Terry Gibson: "Pogba deal a gamble."

Signing Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba would be a huge gamble for either Real Madrid or Barcelona, says Spanish football expert Terry Gibson.

The Old Lady are asking €100m for the 22-year-old midfielder who is a key member of Juve's run to the Champions League final which they lost to Barcelona.

However, Gibson thinks the Frenchman is a good player but reckons it's a huge gamble for the Spanish big boys.

“I’m not criticising Pogba. I still think he’s a very very good young player,” he said on Sky Sports' La Liga Weekly Podcast.

“But I still think it’s a huge gamble for Real Madrid or Barcelona to pay the huge sum of money it’s going to take to get him to leave Juventus.

“I would rather have Claudio Marchisio. Marchisio is a better player than Paul Pogba.

"He played better at the weekend and he’s done it for a longer period of time. There’s a big age difference but Pogba’s a glamour signing.”
