Club Chief Reveals How Pogba Forced United Move


Juventus director Beppe Marotta has revealed the actions that led to Paul Pogba’s departure from the Serie A champions.

Apparently, Juve have not recovered from the loss of the French midfielder, Paul Pogba to Manchester United in a world record deal; the club’s director Marotta has now come out to admit the club were desperate to keep Pogba but he forced through a move to the Old Trafford.

Marotta said: ‘We always said we never wanted to sell Pogba, as he was an important figure for the club, the coach and the fans,

‘He wanted a change of scenery and to experience a different situation, so faced with that we had to enter into negotiations and try to make him happy.

‘We had already targeted Higuain and he was the main image we had in our head, but it was a coincidence that this happened at the same time that Pogba asked to leave.’

Although, Juventus did good business in the summer signing the likes of Gonzalo Higuain, Miralem Pjanic, Marko Pjaca, Medhi Benatia and Juan Cuadrado but the loss of the Pogba was disappointing.
