Juventus star Paul Pogba won't be moving away from the club in January, according to his agent Mino Raiola.

The Frenchman has been heavily linked with a move away from Turin with several clubs interested in signing him, but it has been confirmed that there will be no movement midway through the season.

Chelsea Snub and Future Plans

Pogba was linked with a move to Chelsea over the summer, with the Premier League champions having an official bid accepted by the Serie A side only for the midfielder to snub the contract offered by Roman Abramovich.

Juve and Chelsea had done dealings before so their relationship was at a high, but after speaking to the English outfit, Pogba decided to stay put in Italy and admitted that he had no reason to join Jose Mourinho's side.

Despite snubbing a move in the summer, it's still widely expected that Pogba will leave Juve in the near-future, but Raiola has confirmed that it won't be in January.

Chelsea, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are believed to be the main interested parties in Pogba, with the La Liga giants favourite to land him once their transfer embargo has been lifted.

Barca is Pogba's dream move and it's believed they will wait until next summer to strike a deal with the Italian champions, and that could be why Raiola has ruled out any chance of a move in January.

Agent Confirms No Move

Speaking about his client's future, the agent admitted that a transfer in the new year is not an option.

Raiola said: "Pogba is no longer a surprise," reported talkSPORT via Mediaset.

"He's not a youngster just being discovered. A player with his talent is known to everybody. There have been offers for him, and they're still there.

"Last summer he decided to stay another year at Juve, and he kept his word. We're not preoccupied with thoughts of his future, we're thinking about that.

"Paul is a lad who decides with his heart, and at the moment he's focused on Juventus. I can categorically rule out a move in January.

"In the future we'll see, we'll talk at the end of July."
