Man United transfers: Juve chief discusses Paul Pogba future

Juve chief Giuseppe Marotta discusses Paul Pogba's future

Giuseppe Marotta has laughed off Carlo Ancelotti’s claim that Real Madrid aren’t interested in Paul Pogba.

The Juventus midfielder has been linked with a host of Europe’s top clubs in recent months amid growing reports that the Serie A side may be willing to cash in on the France star.

Premier League duo Chelsea and Manchester United have been touted as potential suitors, even though the Red Devils allowed 21-year-old Pogba to leave the club in 2013.

Real Madrid were thought to be weighing up a bid for the Juve star, and the Serie A outfit’s general manager Marotta discussed Los Blancos’ potential interest.

“Ancelotti asked me some questions about Pogba,” Giuseppe Marotta is quoted as saying by London24.

“He says he’s not interested? Well, that’s a white lie.

“I’m sure he has his reasons to say it’s not true.”

The Juve midfielder helped the Turin side beat Verona 4-0 last weekend, scoring a third-minute opener.

Pogba has been in impressive form for the Serie A champions, scoring five goals and making one assist in 16 top-flight games.

The France star has netted a total of 21 goals in 110 appearances since moving to Juve, winning back-to-back Italian top-flight titles.
