Juventus' general manager Beppe Marotta has claimed that his side rejected offers for Arsenal target Paul Pogba over the summer.

Pogba, who left Manchester United after disagreeing with Sir Alex Ferguson's decision not to give him consistent first-team action, has been sensational at Juventus, subsequently attracting the attention of a host of top clubs.

Arsenal were thought to be the frontrunners in terms of teams bidding for his services, and it's now been revealed that there was in fact bids made for Pogba- although it wasn't confirmed from which sides.

Pogba's agent, who recently claimed his client was better than Gareth Bale, is attempting to secure an improved contract for the Frenchman that would completely rule out any potential move.

Howeve Marotta had confirmed that the Serie A champions did have to turn down offers from rival clubs in the summer, and that even they were surprised with how effective Pogba has been since joining the club.

"His explosion was somewhat unexpected, even if there were signs at Manchester United two years ago," said the Juventus general manager.

"Antonio Conte has been able to get the best out of him. Yes, we did turn down important offers for Pogba.

"We had signed a contract with him promising to revisit it when he became a star. Right now he deserves a raise."
