Juventus officially speak on Paul Pogba link


This is the first time in recent times an authority in the Italian Serie A outfit Juventus will be making a claim on the speculated interest in Man United player, Paul Pogba.

The French midfielder has consistently been linked with a move back to Turin and the speculations were awakened as soon as Andrea Pirlo was named the new manager of the team as it is believed he wants to work with Paul Pogba as he plans to rebuild the team.

However, Juventus’ Sporting Director, Fabio Paratici has reacted to the speculations by stating that Paul Pogba is currently a Red Devils player and that has to be respected.

He stressed that they are currently not considering the option of the World Cup winner for a return to Turin after he left the club in 2016.

Fabio Pratici did not rule out the possibility of the move for Paul Pogba but there cannot be talks at the moment until the summer at the earliest.

He told Sky Sports that Paul Pogba is loved at Turin because he gave the club a lot before he left but they have to respect the fact that he is a player at Man United.

“When it comes to Pogba, right now, he is a Manchester United player and it’s far too early to think about future transfer targets. We all care for Pogba here, he’s one of many ex-players who gave Juve so much. He’s a great player for sure but it’s too early to talk about future objectives”

Meanwhile, the former Juventus midfielder has a running contract with the Red Devils at Old Trafford until 2022 after the option of a year extension was recently triggered to end speculations of a move to Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid which was fuelled by the World Cup winner.
