Despite only leaving Old Trafford for Juventus last year, the 20-year-old has been heavily linked with Arsenal over the course of the past few months, with Arsene Wenger belied to be a huge admirer of the enforcer.
But, the Frenchman says that he is content in Turin, ending any speculation that he could make a shock return:
“I’m good at Juventus but I want to focus only on the World Cup.” He is quoted by Sky Sports via Le Parisien.
“On my future I have no news, so of course I will stay at Juventus.”
Pogba only managed seven first-team appearances for United before leaving in search of regular action, much to the annoyance of them boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
Since moving to Italy, the midfield anchorman has impressed, forcing himself into the first-team set-up while helping Juve claim a second successive Serie A title.
Despite being seen as a key part of the champions’ future plans, rumours suggesting that he could return to England have been persistent.
Arsenal were thought to be in the chase, with Wenger seeing him as the ideal man to add steel and resilience to his midfield, while contributing to their core philosophy of attractive passing football.
Is it a shame that Paul Pogba won’t be returning to the Premier League?
