Pogba has not requested a transfer, says Marotta
The Juventus director has made it clear the France international could still stay put and says they will not allow Carlos Tevez to leave this summer
Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta has insisted that Paul Pogba has not requested a transfer this summer, but has admitted there is plenty of interest in the France international.
Paris Saint-Germain have already reached an initial agreement with Juve over a transfer fee of €80m, while Barcelona have also held talks with the Serie A champions over a potential deal.
Nevertheless, Marotta is adamant that Juventus will only sell on their conditions and he remains hopeful the 22-year-old will decide to stay put.
“Pogba has not demanded a transfer,” Marotta told Rai.
“He is the best young player in the world and it is only normal that some of Europe’s biggest clubs want to sign him.
“But Juventus are a big club as well and we are not a selling club.
“Juventus have sold very few outstanding players over the years and at the moment there are no conditions for us to put Pogba out there on the transfer market.”
Marotta also had his say on the situation of Carlos Tevez amid ongoing reports that the striker is set to leave Juventus for Boca Juniors at the end of the season.
“Carlos is homesick and misses Argentina,” Marotta explained.
“But he has a contract with Juventus until June 2016. There are no conditions to terminate his contract before that date.”
Juventus claimed their fourth successive Serie A title at the weekend and Marotta is adamant they have now won the Scudetto 33 times, stressing that the titles they lost due to the Calciopoli scandal remain a stain they will not accept.
“Calciopoli remains an open wound for Juventus,” he added.
“We have won 33 Serie A titles…”
