Juventus are prepared to reject offers of up to £80m to keep Paul Pogba at the club in the summer, according to Giuseppe Marotta.

The France international has been heavily linked with a return to the Premier League amid interest from his former club United and current leaders Chelsea.

Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola fuelled the transfer speculation in January after he suggested that Pogba didn’t have a long-term future at the Serie A champions.

However, Juventus general director Marotta is adamant that the former United midfielder will be staying at the Turin outfit beyond the summer transfer window.

“There are clubs that are ready to spend 70 to 80 million euros for Pogba,” Marotta told Radio Deejay.

“There are many suitors for Pogba, but we do not want to open negotiations and we want him to stay with us.

“If we want to increase our level, we need players of great quality and Pogba is one of them.”

Pogba, who is contracted with the Italian club until 2019, has scored six goals and has made two assists in 21 Serie A appearances for Juve this season.

The rising France star left Manchester United for Juventus in July 2012 after he failed to earn a regular first-team spot under Sir Alex Ferguson.
