'Only a matter of time before Pogba joins Barcelona'

Fifa agent Ernesto Bronzetti expects Luis Enrique’s men to eventually land the midfielder and believes there is a high possibility Alvaro Morata will return to Real Madrid

Juventus will eventually lose Paul Pogba to Barcelona, according to Fifa agent Ernesto Bronzetti.

The 22-year-old mainstay in the Bianconeri midfield was targeted by a host of Europe’s wealthiest sides over the summer, with Barcelona amongst the forerunners for his signature.

Pogba ultimately spurned the advances of the treble winners, but Bronzetti believes it is only a matter of time before the sought-after France international turns out in their colours.

“I know that Barcelona are after him [Pogba],” he told Tuttosport. “It’s likely he’ll end up there sooner or later.

“We’ll have to see whether Juventus decide to sell him. In any case, Barca are not the only Spanish club looking for him.”

Bronzetti also stated the Serie A champions could be set to lose Alvaro Morata to Real Madrid, with the capital club retaining an option to re-sign their academy product for €30 million at the end of this season.

“As far as I know Real’s intention is of taking him back,” he continued. “But we’ll have to see what Morata himself says.

“You don’t go to Real with reluctance. They certainly aren’t the type of club that will keep those who don’t want to stay with them.

“Real are changing their policies and they are putting a lot more emphasis on the players from their youth squads. For them, someone like Morata may be interesting too.”

The striker moved to Turin for €20m in the summer of 2014, with his goals proving crucial to Massimiliano Allegri’s men winning a league and cup double last term.
