Juventus president Andrea Agnelli admits that the Serie A club may struggle to keep hold of Paul Pogba if a big-money offer came in for the midfielder.

The 20-year-old was linked with a transfer to Arsenal over the summer, with reports claiming that the Gunners had a bid rejected for the former Manchester United man.

Now, Juve chief Agnelli has hinted that the Italian club would be open to selling the France international if the right offer arrived.

“If I was to judge it from a footballers’ point of view, Italy is no longer the final destination but a transit destination,” Agnelli said.

“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 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 has established himself as a first-team regular at the Turin outfit, scoring five goals in 27 appearances in Juve’s title-winning campaign.

He made three appearances in two seasons at Manchester United before completing a move to Juventus in July 2012.
