      Pogba has also already "agreed personal terms" with Man U too. Why keep him when he clearly has his mind elsewhere?
      Some say Pogba is waiting for Real Madrid. Raiola is trying to convince him to join Man Utd, but Juve also wants Man Utd to pay Raiola's cut of the deal, around 20 million, which is taking time. Tiresome to read all the stories.

      I agree with Calumn, it's better to sell now and move on, unless he genuinely wants to stay.

        I'd keep Pogba, but I'd want him to sign another contract. If they don't need to sell they should give him a massive deal.

          Nah, they should sell for that mental amount unless he wants to stay.

            If they don't need the money, there is no reason to sell your best player, I don't care if it's for $1bn. If he won't re-up his contract, then obviously that's a different situation, but if I'm Juventus I'm at least feeling him out on the situation.

              Hmmm but he is not really Juve's best player now is he? One of them, yeah. Dybala looks more like the GOAT. He is the most marketable and hyped one. Which is one of the "reasons" Man Utd are willing to pay that amount.

                He's definitely their best player. If they were confident about Dybala they wouldn't be shelling out 100m for Higuain.

                  He is more of a shadow striker.

                    I agree, if anything they provided a star in the making with a star accomplice. I'm curious to see how it pants out and how Mandzukic will fit in. Juve play with two strikers for a long long time now, it's not surprising they chose to spend it in attack with Morata gone.



                    Never forget. Loan with option to buy.

                      Sure it would definitely be worth considering keeping Pogba IF he really wanted to stay at the club and was willing to commit to a bumper and super long new contract but all indications I have heard is that this is not the case - he wants to be a galactico, he wants to go to Real Madrid, he doesn't want to go to man Utd and I think he would certainly be willing to stay at juventus this summer even if it meant losing out on some money from United BUT he will always be eying that Madrid move, so he won't be signing any contracts which lock him down for the rest of his career and his sale value will decline year on year and he doesn't extend and as it becomes clearer that he is holding out for Real who will never pay this kind of money for him. I know he's a big loss but we're taking about 100m, this kind of offer won't come along again, and you'd be mad not to take it

                      Wrt Higuain, really top class number 9s are now so rare in the world that there are not even enough for every elite club to have one, therefore the alternative is what juve were doing last season and seasons before which is to have an arsenal of three very very good strikers with different skill sets and use them accordingly, not in a pecking order with a 'first choice, second choice, third choice' but in a tactical/selective rotation whereby the right man or men are used for the right game and adjustments are made mid game with substitutions if necessary. Higuain would be a perfect addition to this arsenal alongside Mandzukic and Dybala, but 75m is a lot, actually it's too much, to pay for just one member of a three man unit. If I was them I would be looking at Lukaku or Diego Costa or Milik or whatever who should be available for cheaper.

                      I also hope this approach to a strike force is the one Chelsea will adopt

                        Don't get me wrong about Dybala, I think he's an amazing player and definitely a future superstar. This is why I just don't understand the Higuain move. In all seriousness, why not just get Morata back for half the price?

                        With respect to potential future offers for Pogba, they will always be there and they will always go up. Zidane set the transfer record at 29 years old and Higuain turns 28 this summer. The offers will ALWAYS be there and honestly they will probably just go up as more and more money gets pumped into the Premier League and all these top managers get desperate because the competition is so high.

                          apparently real rejected 60m offer from Chelsea for morata so he would cost more than half a Higuain.

                          I think (young) age is becoming ever more important in the transfer market - but the point is not just his aging, it's if he doesn't sign a new contract his value will decrease if it runs into the last couple of years. Like you said, if he wants to stay and signs a new deal with juve then all is gravy, but like I said the impression that I get is that he doesn't want to stay forever and that his reason for staying would be to more easily facilitate a move to Real Madrid in one or two seasons at a lower price which they can afford

                            Well, the other thing is that you can recoup a lot of the lost value there from him being on the pitch and his jersey sales, marketing, etc.

                              Yeah but you'll also get that from whichever big signings you make with the money. Of course most important is that the money is spent wisely. I don't think we have ever seen an Italian club with an eight figure transfer kitty before - if they can apply the same transfer acumen as in the past but with bigger deals then they could do very well

                                Buffon playing in goal for a bunch of kids on his holidays. What a guy.

                                I also remember Lippi told a story about Zidane and I think Davids playing with kids in the streets of Turin, disguised with caps or hoodies.
