Paul Pogba: Potential destinations (1)

Juventus seem to be doing all they can to shop around former-Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Which is strange because the Frenchman has emerged as one of European football's brightest young talents in his 12 months in Turin so far.

First, Juve president Andrea Agnelli admitted his club faces a battle to hold on to Pogba - "I don't think…we have the strength to retain such a player" - before vice-captain Giorgio Chiellini said he wouldn't be surprised if he left.

"If someone wants to believe in fairytales and Father Christmas that's his prerogative," Chiellini told Gazetta dello Sport.

"At the moment, Pogba is the biggest talent in international football in his position.

"If Juve do receive an obscenely high offer for him…just look at the price Bale went for."

But, in a bizarre reversal of roles, Pogba and his agent seem to be hinting at the opposite - Pogba's representative said his client is 'worth twice as much as Bale' - that puts his valuation at roughly £160m - and that he's keen to stay.

What's going on? Since when did a team actively try and shop around one of their best young players?

Anyway, Juve may be publicly courting mega-bids for Pogba but they're unlikely to be short of suitors for the 20-year-old midfielder.

Most top Champions League clubs will at least consider a move for Pogba if he is truly on the market - and here we consider five such possible destinations.
