The president of Serie A champions Juvents has claimed that the Italian giants may not be able to keep hold of star man Paul Pogba, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

The exciting France international has really come to prominence in Turin ever since he decided to controversially quit Manchester United in the summer of 2012 to move to Turin on a lucrative free transfer.

And having joined the ‘Old Lady of Italian Football’ just over a year ago, Pogba has gone on to establish himself as being one of the most creative and skilful attacking midfield players currently operating in Serie A.

In total, the Frenchman has managed to find the back of the net on seven occasions in 46 matches in all competitions for Juve, including six strikes in his 35 league outings for the club.

However, with a contract with Juventus that now only runs until June 30 2016, the Italians will soon be needing to sit down with the 20-year-old’s representatives to discuss the possibility of Pogba putting pen to paper on a contract extension in Turin.

But, according to Juve supremo Andre Agnelli, who was speaking at the Leaders in Football Conference at Stamford Bridge, the club may struggle to keep hold of their star man at the club in the future.

“In two or three years time, we get a massive offer for Pogba, would we be able to retain him? I don’t know. The Italian league used to be a final destination for international top players,” said Agnelli.

“What I sense now is that we are a transit destination. Even for Italian players, they can graduate in Italy but then find their ultimate success elsewhere.”
