Chelsea transfers: Paul Pogba will not leave Juventus in January, says agent

Paul Pogba won't be leaving Juventus in the January transfer window, insists Chelsea target's agent

Paul Pogba won’t leave Juventus in the January transfer window despite reported interest from Chelsea, according to the midfielder’s agent.

The France international has been one of Juve’s standout performers this season after having scored one goal and made three assists in 18 appearances in all competitions.

Paul is a lad who decides with his heart, and at the moment he’s focused on Juventus. I can categorically rule out a move in January

Mino Raiola

Pogba has unsurprisingly been linked with a move to Chelsea and Manchester United in recent months, whilst Barcelona and Bayern Munich are also thought to be monitoring the playmaker.

However, the Frenchman’s outspoken agent Mino Raiola insists Pogba is happy to concentrate on the defending Serie A champions.

“Pogba is no longer a surprise,” Raiola is quoted as saying by talkSPORT.

“He’s not a youngster just being discovered. A player with his talent is known to everybody. There have been offers for him, and they’re still there.

“Last summer he decided to stay another year at Juve, and he kept his word. We’re not preoccupied with thoughts of his future, we’re thinking about that.

“Paul is a lad who decides with his heart, and at the moment he’s focused on Juventus. I can categorically rule out a move in January.

“In the future we’ll see, we’ll talk at the end of July.”

Pogba has scored 22 times in 102 Serie A appearances for the Italian champions since his move to Turin.

The France midfielder has won three Serie A titles, the Coppa Italia and three Italian Super Cups since he joined Juventus from United.
