Pogba is 'like a Monet', agent warns Chelsea

The agent of Juventus star Paul Pogba tells potential suitors Chelsea and Real Madrid that the French midfielder is 'as valuable as a Monet painting'.

According to outspoken agent Mino Raiola, Juventus ace Paul Pogba is worth as much as a Monet painting.

Pogba has lit up Serie A this season and is fast becoming one of the Old Lady's greatest assets, sparking interest from a number of top clubs all over Europe, including Chelsea and Real Madrid.

The 20-year-old has rejected suggestions that he may leave Turin and insists that he is very happy with Juve but if he were to choose to leave he could command a vast sum.

"I'm not worried about what Pogba is worth, by now he's like a Monet" the player's representative Raiola told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Where we put him, or where he plays doesn't matter, his value is there for all to see." 

Pogba may not be travelling to Brazil next summer after France lost their World Cup 2014 qualification play-off first leg 2-0 to Ukraine.

"The World Cup doesn't add value to a player," Raiola claimed. "It's club football that does that and the performances week in, week out.

"In my opinion, Pogba is definitely the best player of his age in the world and now we will see if he can get even better. 

"Zlatan Ibrahimovic shows that a player can just keep learning, even at 32 years of age."
