Paul Pogba: Juventus player will leave club, says agent

Midfielder Paul Pogba will leave Juventus within the next two years, according to his agent.

The 21-year-old France player, who joined Juve from Manchester United in 2012, has scored eight goals in 26 club appearances this season.

Agent Mino Raiola told Gazzetta dello Sport: "If Paul leaves Juventus, it is for the absolute top. If it does not happen this year, it will be next year.

"Paul is the only major star who is available at the end of the season."

He added: "If you cannot take Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi or Zlatan Ibrahimovic, you can only go for Paul."

But the agent believes the man who cost the club a reported £800,000 two and a half years ago would only go for a world-record fee. Gareth Bale cost Real Madrid £85.3m (100m euros) last summer.

"If someone wants him, the market situation could see him go for more than 100m euros," Raiola said.

Earlier this month, Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri said Pogba could become the best player in the world.
