Juventus president Andrea Agnelli admits that the club would find it hard to refuse a "massive" offer for star midfielder Paul Pogba.

The Frenchman has impressed for the Bianconeri since joining from Manchester United in 2012 but the Juve supremo fears that Italian football's lack of economic competition could mean them losing the 20-year-old.

"If we got a massive offer for Pogba, will we be able to retain him? I don't think so, we have not got the economic strength," said Agnelli at the Leaders in Football conference at Stamford Bridge.

"We can be attractive but I don't think we have the economic strength to fight against the others and retain such a player.

"Italy is no longer a final destination, it's a transition destination.

"Italy needs to come into some serious reforms as at the moment we are in no-man's land. We have to reform the stadiums because that's where the shows are made."
