Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has existed in transfer speculation for awhile, but the skilled Frenchman has remained in Turin regardless.
Last October, Pogba put much doubt to rest by signing an extension with Juve through the 2018-19 season.
His agent, Mino Raiola, recently opened up about the transfer plans of the 21-year-old, which could be executed at any instant. However, Pogba is not interested in leaving at this point, despite a rumor from a French publication that stated PSG had agreed to his transfer.

Raiola notes that his client’s temperament is truly what matters.
Translated from TuttoSport.com:
“We made a pact with Juve: Paul doesn’t have to leave…He is wanted by seven clubs and that is certain, because they all told me so. The ones that can afford him are Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea. If I just whistled, I’d sell Pogba tomorrow to PSG or City in a heartbeat. But Paul did not tell me to find him another club.
“What are his chances of staying? As of today it’s 99 percent. Juve agree with our approach, which is that they will only sell if Paul asks to leave and there’s a suitable offer….Real wanted him 18 months ago, but I didn’t like the attitude Madrid had with me. Juve asked for about 50 million euros and Real told me it was a ridiculous sum. Even Carlo Ancelotti told me that and he adores Pogba.”
The Zebras will battle Sassuolo tomorrow and attempt to extend an eight-point advantage at the top of the Serie A standings.
