Juventus are reportedly planning a transfer market strategy that would see Paul Pogba sold in order to fund their spending spree in the summer.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, as noted by Football Italia, the Turin giants are contemplating their options and could sell the French international in order to invest heavily in the squad to strengthen their position further.
Pogba has attracted interest from various clubs around Europe in recent years, with Barcelona, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester City all paired with an interest for a player that was valued at €100m by Juve last summer.
Once they have secured that significant fee, Juve plan on splashing out with Edinson Cavani and Henrikh Mkhitaryan their primary targets.
Furthermore, Bologna midfielder Amadou Diawara and Leicester City star N’Golo Kante are also being considered, with Massimiliano Allegri looking to freshen his side up in order to keep them top of the pile in Serie A as well as continuing to push on in Europe.
Pogba’s sale is also considered to be an important factor in the club being able to hold on to Chelsea target Leonardo Bonucci, and so the transfer strategy could well be a realistic proposition.
The 23-year-old is still considered a crucial part of the Bianconeri’s plans, but he has struggled to an extent to step this season following the departures of Carlos Tevez, Arturo Vidal and Andrea Pirlo although he has certainly improved as the season has gone on.
Given the players that they could sign in his place with the money from his transfer, it is arguably no surprise that Juve are considering the option, but it remains to be seen if it comes to fruition this summer.
