Juventus chief Agnelli indicates Pogba is untouchable

Bianconeri chief Andrea Agnelli has compared the midfielder to a World Heritage Site and added that Antonio Conte's future in Turin is a certainty.
Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has indicated that midfielder Paul Pogba is untouchable and that his future lies in Turin.

The Frenchman, who joined the Bianconeri on a free transfer from Manchester United in 2012, has been linked with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain with a new contract in Turin yet to materialize.

With his current deal set to run out in June 2016 and talks with the player reported to be rumbling on, however, Agnelli is confident that the reigning Scudetto holders can fend off interest in the highly rated 20-year-old.

"Pogba is one of Juve's World Heritage Sites," he told gathered media at a UNESCO event. "He enjoys the attention of other big clubs but Juventus are already looking towards his future."

The Juve chief almost hailed the relationship he has with coach Antonio Conte and says that the two have a clear idea of what lies ahead in the Serie A leaders' future.

"My relationship with Conte is extremely healthy," Agnelli added. "Antonio shares the same dreams of where we want to take the club."

Juve currently boasts a comfortable 11-point lead in the Italian top tier, although second-place Roma has a game in hand. Juve also sits in the last 16 of the Europa League and has been drawn against Fiorentina.
