(AP Photo/Dave Thompson)TURIN, Italy (AP) — Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta has revealed that Paul Pogba's agent will be paid 27 million euros ($30 million) for the player's record transfer to Manchester United.
Pogba returned to United in August for a world-record fee of $116 million.
Marotta was quoted by Italian media as telling Juventus' shareholders meeting Tuesday as saying "27 million (euros) will be paid to (Pogba's) agent Mino Raiola. So the total net gain for Pogba was 72 million ($78 million)" after other fees are taken into account.
Marotta says that Pogba joined Juve from United in 2012 for a bargain price of 1.5 million euros ($1.6 million).
Marotta adds that Juan Cuadrado's two-year loan from Chelsea costs 5 million euros ($5.4 million) per season and if Juventus wins Serie A this season it will be obliged to buy Cuadrado's full rights for an additional 20 million ($22 million).
