French starlet attracted interest over the summer.
Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has admitted that the club may find it difficult to hold on to midfielder Paul Pogba if a significant offer arrived.
The 20-year-old has been in impressive form so far this season, and has gradually established himself as a first-team player after a strong start to life in Italy.
While negotiations over a new contract continue, Agnelli has given Bianconeri supporters cause for concern after conceding that should a great financial offer arrive for the Frenchman, the club would have to consider it.
“If a great offer arrives I do not think that at this time, Juventus has the strength to hold such a player,” he is quoted as saying by La Gazzetta dello Sport during a conference in London.
The club patron went on to explain that it is a financial problem that still effects Serie A as a whole, in that the top clubs are unable to financially compete with their European rivals.
Agnelli conceded that the Italian top flight is still some distance behind the likes of the Premier League and La Liga, while Bundesliga and even Ligue 1 clubs are overtaking the Italians in terms of resources.
Nevertheless, despite his comments he will still be determined to ensure Pogba signs a new deal with the club, despite agreeing to a four-year deal last summer.
The French ace has become a vital part of coach Antonio Conte’s plans this season which in turn has resulted in a push towards improved financial terms of his deal.
Juve director general Beppe Marotta said he was optimistic about Pogba signing a new deal, while the player himself has recently stated his desire to stay in Turin.
However, Agnelli will have undoubtedly alerted several clubs around Europe to the situation, and it remains to be seen whether or not interested parties such as Arsenal return in the summer.
