The French midfielder is being courted by Europe's leading clubs and The Daily Star believes that the pair will be allowed leave the Eithadf to fund the move for the £74m rated Pogba.

Earlier this month it was reported that Chelsea too were prepared to off-load two of their stars in their pursuit of the talented former Manchester United player, with Oscar and Ramires mooted as targets for the Italian club.

On interest in Pogba, Juve director Pavel Nedved said: "We know that Barca and other big clubs want him. But Pogba has a contract with us."

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho may be willing to part with one or both of Oscar and Ramires if it helps him land Pogba, 22, or another of his key summer objectives: Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke or Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.

Chelsea inquired about Koke last summer and are ready to make a new move if they cannot land Pogba.
