Paris Saint-Germain say they have not spoken to highly rated Juve star Paul Pogba.

Paris Saint-Germain owner Nasser Al Khelaifi has confirmed his club have not spoken to Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, amid speculation the French giants have bid for the youngster.

The former Manchester United man has become the subject of much transfer speculation over the last few months, having been linked with moves to the likes of Real Madrid, Chelsea and Arsenal.

Pogba left Manchester United for Juventus under the helm of Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2012, having supposedly signed for the club months before his contract with the Old Trafford club came to an end.

The midfielder has scored 11 goals in 56 appearances for the Italian outfit and has also played eight times for France, making him one of Europe’s most highly rated young players.

His talent has seen him attract the attention of several big clubs, but PSG owner Nasser Al Khelaifi has claimed the club have not spoken with Pogba.

"Pogba? We have not spoken with him," he told Sport Mediaset.

"Only at the end of the season will we evaluate everything."

Al Khelaifi was speaking after PSG were knocked out of the Champions League by Chelsea on Tuesday night. The French big-spenders were defeated 2-0 at Stamford Bridge by Jose Mourinho’s men, meaning they were eliminated from the tournament on away goals. The Paris outfit beat Chelsea 3-1 at Parc des Princes a week ago, but saw Chelsea pull back the tie to 3-3 last night.

Recent years have seen PSG sign the likes of Edinson Cavani from Napoli for £55m, as well as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Marco Verratti for more than £100m. January also saw them snatch Yohan Cabaye from Newcastle United for a fee of around £20m.

PSG are sure to continue their expensive transfer activity this summer as they throw all finances available at becoming the dominant force in European football. Don't rule out a bid for Pogba just yet,
