Agnelli: Difficult to keep Pogba

Juventus President Andrea Agnelli has admitted that the club would have to accept offers for Paul Pogba.

The French midfielder arrived from Manchester United last year on a free transfer, but has already become one of Antonio Conte’s key players.

The Bianconeri chief though, has conceded that the club couldn’t turn down big offers for the youngster.

“If a huge offer arrived for Paul Pogba,” he told reporters. “I don’t think, right now, we would be strong enough to resist it.

"If I was to judge it from a footballers' point of view, Italy is no longer the final destination but a transit destination.

"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.

"Look at what happened to 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."
