‘Juve Should Sell Pogba, He’s No Messi’

Former Juventus coach, Giovanni Trapattoni has insisted that the club should sell prized asset, Paul Pogba, and cash in on the huge transfer fee that they could potentially get from Real Madrid.

Reports: Barca To Join Pogba Chase

The talented French midfielder was the subject of heavy speculation during the January transfer window and it is now widely believed that the Spanish giants will make a big money move for the 2013 Golden Boy Award winner. 75-year-old Italian coach, Trapattoni insists that Juventus should take the money.

“If a club wants to do crazy things for a player then it's better to let them go,” he told Tuttosport.

He then went on to say that Pogba is not as good as Lionel Messi and that any money made from selling him would allow the club to reinvest in top quality players elsewhere. He concluded by saying that he believes the club will retain their Serie A title this season and win a fifth in a row next season.

“Pogba is a great player but he isn't Messi. It would be silly not to sell him for €100m,” he added.  Juventus could get three quality players at a medium to high European level with the money.

“There is the potential for Juventus to win five Scudetti in a row.

“Inside Juventus, though, they will be planning two years ahead of where we are now and they will be thinking of winning seven or eight straight titles. It's an engine that never stops running.

Pogba has scored seven goals and made two assists in 24 appearances for Juventus this season.
