thumbnail Hello,

Mino Raiola has ruled out any transfer while France remain in the World Cup, but he feels the 21-year-old's immediate future will be with the Serie A champions

The agent of Paul Pogba has claimed his client is unlikely to leave Juventus ahead of the 2014-15 season despite Chelsea's interest in the midfielder.

Goal understands the Blues have prepared a lucrative package to entice the French youngster to Stamford Bridge, though they would have to fork out at least £60 million for him to be allowed to leave Turin.

But Mino Raiola has insisted that while Les Bleus remain in the World Cup no transfers will be discussed, though a move from the Serie A champions does not seem likely.

"We have decided not to speak of the transfer market with regards to Paul until after the World Cup," he told Rai Sport.

"But I can calmly say that his future will still be at Juventus, where he feels very happy."

Chelsea have already signed Cesc Fabregas, but with Jose Mourinho keen to play the Spaniard in an advanced role behind the striker, Pogba is seen as someone who can drive the team forward from a deeper position.

The 2013-14 Champions League semi-finalists had hoped the former Manchester United trainee would be open to a return to the Premier League, though Juventus had previously outlined their determination for him to stay.

And this latest development will please the hierachy at La Vecchia Signora, who are hopeful the 21-year-old will sign a new contract with Antonio Conte's side.
