Manchester United Seen as Clear Favourite to Land Pogba's Services

Paul Pogba is one of the most-coveted potential transfers in all of football right now, and a number of the biggest clubs in the world are vying for his services.

Pogba, who has seen his stock rise tremendously thanks to strong performances in the 2014 World Cup and 2015 Champions League, is a young player who can help any team that he joins. For that reason, the bidding for his services has been ferocious, with a number of deep-pocketed clubs looking to add his talents to their sides.

Manchester United, fresh off of adding Zlatan Ibrahimovic, is seen as the leading contender to land Pogba. The team has plenty of history with Pogba, as he played for their youth and senior teams before leaving for Juventus in 2012.

Manchester United is keen to land the talents of Pogba, and he is anxious to return to their team as well. At this point it is all about the money - Manchester United has reportedly offered 120 million Euros for Pogba, while Juventus is looking for 130 million Euros. Given Manchester United's deep pockets, there is seen as little chance that Man Utd will let Pogba go for a difference of 10 million Euros.


Juventus and Real Madrid are seen as possibilities for Pogba, though they lag far behind Manchester United's odds.


Here are the current odds to land Pogba, courtesy of Skybet and Betfair:

Man Utd, 1/5
Juventus, 6/1
Real Madrid, 6/1
Barcelona, 25/1
Chelsea, 25/1
Man City, 25/1
Bayern Munich, 40/1
PSG, 40/1


Oddsmakers are pricing in Pogba heading to Manchester United, which is why the side is currently 7/2 to win the EPL title at most sports books that we follow.
