Paul Pogba could leave Juventus this summer for the right price, according to the club's manager Massimiliano Allegri.
As reported by Goal.com, Allegri, who led the Italian giants to the Champions League final this past season, has admitted that 'certain figures are hard to say no to', as speculation surrounding the future of the French midfielder continues to rumble on.
Pogba, of course, is regarded as one of the world's best young midfielders in the game right now, so it's not entirely surprising that some of the elite clubs in Europe have been linked with his signature of late.

In fact, the same report claims that Manchester City are preparing a world-record bid to secure his services, while they also suggest that the player's former club Manchester United have an interest.
As well as the Premier League duo from Manchester, the same report goes on to reveal that the European trio of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich have also been linked with the talented midfielder.

One thing's for sure, if any of the interested clubs make a high enough bid this summer, Juventus will certainly consider a transfer involving Pogba.
On the subject of Pogba, Juventus' manager Allegri told Gazzetta dello Sport: "Obviously, with Paul, we're talking about a corporate choice - not a technical one: certain figures are hard to say no to.
"But if Paul remains in Turin, he has to do with the right attitude and have no regrets.
"Because what we have achieved this season is only a starting point and, to build for the future, Juve need motivated young players and veterans who will convey the right spirit to their team-mates."
There's no doubt about it, the elite clubs of European football will no doubt continue to monitor the midfielder over the coming weeks, but it remains to be seen as to whether any of the clubs make their move anytime soon.
Huge for Manchester
If Pogba was to arrive back on English soil, then he'd most certainly change the dynamics ahead of the 2015/16 campaign. As it stands, Premier League winners Chelsea appear to be way in front of both Manchester United and Manchester City right now.
The signing of Pogba - for either club - would certainly change things. City, under the guidance of Manuel Pellegini, are clearly in need of improvement after a poor title defence last term. Pogba, then, would freshen things up in the middle of the park at the Etihad, with the club also seemingly desperate to make an impact in Europe sooner rather than later.
Manchester United, on the other hand, despite having already lost Pogba, would no doubt become a greater force with the Juventus man in their side. It would certainly come as a major surprise if Pogba completed a return to the Theatre of Dreams, but stranger things have happened. Both Manchester clubs should at least attempt to sign him over the coming months.
