Paul Pogba has been one of the most favorable player among the competitions of the wealthiest European club, and Juventus are ready to resist big offers for their star in this summer. The France international has been a big hit since leaving Manchester United as a free agent and arrived at Juventus in 2012. It is reported that a host of Europe’s top clubs are interested in trying to pull him away from Serie A league.
Giuseppe Marotta, the club’s general director has revealed that the Turin giants have no interest in selling their prized asset. “There are clubs that are ready to spend 70 to 80 million euros for Pogba,” said Marotta to Italian radio station Radio Deejay. “There are many suitors for Pogba, but we do not want to open negotiations and we want to stay with us,” he added.
The midfielder star has been strongly linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season, while several top clubs like Chelsea, Manchester City, Barcelona, and Real Madrid are also reportedly keen to acquire his services.
Pogba is one of the Juventus’ great players and he is needed to increase the club’s level. The 22-year-old France has scored seven goals and set up two more in 22 league appearances to help Juventus remain on course for their fourth successive position. And currently, Pogba is under contract with the Turin club until June 2019. He only signed a new five-year contract in October with the Serie A champions, but he has been continually linked with €60 million move away from Turin.
Marotta is quite confident that Pogba will not leave the club in this summer, because “he is given no sign that he wants to go away.” However, he cannot do anything when a player is offered a contract that can be two or three times higher than what he’s currently earning. The general director admitted that he is talking about a net “€10 million salary per season.” If any clubs can offer higher contract, Juventus cannot do anything more to make Pogba stay.
Meanwhile, Marotta revelead that Juventus are keeping a close eye on Palermo’s striker, Paulo Dybala. He has been impressive this season for the Sicilian outfit, scoring 12 goals while providing seven assists in 27 league games. Furthermore Marotta said that Juventus is “looking to see what is out there in order to form a strong attacking line.”
