Paris Saint-Germain defender David Luiz has urged Juventus star Paul Pogba to snub a move to the Premier League in order to join the Ligue 1 champions, reports the Daily Mail. 

Pogba is a wanted man after yet another fine season with The Old Lady, and his consistent performances for both club and country have attracted interest from some European heavyweights.

Chelsea and Manchester City have been linked with signing Pogba in recent months, with all of them prepared to spend big in order to lure him away from Turin.

Juventus Losing Stars

Despite the strong interest, Juventus are desperate to keep hold of the 22-year-old, but are willing to sell if any club matches their asking price of around £70million.

Juve are wary that they could end up losing several stars this summer despite winning the Serie A for a fourth consecutive season and despite making it to the Champions League final.

It could be a busy summer for Juventus, but they would love to keep hold of their rising French star who has become one of the world's best midfielders after leaving England.

Pogba left United after falling out with Sir Alex Ferguson due to the lack of first-team football, but since then, he's won three league titles and has developed into a powerhouse star who could be on the verge of a £70m move.

David Luiz Speaks

One potential option for Pogba is a return to his homeland of France and defender David Luiz is desperate to see him play for PSG next season.

Speaking in a recent interview, Luiz admitted that he would love to have Pogba at the club after hearing great things from team-mate Blaise Matuidi.

"I hope that Pogba will come," Luiz said.

"It will be fantastic for us. Blaise told me that he is not only a great player but also a great guy."

Luiz chose PSG after leaving Chelsea last summer in a deal worth £50m, making him the world's most expensive defender.
