Bianconeri have no interest in selling talented Frenchman.
Juventus director general Beppe Marotta has told any interested parties that midfield ace Paul Pogba is not for sale.
Reports this week have suggested that Arsenal were set to step up their interest in the former Manchester United star, with a bid in the region of €23.5m being touted.
While that offer was never confirmed by either club, Marotta has delivered a warning to any side hoping to take the Frenchman away from Serie A, stating that he has no interest in even listening to offers for the 20-year-old.
“Forget about Pogba,” he is quoted as saying in Tuttosport as reported by Football Italia.
“We do not have the slightest intention of listening to any offer which may arrive for our midfielder.”
Pogba moved to Turin last summer after his contract at Old Trafford expired, and proved himself to be an important part of the squad after scoring six goals in all competitions and generally impressing with his performances.
After lifting the Under-20 World Cup this past summer, the talented youngster is set to be given a place in coach Antonio Conte’s starting line-up to begin the season after it was announced that Claudio Marchisio would be missing for a month due to injury.
That in turn has further dampened any hopes that the likes of Arsenal had in signing the midfielder, who has consistently suggested he would like to remain at Juve for years to come having been given the opportunity to play regularly.
As well as dismissing transfer speculation suggesting that he may leave Italy, it is understood that the Bianconeri are keen on offering him a new deal, with his current contract running until 2016.
