Arsenal and Chelsea given hope in Serie A hunt

Juventus' Paul PogbaJuventus president Andrea Agnelli has confessed that the club may sell midfielder Paul Pogba in the not too distant future.

The 20-year-old has established himself as one of Europe’s top young players since leaving Manchester United, attracting the attention of his former club as well as Arsenal and Chelsea.

Pogba elected to leave Old Trafford last year in search of regular first-team action after finding opportunities hard to come by under Sir Alex Ferguson.

He has excelled in Turin, but Agnelli has hinted that the Old Lady may let the youngster leave due to the financial muscle of English teams.

“If I was to judge it from a footballers’ point of view, Italy is no longer the final destination but a transit destination,” he said during a Italian Football conference,” he is quoted by the Daily Star.

“I am trying to think what will be of us in two or three years’ time if we get a massive offer for one of the best talents we have today, Pogba, the French 20-year-old.

“Would we be able to retain him? I don’t know. I don’t think at the moment we have the strength to retain such a player.

“Look at what happened to AC Milan. They had to give away Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva to pay the cheques.

“At the end of the day you can be attractive, but you also need to have the economic strength.”

Pogba was linked with a return to the Premier League over the summer, but rejected the possibility of leaving Juve by claiming that he was happy in Italy.

However, the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and United may make move for his services in the future if he continues to develop at his current rate.
