Cape Town - Juventus have hinted at the possibility of accepting a mega-offer for France international star Paul Pogba this summer.

According to the Irish Examiner, Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri says the Italian double winners will not stand in the way of a move away from the club.

“A Pogba transfer? Obviously it would be a decision made by the club and not by the technical team,” Allegri told 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.”

The 22-year-old midfielder, who left Manchester United in 2012, now seems set to be the subject of a four-way race for his services.

Barcelona and Real Madrid have reportedly joined the race alongside PSG and English club, Manchester City.

Pogba's contract expires in 2019 meaning that any club seriously interesting in signing the player will have to offer Juventus in the region of between £60 to £80 million.
