thumbnail Hello,

The Frenchman’s representative has dismissed suggestions by Juve’s general manager Beppe Marotta that discussions had started over a new deal

Paul Pogba’s agent has stated that no contract talks with Juventus are underway, despite general manager Beppe Marotta claiming a renewal was close.

Pogba, who joined the Turin club on a free from Manchester United in 2012, is currently tied to the Bianconeri until 2016 but reportedly drew interest from several of Europe’s top clubs this summer.

And now it would seem that Marotta’s remarks that "talks to renew Pogba’s contract are underway" are wide of the mark.

"There has not been and there is no meeting with Juventus," Pogba’s agent told L’Equipe.

"We can repeat, however, that for now, Paul is fine in Turin."

The 21-year-old was one of the mainstays in Juve's title winning team last season, making 36 appearances in Serie A, before going on to feature in each of France’s five World Cup games under Didier Deschamps.
