Man United transfers: No agreement to sell Paul Pogba, says Juve legend
Pavel Nedved rubbishes reports that Manchester United have struck a deal to sign Paul Pogba
Juventus haven’t agreed a deal to sell Paul Pogba to Manchester United in the summer, Pavel Nedved has insisted.
The 21-year-old playmaker has emerged as one of the brightest prospects in European football since moving to Serie A from the Red Devils back in 2012.
If later on he asks to leave, then we’ll talk
Pogba has been linked with a big-money move back to Old Trafford in recent months, with Premier League leaders Chelsea also credited with an interest in the highly-rated France international.
The midfielder’s agent Mino Raiola suggested that Pogba will leave the Serie A champions within the next two years in a recent media interview in Italy.
However, Juventus coach Nedved stressed that former United star is under contract and won’t be leaving the north London club in the near future.
“I keep hearing it’s almost certain that Pogba will leave Juventus at the end of the season,” Nedved told Avvenire.
“Those words are premature, because he’s still under contract. Paul is 21-years-old, and he has everything he needs to become an absolutely top class player.
“If later on he asks to leave, then we’ll talk.”
Pogba has scored six goals and has made one assist in 19 Serie A appearances this season.
The French star quit Old Trafford for Juventus in 2013 after he failed to earn a first-team spot under Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Juve midfielder has won two successive Serie A titles since his move to the Turin outfit two-and-a-half seasons ago.
