Paul Pogba may stay at Juventus past this summer despite the serious interest mounting across Europe, according to his agent.

The Frenchman is a wanted man with several giants all fighting for his signature, and with numerous reports suggesting he'll be out at the end of the season, a transfer bidding was is expected to arise over the summer.


Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have all been linked at one point with signing Pogba, who has developed into one of Europe's hottest talents during his time at Juventus.

The French international left Manchester United as a teenager after falling out with Sir Alex Ferguson due to difference of opinions, and chose to join the Serie A side on a free transfer. Since then, Pogba has won numerous league titles in Italy and has become one of the best midfielders in the world.


However, due to the financial powers elsewhere across Europe, reports were suggesting that Pogba would be on his way out of Turin eventually, with most people suggesting it could be as soon as this summer.

Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea have all been linked with launching mega-£74 million moves for the 21-year-old, but the latest developments could stall any potential deal. According to Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, staying in Italy is still an option for the Frenchman despite the mounting interest from elsewhere.

He told French newspaper Le Parisien: "Everyone thinks that Paul will leave Juventus this summer but that is not certain. It all depends on the will of Juve and of Paul. If it's time to leave, then he'll leave."


As well as being asked about Pogba's future, Raiola was then questioned by the French media whether or not a move to France could be on the cards, with PSG interested, and the agent refused to rule a move out despite the smaller reputation Ligue 1 has.

He added: "No, Ligue 1 is not too small for Paul Pogba. For Paul, all the big clubs are interesting regardless of which championship they play in.

"We respect the Spanish championship, the French championship, England, Italy and Germany."

So Pogba's future is certainly still unclear, but come the Summer, he will have a whole host of clubs to choose from if he does eventually decide to quit Juventus.
