Chelsea transfers: Paul Pogba’s agent delivers update on future
Paul Pogba's agent Mino Raiola says the midfielder hasn't 'definitely' decided to leave Juventus next summer
Paul Pogba hasn’t decided to definitely leave Juventus next summer, according to the Chelsea target’s agent.
The France international was linked with a host of top European club in the most recent summer transfer window, although a big-money move failed to materialise.
Why not [stay at Juventus]? We turned down several teams last year, we’re looking for the right moment
Pogba, who took over the No10 shirt from Carlos Tevez at the start of the season, has already been linked with La Liga champions Barcelona this season, whilst Chelsea and Manchester City are thought to be interested.
However, the Juventus midfielder’s outspoken agent Mino Raiola insisted 22-year-old Pogba wouldn’t consider leaving the Serie A champions unless the moment is right.
“In the end there were three big clubs with €85 million on the table, or a little more including add-ons, which took the total to €100 million, but a deal was not concluded because Pogba didn’t want to leave and Juventus wanted him to stay for at least another year,” Raiola is quoted as saying by Goal.com.
“Why not [stay at Juventus]? We turned down several teams last year, we’re looking for the right moment.
“This means that Pogba has not yet decided to definitely leave at the end of the season.”
Pogba made an assist as Juventus came from behind to draw 1-1 with Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
The France international has made two goals in four appearances in Europe’s premier club competition this season.
The Chelsea and City target has also scored two goals in 11 Serie A games.
