With Chelsea heavily linked with a move for Paul Pogba in the summer, Juventus’ director Giuseppe Marotta has admitted that his side rejected approaches for the midfielder over the summer.
The former Manchester United youngster is one of European football’s hottest prospects, and has been linked with a number of Europe’s top clubs including Chelsea and Man City.
Both English clubs seemed intent on signing Pogba this summer, bit both failed as the French international remained in Serie A, where he has seen his importance in the team grow following the departures of a number of a number of senior players.
And with his growing importance, Marotta feels that the 22 year old will be staying in Turin for the foreseeable future:
“We received formal proposals from top clubs for Pogba, but we rejected them out of hand.
“This season we put more responsibility on his shoulders, so he has many more games to improve.”
