Juventus admit that they could lose their up-and-coming French star, Paul Pogba, if another club makes a mega bid for him.
The Old Lady secured a coup when they lured Pogba away from Manchester United and he has blossomed in Turin.
Regarded as one of the best young midfielders in the business, Pogba has reportedly already popped up on the radars of admirers like Arsenal and Real Madrid.
Juve are trying to entice him to sign a contract extension and believe they are close to succeeding. Their fear is that, due to the declining status of the Serie A in financial and footballing terms, they may be powerless to resist a future bid for Pogba’s coveted services.
"If I was to judge it from a footballers' point of view, Italy is no longer the final destination but a transit destination," Juve president Andrea Agnelli said, according to Soccernet.
"I am trying to think what will be of us in two or three years' time if we get a massive offer for one of the best talents we have today, Pogba, the French 20-year-old.
"Would we be able to retain him? I don't know. I don't think at the moment we have the strength to retain such a player.
"Look at what happened to Milan. They had to give away Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva to pay the cheques.
"At the end of the day you can be attractive, but you also need to have the economic strength."
