POGBA HOPE FOR MANCHESTER CITY.

JUVENTUS president Andrea Agnelli has provided a glimmer of hope for Manchester City and other clubs interested that Paul Pogba is not a certainty to remain with the Italian champions next season.

The Turin giants already turned down a reported [euro]80m offer from Barcelona for Pogba last week.

Reports in England claim Manchester City have made a [euro]100m bid to Juve for the French international midfielder, who is also a reported target of Paris St Germain and Barcelona.

When asked if Pogba was not on the market, Agnelli said to Turin sports newspaper Tuttosport: "In football everything is possible. I remember that some years ago we wanted to keep Christian Vieri at Juventus.

"The player was considered non-transferable but a few days later, Vieri was sold to Atletico Madrid.

"Hence, my players are non-transferable from September 1."

Pogba, 22, helped Juve win a domestic double - Serie A and Coppa Italia - this past season.
