Legendary Inter defender Giuseppe ‘Beppe’ Bergomi has urged Inter management to sign Manchester United and France national team midfielder Paul Pogba immediately.

In the past few weeks the World Cup winning Frenchman has been linked with Inter, Juventus, Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain.

A report in the media has today suggested that Pogba will come far from cheap and could cost interested clubs in the region of €220 million to sign when the transfer fee and the wages he will be paid are combined.

The 27-year-old has been heavily linked with an exit from Manchester United for some time and may finally leave in the coming months.

“If you have the money to sign him, you have to do it immediately,” Bergomi explained in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport, an interview which appeared in today’s print edition.

It is true that in the last few seasons he has not been up to par, but he would return to a football he knows, he would have no problems with acclimatisation and could immediately make his mark.

“Beyond the technical qualities, with the physique he has, in Serie A he would still be dominant and there are few players around like him.

“Conte can bring out the best in him as he did in the past. It would be a big signing for Inter to try and win immediately.”

Bergomi, who spent his entire career on Inter’s books, then went on to state two players he thinks the club should look to sign if they are taking a more long term approach with their recruitment strategy.

“If, on the other hand, Inter are aiming to build something in the long run, I am left with the idea that players like Tonali or Locatelli would be perfect investments.”
