Paul Pogba laughs off £70m move to United or Madrid

Published Add your comment

Paul Pogba looks to have put an end to the long-term race for his signature, by claiming that he wants to stay at Juventus for at least one more year.

According to French newspaper Le 10 Sport, which cites La Stampa, the Manchester United and Real Madrid target rubbished talks of a monumental £70million exit, and declared his longing to win a fourth title with his current club. The 21-year-old’s name has persistently been bandied about concerning a transfer away from Juve, and it was thought that the Turin giants would face an impossible task in keeping him on their books.

However Pogba has echoed the words of his agent in dismissing the idea of big money-move, and specifically denied claims that he has been in contact with France legend Zinedine Zidane to navigate a switch to Madrid.

“The phone call from Zidane ? I want to know where this story came from,” Pogba laughed.

“Someone saw his number displayed on my phone?

“And I never said I wanted to play for Real Madrid. Rather it is a big team like Manchester, but Juve are too."

The highly-rated 21-year-old then proceeded to deal a definitive transfer blow to potential suitors, by stating that he has never considered leaving Juventus, and is happy to continue his career at the Juventus Stadium.

“I never thought about leaving Juve, my future is here. I want a fourth Scudetto,” he continued.

"Valued at €70million? I don't think about the market, I only care about playing. I never thought or talked about a transfer with any other club.

“Where am I going? I'm here, right? I have a contract with Juve so what are we talking about?”
