“So far I have not spoken to anyone about the contract renewal with the club nor the future on the market,” Pogba said.

“I am focused on the field, I am thinking only about this season and winning a Scudetto which for the club would be historic.

“And then there is also the Europa League. If we achieve the double then it would be something exceptional. I just think about making history this season.

“I just have to repeat myself. Of course I am happy that many big clubs are interested, but the mind is focused on my present work, and that’s it. It is Juve today.

“The fans’ chants asking me to stay? They encourage me to do my best, they are beautiful.

“Paris Saint-Germain? They are a great club.”

Pogba, 21, is currently contracted to Juventus until June 2016.
