Paul Pogba confirms Juventus stay

Juventus power-house Paul Pogba has confirmed that his plans are to stay on at the club, rather than make a big-money move away this summer.

The Frenchman has been linked with a big-move away from Serie A at the end of the season, with the likes of; Paris Saint Germain, Real Madrid, Manchester City and former-club Manchester United all interested in signing him.

The central-midfielder has been superb for Juve throughout the season, and his partnership with Arturo Vidal has blossomed into one of the best midfield's in European football, with Andrea Pirlo sitting just behind them.

A string of fine performances started speculation that he could be on his way after the season ended with some of Europe's biggest, most illustrious clubs interested in his signature, but after initially snubbing a Manchester United reunion, he has followed up by confirming his plans to stay.

Pogba was at Old Trafford under Sir Alex Ferguson, but after a major fall-out with the manager and the club's officials, the Frenchman left the club in order to join Juventus, where he has gone on to become one of football's hottest properties.

The 21-year-old revealed in a recent interview that he was left feeling 'disrespected and embarrassed' by United after they made him train by himself and refused to give him first-team opportunities, and that eventually lead him to leaving the club and moving to Italy.

This season has seen Pogba pick up his second Serie A winners medal after Juve strolled to their third consecutive title, and in a recent interview, he admitted that his plans are to stay on with the club and a transfer away has never crossed his mind.

He told La Stampa: "I've never thought or spoken about leaving Juventus, my future is here.

"Where will I go? I'm here, right? I've got a contract with Juventus [until 2016], so what are we talking about?"

It's believed that Pogba is worth around £40million, and with some of Europe's biggest spenders interested in him, that price-tag would not put them off signing the Frenchman, but his resilience to stay on at the club, may be a stumbling block.

The 21-year-old is set to star for France in this Summer's World Cup in Brazil, and if he continues to perform like he has done throughout the season, more interest will be shown in his services.
