Concern levels will be raised at Juventus as Paul Pogba has reportedly terminated the rent contract for his house in Turin, thus suggesting he is ready to move to Real Madrid this summer.
As with all such stories, there is of course a possibility that there is an innocent reason behind the move, such as merely just changing house.
However, given the comments from his agent Mino Raiola in recent days where he suggested that negotiations are at an early stage with the Spanish giants, it will be seen as another step towards the French international leaving the Serie A champions ahead of next season.
Pogba’s more immediate focus is on helping France at Euro 2016 after they booked their spot in the last-16 of the tournament, but his club future is naturally becoming a distraction.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Pogba has decided not to renew the rent contract on his house in Turin, and that in turn has led to more concern over his future.
Nevertheless, there is another counter-argument with many pointing out that he did the same last summer before eventually staying in the same house.
However, it is claimed that this time is different as Raiola has given the green light for the owners to find another occupant, which suggests that Pogba really is moving on this time round.
The 23-year-old has been a pivotal part of Juve’s dominance in recent years, and his departure will naturally be a huge blow for the Bianconeri despite their signing of Miralem Pjanic earlier this month.
Massimiliano Allegri will therefore hope to keep hold of him, but a move to Madrid and a chance to work with Zinedine Zidane could be too appealing to turn down for the Frenchman.
