PSG: We don't want Pogba

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has claimed that his club don't want to sign Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.

Paris Saint-Germain had been seen as one of the leading candidates to launch a summer bid for Juventus star Paul Pogba, but club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi insists he isn't interested.

While Juventus are determined to keep French international Pogba after a fantastic season in Serie A, it is suspected that the Bianconeri wouldn't be able to resist a bumper offer.

Talks with Pogba over a contract extension have been slow and the player's agent Mino Raiola has hinted that there will be no agreement ahead of the World Cup in case Pogba's value grows.

In recent weeks there have been rumours that PSG are lining up a £50m bid for Pogba, but lately Real Madrid and Barcelona have emerged as the frontrunners to sign him although there are links with Chelsea and Manchester City.

It now appears that PSG aren't likely to enter a bidding war as president Al-Khelaifi denied any plans to sign Pogba.

"We've never spoken about Pogba," Al-Khelaifi claimed in an interview quoted by Italian website Tuttomercatoweb. "He is a great player but he doesn't do it for us.

"Our squad has improved from last year, especially in their style of play. We will work to get better still."

PSG have retained the Ligue 1 title but the season won't be seen as a success having been beaten by Chelsea in the Champions League quarter-finals.
