Pogba will consider offers after World Cup - but no problem with Juventus, says agent

Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba will decide on his future only after the World Cup in Brazil, according to his agent Mino Raiola.

The agent of Paul Pogba has insisted that he will not consider any offers for the Juventus midfielder until after the 2014 World Cup finals in the summer.

The 21-year-old has been in impressive form for the Italian champions since joining them on a free transfer in the summer of 2012.

Pogba failed to impress then Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson during his time at Old Trafford, but has emerged into one of the best young players in the world under Juve coach Antonio Conte.

Last season, the France international made 18 starts and nine substitute appearances in Serie A, while this campaign he has already garnered 25 starts in the Italian top flight.

Pogba’s performances in midfield, which helped Juve win the Scudetto in 2012-13, have not gone unnoticed in the rest of Europe, with Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain reported to be keen admirers of the youngster.

Man United are also said to be interested in luring back the former Le Havre youngster, while their Premier League rivals Chelsea are rumoured to be monitoring his progress in Turin as well.

However, Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, insists that he and his client are not thinking about the future at the moment.

“Nothing in the pot is boiling,” he told Tuttosport. “Until after Brazil we will not move a leaf. We have decided to postpone any type of negotiation until after.

“Pogba wants to play a great World Cup, and for this he must think only of the field in the next three-and-a-half months. Pogba is in a great moment in Turin. And there is not any kind of problem with Juventus. He is pleased with Juve, just as everyone at Juve is happy with Pogba.

“Paul still has a long contract in Turin until 2016. There is no rush, no urgency. Even so, for now, Pogba will not leave. For now, he does not want to go away, then if one day a crazy offer arrived for him and for Juve, well, it would be assessed together.

“That is to say - a crazy bid from Real Madrid, rather than another top European club. We will evaluate everything after the World Cup, in due course - any offers from other clubs, as well as any proposals for the renewal of the contract at Juventus.

“So, it is true that I am not dealing with anyone in Turin or elsewhere. Everything is postponed, Juventus knows this. I repeat - there are no problems of any kind.”
