Paul Pogba says that Arsenal, Chelsea and AC Milan were chasing his signature but Juventus was the only option for him.

Paul Pogba has revealed that he turned down offers from Arsenal, Chelsea and AC Milan in order to secure a dream move to Juventus.

The French international moved to Turin last summer after running down his contract at Manchester United.

"Juventus? I've liked them ever since I was a kid, always supported them," he told Sky Sport Italia. "This club means so much to the French. The best French players have played here and that is why I liked it.

"Were there other clubs chasing me? Yes, but I had my mind only on Juventus.

"At the time I heard of interest from Arsenal and Chelsea, and in Italy AC Milan, but there is no-one like Juve. I'm glad to be here. I want to win as many trophies as I can in this shirt."

The 20-year-old enjoyed a stellar opening season in Serie A, which earned him a first international cap in March.
