Beppe Marotta commented yesterday on there being ‘no issue’ with Paul Pogba’s contract and indeed no talks this week planned with his agent.
The Frenchman’s representative Mino Raiola was a guest at Juventus Stadium last night for the Europa League semi-final second leg, prompting speculation that discussions were to be held this week over the 21-year-old’s future, with it seen split between a new contract in Turin and a move to one of Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain or Chelsea.
However, for the club’s director general, Pogba is not up for discussion until at least the end of the season.
“As we have always said Pogba is one of our players and a contractual issue does not exist. I do not think that there is any kind of problem,” Marotta told Mediaset before yesterday’s draw.
“Is he bulletproof [sic] then? That is a strong word for him like it is for others [but] there are all the indications that he will continue on with us.
“Raiola [was] at the stadium because these days there are so many representatives in football and he is one of the guests. We have a great relationship.
“We will not speak of Pogba, there is no case with Pogba and at the end of the season we are going to review the contract. Pogba is important for his quality.”
