Juventus are not looking to sell Paul Pogba to Manchester United at the end of the season, according to club hero Pavel Nedved.
The France international has been heavily linked with a return to the club he ditched as a youth player just over two years ago of late, with a £75m move having been mooted ahead of the looming summer window.
Pogba has emerged as one of the best midfielders in Europe since relocating to Turin, winning two Serie A titles and earning a regular spot in Les Bleus’ senior set-up.
Although there have been suggestions that United are confident of landing their former youngster, Nedved says that, as it stands, there’s no chance of him leaving:
“I keep hearing it’s almost certain that Pogba will leave Juventus at the end of the season,” he is quoted by talkSPORT.
“Those words are premature, because he’s still under contract. Paul is 21-years-old, and he has everything he needs to become an absolutely top class player.
“If later on he asks to leave, then we’ll talk.”
Pogba left United during Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign after growing frustrated at a lack of playing time under the iconic Scot.
Chelsea are another side to have been linked with the 21-year-old.
