Paul Pogba releases statement expressing love for Juventus

Published Add your comment

Juventus star Paul Pogba has paid an emotional tribute to The Old Lady which suggests he's committed to the club and has no plans on leaving in the near future.

The Frenchman has been strongly linked with a move away from the Serie A champions, with the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and Barcelona all interested in signing him, but in a recent statement, he's revealed his true love for the Turin-based club.

Pogba's career

Pogba moved to Juve after failing to break into Manchester United's first-team, and since then, he's developed into one of the world's best midfielders, winning countless trophies in Italy.

United lost the French international on a free transfer in 2012 when he decided to leave the club after his contract expired, and he quickly earned a move to Juventus where he's gone on to win numerous Serie A titles.

It was well documented that Pogba could have left the Italian giants over the summer, with Premier League champions Chelsea having a bid accepted.

However, the player himself rejected a move to Stamford Bridge and stated he had no desire to leave Juve and didn't see the need to join Chelsea, much to the annoyance of Jose Mourinho.

Since the summer, reports have returned that Pogba could be on his way to the Nou Camp in January, with a pre-contract reportedly agreed too.

Once again however, his agent has moved quickly to dismiss those claims and has confirmed that no deal is in place with the La Liga giants.

Agent confirms no deal

Mino Raiola said: "We said no to several teams, and continue to move forward, judging the moment.

"We can't say that Pogba will leave after this season, he could stay another year at Juventus.

"We don't have a pre-agreement with anyone."

"When the right project comes along at the right time for everyone then we could leave, but an agreement has to be reached with Juventus first.

"His value? You'd have to ask Juventus, they've always said that they won't even talk about it for less than €100m (£71m).

"Maybe this year they'd ask for more, but it depends on the transfer market, which has been influenced by Financial Fair Play in recent years."

Despite that, speculation has still grown around Pogba, but he's finally put it all to bed for now by releasing a formal statement expressing his love and commitment for the Italian club.

Pogba statement

“Juve are the first team where I started to play,” Pogba said.

“They’re the team who allowed me to go to the national team, the team where I scored my first goal, so now they’re the club of my heart.

“They let me prove myself in football, and had the confidence in me to put me on the pitch.

“How much do I love Juve out of 10? 10! Since I’ve been here, I’ve always given my best for the club, for the shirt, for everything. I play at 100 per cent. Always.”
