Juventus star Paul Pogba could finally be on his way out of the club in the New Year, according to his agent Mino Raiola.

The Frenchman has been highly sought after over the past few seasons, with clubs across Europe interested in signing him. But according to his agent a move could finally happen in January.

Pogba is wanted by Chelsea, Manchester City and FC Barcelona as it stands, but the likes of Manchester United, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain could also renew their interest after hearing about Pogba's availability.

Juve have struggled at the start of the new season, already languishing behind the likes of Inter Milan and Napoli, but things could get a whole lot worse in the New Year with Pogba listening to offers.

Pogba Ready to Leave

The powerhouse midfielder was on the brink of leaving Serie A over the summer, with Chelsea having a bid accepted by Juve only for Pogba himself to decline the move to the Premier League champions.

The 22-year-old was then strongly linked with agreeing a contract with La Liga champions Barcelona, which would have seen him join in January due to the Catalan club's transfer embargo.

However, no contract was agreed to and Pogba remained a Juventus player. Speaking about his client in a recent interview, Raiola admitted that Pogba is still interested in a move to the Nou Camp, but he's also not shut the door on other potential transfers.

Agent Discusses Future

"We'll see what Barca's project is, and what Paul's project is. All doors are open to all clubs," he told RMC Sport.

"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. €100million? 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."

Raiola was then asked if the move was between the Premier League and La Liga, to which he replied with: "There are others who can afford him. Bayern Munich can afford him, Paris St Germain can afford him..."

Do you think Pogba will finally be on the move in 2016?
