French midfielder Paul Pogba will leave Juventus in the next two years, his agent told Italian newspaper Gazetta dello Sport

"If Paul leaves Juventus, it is for the absolute top," agent Mino Raiola said, as translated by the BBC. "If it does not happen this year, it will be next year. Paul is the only major star who is available at the end of the season."

Raiola added that teams could be willing to pay a high price for Pogba because there are few players of his caliber available. Raiola speculated that Pogba could fetch a record transfer fee, on par with the €100 million Real Madrid paid for Gareth Bale in 2013. 

Alvaro Morata's late goal puts Juventus into Coppa Italia semis

Pogba, 21, has been at Juventus since 2012 after arriving from Manchester United. He has scored eight goals in 26 games this season. 

Pogba drew attention while playing for France at the World Cup in Brazil. He scored one goal, had one assist and completed 80 percent of his passes, earning him the World Cup Young Player Award
