Paul Pogba: Juventus midfielder focused on playing

Paul Pogba: Juventus midfielder focused on playing

The former Manchester United man is currently negotiating a contract renewal, but is being linked with French big-spenders Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco, as well as a move back to the Red Devils.

But Pogba is thinking only of playing after Juve reached the Europa League semi-final this week following a 3-1 aggregate victory over Lyon.

He told Mediaset: "I am not thinking about that, as I am focused only on the pitch.

"Juventus want to keep me at all costs? That makes me happy. I am thinking only about doing well on the field, then we'll see."

Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta has rubbished speculation of a possible summer move for the player, insisting the Serie A side want to keep the French midfielder.

He told the Italian press: "The rumours about Pogba's move to PSG are groundless. We want to keep Paul and extend his deal.

"It's true that 70 million euros will be a really good sum (for a player like Pogba), but Juventus are a club who aim always to get to the top, to win trophies.

"In the past there have been similar sacrifices, but this is not the case. And anyway today, we haven't concrete offers, so there is nothing to talk about."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
