Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal have been dealt a blow in their alleged pursuit of Paul Pogba after the Juventus midfielder's agent ruled out any possibility of a summer transfer.
Posting from his Twitter account, Mino Raiola moved quickly to quash recent rumours regarding his client's future by insisting that Pogba is content in Turin and has no plans to leave the Serie 'A' champions.
The France international has been the subject of intense speculation in recent months after turning heads with a series of scintillating performances in Antonio Conte's side.
TalkSPORT reports that Manchester United are keen to re-sign the 21-year-old, two years after quitting Old Trafford after growing frustrated by his lack of first-team opportunities under Sir Alex Ferguson.
Now under the stewardship of Louis van Gaal, the Red Devils held aspirations of bringing Pogba back to his old club, but those ambitions no longer appear feasible.
Jose Mourinho has also been mooted as a huge admirer of the Frenchman, and had hoped to lure him to Stamford Bridge to fill the void left by recently departed Chelsea legend Frank Lampard.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is a fan of the Juventus man too, but would've been unlikely to meet the player's valuation meaning a move to the Emirates always sounded far-fetched, even before Raiola's recent comments.
"My player, Paul Pogba, is happy at the club. He is not going anywhere," he tweeted emphatically. "Do not believe the media reports."
