Juventus have denied that star midfielder Paul Pogba will leave the club after Manchester United were linked with a mega money move for their former man.
Pogba left Old Trafford in 2012 after apparently growing unhappy with a lack of game time at the club despite his age and inexperience.
But rumours have persisted ever since Pogba’s departure that United would look to bring back the midfielder given his emergence as a world class footballer in Italy and his prominence at the 2014 World Cup where he was named the best young player of the tournament.
Should Pogba return to United, it appears he would cost a fortune and force the club to break their transfer record once more but Juventus are set on keeping one of their key players.
“Every European club is watching him and been in contact,” Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta said.
“However, we want to have a strong team made up of champions. We have an important player in Pogba and we don’t have a need to sell him.”
Pogba’s agent, the infamous Mino Raiola, well-known for moving his players around for financial reasons didn’t confirm whether Pogba would stay or go.
“He is one of the most expensive players on the market,” Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola told RAI. “Considering his age, he has room for improvement and he is among the best.”
