Shocking quotes as agent looks to engineer Pogba exit.
Juventus have to sell Chelsea and Manchester United target Paul Pogba at some point in the near future, his agent Mino Raiola is quoted as saying in the Manchester Evening News.
The 21-year-old is one of the most in-demand players on the market at the moment after some superb form in Serie A, and could cost a huge amount, which Raiola believes Juventus should accept as they look to build an entirely new-look team.
“My father always said that it’s better to sell and then to regret it than not to sell and regret it,” he said.
“If you sell Pogba, you’ve got enough money to build a side that can win the Champions League.
“If you want to keep hold of him, then you’ve got to build a side strong enough for Pogba to improve in – but if you don’t sell him, you don’t have the money to do that.
“Everybody has got a card in their hand, and it’s all about when you play it. If it’s not this year, it will be the year after.
“All I want is that whoever wants to buy him really believes in him and pays him the world, and if Paul leaves Juve he does it to go to the very top. He is a [future] Ballon d’Or winner, like [Pavel] Nedved.
“He’s the only star player available to buy this summer and, if somebody wants him, just you watch how the market drives the value above 100 million. If you can’t get [Cristiano] Ronaldo, [Lionel] Messi or [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic, then you can only get him.”
