Wenger brands Man Utd 'completely crazy' over Pogba pursuit

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is stunned by Manchester United’s world record move for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.

Wenger suggested he would not pay over the odds by calling Pogba’s £100million move to Manchester United “completely crazy”.

“It is completely crazy if you cannot afford to pay it. If you can afford to pay it you can justify it.

“It is completely crazy if you compare it to normal life. That is for sure. But we live in a world where every activity that is worldwide makes a lot of money.

“Football has become a worldwide competition and that is why clubs can afford to do it. Does it make sense in the way the player can give you that investment back? Nobody ever could calculate.

“Since I am in this sport I always thought the record cannot go higher and I was always wrong. Maybe in a few years it will be 200, 300, who knows?”
