Saudi Arabian side Al-Ittihad have now launched a move for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.
Gianluca di Marzio has confirmed the rumours that Pogba was in Jeddah on Friday, stating that he is still in Saudi Arabia after having visited Al-Ittihad’s training facilities. A video has already emerged of his visit.
But Al-Ittihad have put forward their move for the Frenchman, having offered €100m on a three-year deal for the ex-Manchester United midfielder, who is yet to decide about his future at the Bianconeri.
Rafaela Pimenta had a meeting with the midfielder last week and Saudi Arabia was a key topic. It seems as if she is behind the move, as it was reported that while Pogba is keen on staying at Juve, his lawyer has other ideas.
The midfielder re-joined Juve last summer but he faced multiple injuries and failed to make a mark last season after arriving on a free transfer when his contract at United had expired.
