PSG have been heavily linked with the young French star for months now, and L’Equipe believes that Juve’s exit from the Champions League will put added pressure on them to sell the former Manchester United player.
According to the Paris-based paper, the Ligue 1 champions will test the resolve of Juventus with a €40m offer for Pogba during the January winter window.
Not reaching the knockout stages of the Champions League will cost the Italian champions tens if millions of Euros in lost revenue, and the chance to make a €40m profit on Pogba in 18 months might be too much for them to turn down.
It’s a difficult situation for the Italian side, who are part of that old breed of European clubs. In a perfect world they would want to keep Pogba, but are some point the money will be too much for them to turn down. And since money is no objective to the nouveau riche at Paris Saint-Germain, the French champions can just tell Juventus to name their price.
