Paul Pogba has revealed he had “no motive” to leave Juventus during the summer transfer period despite the reported interest of Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.
The France international has heavily linked with a move away from the Serie A giants during the summer, however, nothing materialised.
Pogba has not ruled out making a move in the future, but says he is currently happy to remain in Turin.
“Why would I not stay? I didn’t have any motive to go, it wasn’t the right time,” Pogba is quoted as saying by The Mirror.
“It was never clear that I would leave and there’s no reason I can’t continue here for longer, let’s see.”
Barcelona are also rumoured to be interested in Pogba, and it has ben reported that the former Manchester United man favours a move to the La Liga over the Premier League.
Manchester City are said to be keen on a move for Pogba, however, Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta last week claimed that it may take a bid of €100 for the Italian club to allow the star midfielder to leave.
Pogba’s departure from Juventus looks inevitable, but it remains to be seen just when the 22-year-old will make the move.
