Former France President Nicolas Sarkozy says he would pay to bring Paul Pogba to PSG
Paris, May 17 (IANS) Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, a well-known Paris Saint-German (PSG) fan, has said he would be willing to pay out of his pocket to get Italian club Juventus player Paul Pogba signed for the French club.
Sarkozy conveyed in a conversation with Twitter users on Saturday he is a friend of PSG's Qatari president Nasser al-Khelaifi, and asked him to do anything possible to sign Pogba, joking about the need to simply name his price.
"Message received about Pogba. I share your opinion, but we're going to have to club together [to pay for him]", Sarkozy wrote.
The player's agent has not closed the door on leaving Juventus at the end of the season even though Pogba reached the Champions League final with the team.
Media reports have said English club Manchester City is willing to pay 95 million euros ($108.6 million) to secure his services.
