It doesn't take a genius to work out that Paul Pogba will be leaving Juventus sooner rather than later. 

Where he will end up however, is a more difficult thing to envisage. A return to the Premier League has often been touted, be it with his former club Manchester United, or seeking a fresh and exciting challenge with Manchester City or Arsenal. 

However, it is also no secret that Pogba has attracted admiring glances from some of Europe's other heavyweights, like Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Barcelona. 

Indeed, since Barcelona's transfer ban has been lifted, the speculation over an enormous £80m deal has intensified greatly and, now that Pogba's conversation with Lionel Messi at the Ballon d'Or ceremony has been revealed, the rumours aren't likely to slow down anytime soon. 

According to Mundo Deportivo, Pogba was speaking to Lionel Messi and allegedly said: "I love to play with you at the club".

Of course, it's unconfirmed and easily could be wide of the mark, but Mundo also report that Pogba was impressed with Barcelona's dominant display against Juventus in last season's Champions League final. They say he has no interest in returning to the Premier League and that the Nou Camp is the Frenchman's dream destination. 

You can't really blame him, though; who wouldn't want to play with Neymar, Suarez and Messi?
