The Bianconeri are preparing for the new-look Juventus under coach Maurizio Sarri are and expected to make significant changes to the squad.

Sky Sport Italia’s Gianluca Di Marzio reports that Pogba is the primary target for Juve however negotiations with Manchester United will be difficult as they don’t want to sell the Frenchman, and in an effort to keep him, they won’t entertain offers less than €150m.

In a column for Goal Italia, Romeo Agresti suggests that Real Madrid have been working on Pogba for months but Juve are monitoring his situation and are in constant contact with Mino Raiola.

Fabio Paratici met with Manchester United executives last week and Juventus would like to insert a player in any potential deal for Pogba in an effort to bring down the cost.

This morning’s Gazzetta Dello Sport goes along with the idea that Pogba is firmly among Juve’s plans for the midfield next summer, however they suggest that an alternative name could be Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

Federico Chiesa is touted as the Bianconeri’s main objective in attack by both outlets following previous reports that Juve already have an agreement with the player and are waiting for him to help facilitate his move from Fiorentina this summer.

Gazzetta also suggest that Cancelo will be the first departure of the summer while Sami Khedira’s could also leave the club along with Mario Mandzukic, who has offers from the Bundesliga.

Mattia Perin and Leonardo Spinazzola’s futures hang in the balance and the goalkeeper in particular could leave this summer in search of regular playing time.
