from Juventus and Inter for his signature according to a report in today’s print edition of La Repubblica.
The French international midfielder wishes to leave the Premier League club after three and a half seasons there having returned to the club from Juventus back in 2016.
The 26-year-old could cost as much as €200 million between the transfer fee and his wages and the report suggests that he is one of several players that Juventus and Inter could lock horns over.
It goes on to state that Christian Eriksen is also a target for both clubs who will try to outdo one another in order to disrupt the others transfer plans.
For example, Juventus are really keen on Chelsea’s Emerson Palmieri whilst Inter like his teammates Marcos Alonso. If one of the teams is to sign their target, it will almost certainly mean the other club will not get theirs.
The report also goes on to add that Juventus’ chief football officer Fabio Paratici is worried about the prospect of Inter signing Arturo Vidal from Barcelona and is doing everything he can to try and prevent that from happening.
