Reports on Sunday morning claimed that Juventus are interested in signing Manchester City forward Stevan Jovetic, but would have to let Pogba move to the Etihad Stadium to secure a deal.

The France international's former club Manchester United have also been linked with a bid to bring the midfielder back to Old Trafford in the summer.

However, Marotta is adamant that, while he will listen to any proposals, he has no intention of allowing Pogba to leave Juventus.

"We would listen with courtesy to possible offers, but the answer will always be negative," Marotta told Sky Italia.

"Juve is between the most important sides and it's not the case to imagine any sales."

Veteran midfielder Pirlo has also been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Chelsea and Tottenham reported to be interested.

Pirlo stated on Saturday that he anticipates signing a new deal and Marotta foresees no problems in reaching an agreement.

Marotta added: "We have always showed optimism for Pirlo, due to the fact the player feels good with us and I think his permanence at Juve is expected.

"We will look at the details in the future."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
