In a statement that will have all the big clubs in Europe reaching for their checkbook, Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola says that the France international could leave Juventus in the not too distant future.
Pogba recently signed a new deal with the Serie A champions until June 2019, but his representative has stressed that his long-term future does not lie in Italy.
“He will not stay in Italy much longer,” Raiola told Sport Mediaset.
“It all depends on Juventus to be honest. We have just signed a new deal and we are happy, but if the right moment comes along to leave we will not let it pass.
“We will have to wait and see what happens. I don’t know when the right moment comes along.
“I knew how talented he was, but it’s never easy to make such an impact when you bring a young guy to Italy. He has developed incredibly fast. Not even I had expected that.”
Pogba has been a key figure for Juventus so far in 2014-15, scoring five goals in 22 appearances in all competitions, including a fantastic goal against Napoli on Sunday.
Based on his age and potential, if put up for sale, Pogba will break Gareth Bale’s world record transfer. French giants PSG as well as Premier League rivals Manchester City, Man United and Chelsea have all been linked a with big money move for Pogba, who Juventus signed on a Bosman a couple of years ago when Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United failed to sign him to a new deal.
