Paul Pogba takes on Massimo Allegri in training ground challenge

Paul Pogba is fast becoming everyones favourite player as he continues to excel in Italy with Serie 'A' champions Juventus.

The talented midfielder's frequent match-winning performances have prompted praise from right around the continent, and resulted in speculation linking him with a move away from Turin.

A host of Europe's most illustrious clubs - including Manchester United, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain - have been credited with an interest in signing him.

However, those admirers might want to reconsider their plans to pursue Pogba's signature after watching this video of the 21-year-old taking on Juve boss Massimo Allegri in a long shot challenge at the end of training on Thursday.

The rules of the game are very simple and require each player to shoot towards miniature goals with the intention of hitting the back of the net without the ball bouncing - a skill that the France international needs to work on further, judging by the footage uploaded to the club's official YouTube channel.

Allegri puts the box-to-box playmaker in his place with a humbling 5-2 victory, even if he's guilty of bending the rules slightly in his favour in order to ensure he successfully sees off the challenge from one of his star players.

Pogba was smart enough to realise early on that he faced an uphill battle beating the Italian tactician, suggesting to one of the onlookers off camera: "I can't win. I can't win. He's the boss!"

Still, it's a nice clip that shows a softer side to one of the most highly-rated young players on the planet. He'll just be hoping this latest defeat doesn't deter his growing list of suitors from firming up their interest in the future.
