'Juve, take Klopp & Pogba!'

Claudio Marchisio has urged Juventus to pull out all the stops for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Manchester United’s Paul Pogba.

Klopp’s Liverpool finished Premier League runners-up with 97 points and will face Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League Final next month.

“I’d like a Coach that I believe can’t be had: Jurgen Klopp,” Marchisio told Tuttosport.

“I’m crazy about his game and I like his way of playing football. He would do very well in Italian football.

“But if Allegri stayed, I wouldn’t see anything wrong with it because he’s a Coach who always wins and that’s no small feat.”

The Bianconeri old boy was then asked about reports Paulo Dybala could be sold, as well as Inter striker Mauro Icardi.

“I think the world of Paulo,” added the Zenit St Petersburg midfielder.

“I really hope he won’t be sold. It would be a mistake because only a few players have his ability.

“Icardi is like Trezeguet, his instinct is out of the ordinary but just like David he really relies on his team.

“He and Dybala would make an amazing pairing. Mauro could adapt to Juventus and their style.”

Finally, the 33-year-old commented on Pogba’s potential return to Turin.

“It’s difficult... let’s see: I was very impressed by De Jong, but he’s gone now. I’d love to see De Bruyne or Hazard in Italy, but it seems difficult.

“Therefore, I say Pogba. Paul’s return would be great, also because Juventus need a midfielder to give more impetus to their attack.

“Frankly, I didn’t understand his decision to go Manchester, where he had already been: I understand the money, but if he was thinking about the next step of his career then I would’ve chosen Spain.”
