Paul Pogba’s agent has played down rumours linking the Juventus midfielder with move to Chelsea FC this summer.
Paul Pogba’s future at Juventus has come under immense speculations with reports linking him with a move to Chelsea. The Frenchman was recently spotted in London which further fuelled these rumours, but his agent Mino Raiola has played down these reports.
Pogba joined Juventus in 2012 as he failed to gain regular first team action at Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson decided not to succumb to his demands. Pogba took some time to settle down but gradually he made his presence felt in the midfield and last season he became a regular in the starting eleven.
Pogba’s ability to dictate the game from the midfield at such a young age stood out and he finished the season with seven goals and seven assists in 33 starts. Antonio Conte’s men went on to lift another Serie A title and Pogba established himself as one of the best young midfielders in the World.
Despite interest from a host of Eurpean clubs, Juventus were keen to extend Pogba’s current contract, which expires in 2016. But recent reports suggested that Jose Mourinho is keen to sign the French international and Chelsea are lining up a massive bid for him. The rumours were further fuelled when Pogba was recently spotted in London. But his agent Mino Raiola has rebuffed these claims stating that the midfielder will not leave Juventus this summer.
“All is perfect at Juventus and no meetings are planned, we have nothing else to say.
“The interest of Chelsea? Do you think we are dealing with the Blues just because Paul is in London? These are imaginations.” – Pogba’s agent said.
According to various media reports Arturo Vidal is close to joining Manchester United, the Italian club will be unwilling to part ways with two of their best midfielders in the same transfer window. Jose Mourinho might have to wait a bit longer to get his man.
