Paul Pogba could leave Juventus within a year, agent Mino Raiola says

Paul Pogba's agent has suggested the France international could quit Juventus in a year's time, insisting they will seize the opportunity "when the right moment comes" to leave the Serie A club.

Pogba, 21, signed a three-year contract extension with the Bianconeri in October, tying him to the Turin club until 2019, which L'Equipe reports made him the third-highest paid player in the Italian top flight.

Despite the new deal, the former Manchester United midfielder, who has established himself as one of the game's finest young talents since leaving Old Trafford and joining Juve in 2012, could quit the club, according to his representative, Mino Raiola.

Asked whether Italian football could afford to keep Pogba given that Zlatan Ibrahimovic left for Paris Saint-Germain, Raiola told Mediaset. "No.

"We are happy with Juve, we have extended the contract, it's all fine [but] whether this season or the next, when the right moment comes [to leave], we'll take it."

Juve general director Giuseppe Marotta told Sky Italia this week that "all the European clubs are watching him and have been in contact with us" but added: "We don't have a need to sell him."

Paris Saint-Germain and United are reported to be keen to sign the midfielder, while Mediaset has claimed Real Madrid may offer 100 million euros and wages worth 10 million euros a season. 

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri is quoted as saying: "That everyone wants Pogba is, I think, normal: he is young, already a great player and he can still improve further -- he hasn't reached his full potential yet. But let's concentrate on the present: we don't know what will happen in June."
