Chelsea and Man City blow as Italian giants rule out superstar exit

Chelsea and Manchester City have been dealt a blow after Juventus chief Giuseppe Moratta came out to rule out the sale of Paul Pogba, Daily Star reports.

The 23-year-old has also been linked with Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona, as well as former club Manchester United ahead of the upcoming summer window.

However, Moratta has reassured everyone that the highly rated midfielder is undergoing contract talks and will not be leaving Italy.

”Pogba is a Juventus player and still has an ongoing contract with us,” he said.

“Plus he has also told us about his intention to stay with us. All the conditions are there for him to continue with Juventus for the upcoming years.

“The Juventus jersey is something you honour right until the end. It is not a foregone conclusion yet that he will stay at Juventus, because nothing is ever guaranteed in football, but it is highly likely that he will stay put.”

He is tied down on a deal with the Serie A giants until at least 2019 and has become a key member for the squad following his free transfer from United back in 2012.

The France international has already won the league title three consecutive times since his arrival and is in line to win it again this season.

Juve are currently top of the table, three points ahead of second place Napoli, with only eight matches left to be played.

Pogba has already featured 41 times in all competitions for his side this term, so far scoring eight goals while providing another 11 assists.
