Juventus chief Fabio Paratici has quelled down speculations linking his side with a move for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Recent comments by the Frenchman’s agent Mino Raiola claiming his client his unhappy at Old Trafford has seen him linked with a return back to Turin.

But Paratici has poured cold water on the rumours and claims his side would not be able to afford the 27-year-old despite their love for the player.

“That is not the right question, I think it’d be rather costly,” Juventus director Fabio Paratici told Sport Mediaset of Paul Pogba on Tuesday.

“We love him very much, we know he is a great player, but right now he is at Manchester United.”
