Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri has admitted that Juventus would find it very difficult to turn down a huge offer for star midfielder Paul Pogba.

The 22-year-old France international is wanted by Manchester City, Barcelona, Paris St Germain and Real Madrid and, should a huge offer be made, it’s believed Juventus would be winning to sell.

“A Pogba transfer? Obviously it would be a decision made by the club and not by the technical team,” Allegri said to Gazzetta dello Sport.

“When you talk about certain figures, it’s difficult to say no.

“But if Paul remains in Turin, he should do it with the right mentality and without having any regrets.”

Pogba has a contract with the Old Lady until June 2019 but Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane, who himself moved from Juventus to the Bernabeu as a player, has hinted that they want to sign the midfielder.

“I find it fantastic. What I like about him is that he has everything,” Zidane told RTL.

“He’s a complete player, also capable of scoring goals because he gets forward. His footballing qualities are extraordinary.

“A lot of clubs are interested, we can also talk about Real. Inevitably, talented players are of interest to all big clubs.”

Massimiliano Allegri is also uncertain on whether he will have Carlos Tevez in his team next season.

The Argentinian forward is under contract for another year but has been linked with former team Boca Juniors while Atletico Madrid are also keen to sign the 31-year-old.
