Arsenal transfers: Paul Pogba wants to stay at Juventus
Arsenal transfers: Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba says he is happy at the Serie A champions amid interest from Arsenal
Paul Pogba insists he is happy at Juventus despite reports linking him with a return to the Premier League.
The France international has established himself as a first-team regular at the Turin outfit, scoring five goals in 27 appearances in Juve’s title-winning campaign.
Pogba left Manchester United last summer following a frustrating spell at the club which saw the midfielder fail to break into the starting line-up under former boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
And the 20-year-old is keen to stay at the Serie A champions amid interest from United’s rivals, Arsenal, who are looking to strengthen their midfield options this summer.
“I’m good at Juventus but I want to focus only on the World Cup,” said Pogba.
“On my future I have no news, so of course I will stay at Juventus.”
Pogba made three appearances in two seasons at Old Trafford before completing a move to Juventus in July 2012.
And last month, the playmaker revealed Ferguson warned the French youngster not to move to Serie A.
“He [Ferguson] shouted. He asked me, ‘Where are you going? You’re going to Juve in Italy, is that it? There’s a lot of racism’.
“I told him, ‘It’s not a problem, there’s racism everywhere’.
“He said, ‘The supporters aren’t like in England’ but I replied, ‘I want to play, and it’s not for the fans, it’s because I want to play to improve and gain experience.’
“He just went “OK” and after that, I was never included in the squad.”
