It had been claimed that Bianconeri have been doing their utmost to persuade the 20-year-old to commit himself beyond 2016 – but the midfielder insists otherwise
Paul Pogba says that he has not spoken to anyone about his future or signing a new contract at Juventus.
It has been reported that the Italian champions are desperate for the in-demand midfielder to extend his current deal in Turin, which runs until 2016, with speculation rife that Paris Saint-Germain are ready to launch a massive bid for the France international this summer.
However, Pogba says he is simply enjoying his time with the Old Lady and is touched by the fans’ desire to see him remain at Juventus Stadium.
“It makes me happy that the fans sing, ‘Don’t sell Pogba’,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “It gives me so much of a charge when I go onto the field.
“At the moment, though, I’m concentrated solely on the present. I’ve not spoken with anyone, neither about my future or my contract.”
Pogba was being interviewed after underlining his worth to Juve by netting the decisive goal in a 1-0 win over Bologna that put Antonio Conte’s men within two victories of retaining their Serie A title.
The 20-year-old admitted that he does not feel that he is currently being utilised in the best possible way but insists that he is willing to do whatever he is asked in order to help the Bianconeri make it three Scudetti in a row.
“On the pitch, I’m not totally playing in the position I prefer, but anywhere I play, I think only of giving 100 per cent,” he insisted.
“Along with my team-mates, I want to win this Scudetto with all my strength. We are close now, so we must continue in this way.”
