Agent: Juve must consider what Pogba wants

Paul Pogba's agent has urged Juventus to consider the midfielder's needs and ambition as he continues to talk up interest in the French star.

Mino Raiola has continued to discuss the future of the France international over recent weeks, even going so far as claiming that talks are ongoing with Real Madrid.

It now appears as if Pogba's representative could be paving the way for smooth transfer negotiations.

"There are only six clubs who can afford him," Raiola told Mediaset Premium. "So it's easy to guess who they are.

"If Pogba found a more important project, then Juventus must take that into account. In any case, he is happy in Turin and never denied that.

"Juventus are a very big club and a great team. Paul has to grow, it's true, and he is at Juve now, so any transfer would have to pass first through the Bianconeri.

"He always wants to test himself against any reality, be it Juve, another team or France."

Pogba has remained silent on the matter, with his focus clearly on Les Bleus' European Championship campaign.

"Players always aim to move forward. That is not a problem," Raiola continued.

"The real problem is now that transfer gossip has become more important than football played on the pitch and that’s not right. Transfer gossip is fake and has become like a reality show."
