Paul Pogba: Could stay in Turin

Paul Pogba’s agent says Barcelona are only one of several clubs that the midfielder could join if he decides to leave Juventus.

The 22-year-old was strongly linked with Barca over the summer but eventually stayed put in Turin amid reports that a deal had already been agreed for him to move to the Nou Camp once the club’s transfer embargo has been lifted.

His agent, Mino Raiola, denied the speculation at the weekend and has now said that Pogba would consider any offers that came away. Juve, however, would want 100 million euros (almost £72million) for the France star.

Raiola told RMC Sport: “We’ll see what Barca’s project is, and what Paul’s project is. All doors are open to all clubs.

“For now, the young man decided last summer to stay for a minimum of one year at Juventus. We should always respect the will of a player when he chooses with his heart.

“We can’t give figures, but last year Juventus said no to offers of 85million euros. One hundred million euros? Juve have always said that’s the sum they want. It’s a way of saying he’s one of the best players on the planet.

“When he left Manchester (United) for Juve he chose with his heart, and it will be the same with his next club.”

Asked whether it was a straight choice between an English or Spanish club for his next move, Raiola added: “There are others who can afford him. Bayern Munich can afford him, Paris St Germain can afford him…”
