Marotta: We didn’t have to sell Pogba to Man U

Oct 2016

Marotta claims Juventus would have signed Higuain for £75.3m even if they had blocked Pogba from joining Manchester United for £89million.

I know [Napoli President] Aurelio [De Laurentiis] well. He is a passionate man and with Higuain there was a lot of controversy surrounding his move to Juventus. It’s not true, though, that this move was closely linked to Paul Pogba’s departure.We could have done the deal and still retained him, because in the past five years under the management of Andrea Agnelli our turnover has more than doubled, and we have considerable muscle if we want to buy new players.
