Juventus manager Massimo Allegri believes Paul Pogba must show no regrets after the summer transfer window slams shut in September, reports the Express.

The French midfielder has been strongly linked with a move away from Turin, with several clubs across Europe all interested in signing him.

However, nothing formal has been agreed as of yet, and his future is still in the air.

Pogba is wanted by three Premier League clubs, a French club, a German club and two Spanish clubs, with all of them having more financial power than Juventus, and Allegri is aware that money could talk over the summer.

Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich are the teams linked with signing Pogba, and the Juve boss is aware that they can offer big money for both the transfer fee and the player's wages.

Pogba currently earns around £90k-a-week in Italy, but interested parties could easily double that without effecting their budget too much.

The 22-year-old has had yet another fine campaign in Italy with The Old Lady, winning the double and also reaching the Champions League finale for the first-time over a decade.

Sadly for Juve, they fell just short in Berlin, losing 3-1 to Barcelona.

Transfer Fee and Allegri's Concerns

According to reports, Juventus want at least £58million for the French international, and Allegri has admitted that he expects a club to cough up the money in order to sign Pogba.

However, the manager reiterated the importance that the midfielder gets his head right if a summer move away falls through.

Allegri is concerned about Pogba's long-term focus on Juve if a summer deal does collapse, and he's adamant to not let it effect his performances on the pitch.

Allegri told La Gazzetta dello Sport: "This is a club decision and not a managerial one, but certainly it’s hard to say no to some figures.

“But if Paul stays he must do so with the right attitude and without regret, because what we’ve achieved this season is only the beginning."

Busy Summer Underway

Juve have already been busy in the transfer window, signing Sami Khedira on a free after he agreed to leave Real Madrid, and Paulo Dybala from Palermo.

However, they could be set to lose Carlos Tevez, who is set to make an announcement regarding his future on Wednesday.
