Sir Alex Ferguson: Juventus should sell Paul Pogba
Sir Alex Ferguson has advised Juventus to cash in on Paul Pogba, according to Tuttosport.
Ferguson was in charge of Manchester United when Pogba arrived as a youth player in 2009 but the midfielder left for Juve when his contract expired in 2012 after growing frustrated at his lack of first-team chances.
The France international, 22, has attracted interest from a host of top clubs this summer, but Juve rejected an €80 million bid from Barcelona and have said he is not for sale.
Ferguson, though, reportedly said when attending the Wimbledon tennis championship that the Italian champions should sell the player.
"Yes, I'd sell Pogba," the Scot, who retired in 2013, said. "Yes, it's true I already ended up losing him on a free, but now, if I were Juve, I'd sell."
He praised Massimiliano Allegri's side, who won Serie A and the Coppa Italia last season as well as reaching the Champions League final, which they lost 3-1 to Barcelona.
"It's a fantastic team," he said. "They've won the league four times in a row and in the Champions League I think they were unfortunate because they were hit on the counterattack by Barcelona, but before that they'd dominated the game."
