    Pogba may not leave Juventus: Agent


    PAUL Pogba may stay put at Juventus despite talks about the French midfielder's possible move to England or Spain, his agent Mino Raiola has said.

    The 23-year-old, who played a pivotal role in France's run to the Euro 2016 final, has been strongly linked with a return to English Premier League club Manchester United, with Champions League winners Real Madrid also eyeing him.

    However, a fee touted to be around a world-record £100 million (S$177 million) could see Real priced out of a move for Pogba, according to British media reports.

    "There is a lot of talk about Paul's future but maybe he will not leave Juventus," Raiola told The Times.

    "He is in no rush to leave and Juventus do not want him to go. They want him to renew his contract."

    Pogba's contract at Juventus runs until 2019. Raiola has worked closely with United during the close season as he wrapped up deals for his clients - midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan and striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
