Juventus' Paul Pogba has dealt a huge blow to Chelsea's hopes of signing the midfielder after he revealed he could stay at the Italian club for the foreseeable future.

The French star was a high profile target for the Stamford Bridge club and Barcelona throughout the summer, but remained in Turin. 

Reports suggested the 22-year-old could make a move to the Blues in January, but the former Manchester United man has claimed he is happy with life in Italy.

As per the Mail, Pogba was speaking to French television station Telefoot and he said: "It was not the right time for me to go, and I could very well remain at Juventus. Right now, I'm still happy to be there. We will finish the season and then we'll see again.

"Has a Barca deal been struck in January? I don't know, for now I'm at Juventus and I'm focused only on them because we haven't started well. As for the rest, we'll see."

Having left Old Trafford in 2012, due to a lack of first-team football, Pogba has gone on to become one of the most sought after players in world football. 

He was an integral part of the Juventus team that claimed a domestic double and reached the final of last season's Champions League. 

Chelsea had eyed up Pogba as the ideal solution to their midfield concerns, at the start of this season, but could not get a deal over the line before the window closed and it was reported he rejected the chance to move on deadline day.

With clubs who possess financial power such as Chelsea and Barcelona circling the midfielder it will be interesting to see how long Juventus can keep hold of their star asset. 

Will Paul Pogba make the move to Chelsea in the future or will he join Barcelona? Could he even stay at Juventus? Have your say below!
