AS cites a report from Gazzetta dello Sport that says Madrid will sign Luis Suarez from Liverpool, leaving Benzema out of favour at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Juve hope to exploit the potential arrival of Suarez by swooping for Benzema, but only if in-demand midfielder Pogba is sold first.

Pogba has attracted attention from the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and while the Serie A champions want to hold on to the France international, a big-money offer would force their hand.

But Juve would use the Pogba money to beef up their strike force, which already contains Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente.

Should Suarez move to Madrid then Benzema could be made available, although Juve are also considering Diego Costa, as well as a move of their own for Suarez.

Mirko Vucinic will be made available by Juventus, who could alternatively approach Mario Mandzukic or Robin van Persie.
