Pogba dismisses speculation

Paul Pogba has dismissed speculation about his future once again, reiterating that he is happy at Juventus.

Pogba was also quick to deny reports in France that Zinedine Zidane has called him personally to persuade him to move to Real Madrid.

Pogba though - who is yet to agree a new deal with Juventus - has insisted that he does not think about speculation which has also seen him linked to the likes of Paris Saint Germain, Monaco and his former club Manchester United.

"Valued at €70million? I don't think about the market, I only care about playing. I never thought or talked about a transfer with any other club," he told La Stampa.

"I have a contract with Juventus, so what are we talking about? I want to continue to win here.

"I also dream of the World Cup, I don't know about our chances but I have faith in the French team."

He denied having any contact with Zidane and added: "There was never a phone call.

"And I never said I wanted to play for Real Madrid. I said Real Madrid and Manchester United are big clubs, like Juventus."

Juventus have made it clear they want to keep Pogba, who joined them from Manchester United in 2012 and has since emerged as one of the best young midfielders in world football.
