Paul Pogba: 'I never wanted to leave Juventus'

Paul Pogba insists that he never intended to leave Juventus in the summer transfer window.

Paul Pogba has claimed that he never had any intention of leaving Juventus in the summer transfer window.

The French midfielder was repeatedly linked with both Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain before the close of the window, while reports have suggested that the 22-year-old is keen on a switch to Barcelona in the future.

However, Pogba insists that he is content with his role as a key player for the Italian champions.

"Why would I not stay? I didn't have any motive to go, it wasn't the right time," he told reporters.

"It was never clear that I would leave and there's no reason I can't continue here for longer, let's see."

Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta has previously suggested that Pogba could cost a club around £72m.
