Juve transfer window revolves around Pogba future
Wednesday April 13 2016
Many European top teams are eager to assault Juventus for Paul Pogba, next summer.
Next summer is going to be crucial to understand if Serie A will still be ruled by insatiable Juventus during 2016-17 season. If they will succeed in keeping Paul Pogba and the other pillars of the team under the grey sky of Turin, then there are many chances for us to see one more year of black-and-white supremacy in Italy. Pushing back European top teams' assaults for this top player, however, won't be easy.
No doubts about the fact that the French international is the biggest treasure Juventus and maybe the whole Italian championship possess. Almost every big team has shown some interest about Pogba, but I believe Conte's Chelsea is, at the moment, on top of the list. Not only because Italian coach's plan is to build an instant title-winning team, but also because he is the one who started to transform Paul Pogba into the main man of Juventus' midfield, back in 2013.
Other teams like Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City are also interested in the player, not to mention Barcelona and Real Madrid, whose coach Zidane has reportedly asked president Florentino Pérez to bring Pogba to the Spanish capital.
Although the situation about Pogba's next season team remains uncertain, one thing is for sure: Juventus won't let him go for less than EUR 100 million. With that amount of money, in case of goodbye, the club could replace 'The Octopus' with one or two top players.
The main names are that of Isco and Gündoğan, two players coach Allegri always appreciated, but also ideas about James Rodríguez and Lazio's top midfielder Lucas Biglia are not to be rejected.
The new name is that of Newcastle's Georginio Wijnaldum. In case Rafa Benítez wouldn't succeed in avoiding Magpies' relegation, the Dutch midfielder would certainly ask the club to sell him, and Juventus could be very interested about this bargain.
