Juventus have been urged by Aldo Spinelli, the president of Livorno, to sanction the transfer of Paul Pogba were a suitor to offer €80 million for the French midfielder, given that such a sizeable fee could be enough to fund moves for Angel di Maria, Marco Verratti and Edinson Cavani.
Pogba has flourished since his transfer from Manchester United to Juventus in the summer of 2012, and the performances of the 20-year-old have led to frequent speculation about his future. Real Madrid have been credited with interest in Pogba, as have Paris Saint-Germain.
The summer transfer window will undoubtedly spark yet more reports about the position of Pogba at Juventus, and Spinelli believes the Italian champions would be mad not to sell the player were an exorbitant offer to be made.
Juventus may be loath to sell one of their key performers but, says Spinelli, Pogba’s hypothetical departure could result in the respective arrivals of Di Maria, Verratti and Cavani in Turin.
“If someone offers 80 million, [Juventus] must sell immediately,” Spinelli said, as reported by Le10Sport.
“And with the money, if I had it to spend, I'd take Di Maria. With 80 million, they can also get Verratti and Cavani."
Pogba has established himself as one of the most sought after players in Europe during his brief time with Juventus, with the France international’s high class displays earning him the Golden Boy award somewhat unanimously.
