Juventus would reportedly need to sell 'two or three' first-team players in order to afford Paul Pogba, with Miralem Pjanic and Douglas Costa among those linked with an exit.

Juventus will reportedly need to offload 'two or three' high-profile players to raise funds to sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba this summer.

The Italian champions remain interested in bringing the France international back to Turin, but they face stiff competition for his signature from Real Madrid.

United are still eager to keep Pogba at Old Trafford, but recent reports claim that he has asked to leave the club and that Madrid are leading the race to sign him.

The Red Devils are expected to demand around £120m for Pogba, and The Guardian claims that Juventus would need to sell some key first-team players in order to afford that.

Miralem Pjanic and Douglas Costa have both been linked with an exit from Juventus this summer, while uncertainty continues to rage over the future of Paulo Dybala.

Juve have already agreed to sign Aaron Ramsey on a free transfer this summer, while they are also understood to be in talks with Brazilian full-back Wesley who, like Pogba, is a client of Mino Raiola.
