The bargain price Juventus are willing to sell Paul Pogba for

The Italian side have grown impatient with the midfielder

Juventus are willing to cash in on Paul Pogba just 12 months after he returned to Turin on a free transfer, with the Old Lady looking to raise funds after missing out on European football.

As part of their ongoing investigation, the Italian side have reportedly agreed to forego participation in the UEFA Conference League next season despite qualifying for the competition through their finish in Serie A last season.

It means that they are looking to trim their squad, and they have already let Angel di Maria leave, while they are also set to let Juan Cuadrado and Alex Sandro leave this summer on free transfers.

Though they have retained Adrien Rabiot, they are still looking to offload players from a bloated squad, with Denis Zakaria expected to depart after spending last season on loan with Chelsea, and Weston McKennie likely to do likewise after spending the second half of the season in midfield for relegated Leeds United.

Another player that they are willing to part ways with is Pogba, whose homecoming dream has turned into a nightmare in his 12 months back in Turin. Returning from Manchester United on a free transfer, the 30-year-old managed just six Serie A appearances as he was plagued by injuries, all while taking home a mammoth salary.

As a result, the Frenchman is thought to be free to leave the club this summer, and has drawn interest from Saudi Arabia. What’s more, he is available for just 10m euros, according to reports coming out of Italy, which could make him one of the bargains of the summer if (and its a big if) he was able to stay fit.
