Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri isn't concerned about interest from Manchester United in Paul Pogba
Manchester United target Paul Pogba is happy to stay at Juventus, according to the Serie A club’s manage Massimiliano Allegri.
The France international has been touted as a target for a number of top European clubs in recent weeks after helping Juve to win a league and cup double this season.
I’ve talked with Pogba and he’s told me he is happy to stay in Turin
Unsurprisingly, there has been plenty of reported interest from the Premier League, including Chelsea, Manchester City and the athletic midfielder’s former club, United.
However, Juve boss Allegri lifted the lid on his talks with the 22-year-old playmaker, adding that the Champions League runners-up are under no pressure to sell their prized asset.
“Juventus don’t need to sell Pogba. However it also depends on what the player wants,” Allegri told Sky Sports Italia.
“I’ve talked with Pogba and he’s told me he is happy to stay in Turin. He is young – I think he needs to remain with Juventus in order to grow.
“At a club like Juventus is easier to do it. His career is still very long. Besides, Juventus is as good as the other big European clubs.”
Pogba scored eight goals and made three assists in 26 Serie A appearances last season.
The France international opted not to sign a new Red Devils deal and move to Juventus from United in a £800,000 switch in 2012.
Pogba made just seven appearances in all competitions for the 13-time Premier League champions during his two-year stay.
