Paulo Dybala has told Marca that after speaking to Juventus star Paul Pogba, he believes the Frenchman will stay in Turin this summer despite interest from elsewhere.

Pogba is currently one of the world's hottest prospects, and it was reported only yesterday by Spanish paper AS that Manchester United had made a world record bid of £97.5 million for their former midfielder.

Real Madrid have also been heavily linked with a move for Pogba, with coach Zinedine Zidane said to be keen to bring his compatriot to the Santiago Bernabeu.

His form has also caused whispers about his own future, but he also moved to rule out a switch from the Bianconeri, telling Marca that  "The fans love me in Turin, I am happy here and I'm not thinking about anything else."

Dybala has made three appearances for Argentina, and he has been included in their preliminary squad for the Olympic games in Rio this summer.
