Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has praised teammate Paul Pogba for the impact that he has made at the club.

The 21-year-old Frenchman joined the Bianconeri from Manchester United in 2012 and has become a key player as they look to win a third consecutive Serie A title.

He has been constantly linked with a move away from the club this summer, but Buffon is hopeful that he will stay in Turin.

"Paul is an undeniable talent, a natural talent, a force of nature, he is a guy who has surprised everyone, that has exploded, not even in a lot of time," Buffon told Sky Sport Italia.

"Within two months, two-and-a-half months we had already figured out his talent, the player we were talking about. Then, evaluating in an economic time like this, at these particular moments, one can have so many considerations.

"But I also say that the directors at Juventus, together with the President, have always made very prudent decisions and have hardly put a step wrong. That will again be the case this time."

Pogba has appeared 31 times in the league this season, scoring six goals in the process.
