Ashanti Region Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Bernard Antwi Boasiako, popularly known as Chairman Wonntumi, has asked Ghana Premier League giants Asante Kotoko to submit a bid for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba.
Paul Pogba has two years left on his contract but multiple reports suggest that the English Premier League side have lowered their asking price for the World Cup winner to £53 million and Chairman Wonntumi is ready to bring him to Asante Kotoko.
Speaking on Wontumi TV on Friday morning, the businessman heaped praises on Asante Kotoko’s new Chief Executive Officer, Nana Yaw Amponsah, and urged him to bid for Paul Pogba to make a strong statement.
“I believe in Nana Yaw Amponsah. I think that guy has vision to help Ghana’s football so I have asked them to go to Manchester United to trigger the release clause of Paul Pogba…You know day-in day-out, his price comes down and now I learnt it’s around £53 million. I will pay,” he promised
According to Chairman Wontumi, Asante Kotoko buying Paul Pogba will make them more popular and bigger than Manchester United.
“I want to bring him to Kumasi Asante Kotoko SC and tell the world that there’s a club in Ghana bigger than Manchester United.”
He added: “There’s a business aspect that you haven’t seen but I will make returns through the sale of his jerseys and others so paying his weekly wages would not be a problem at all.”
