Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta says the runaway Serie A leaders have no need to sell French midfield ace Paul Pogba this summer.

Paris St Germain have become the latest club to be linked with a big-money move for Pogba, with the 22-year-old former Manchester United youngster also linked with a possible return to England.

However, Marotta has dismissed talk of approaches having already been made for Pogba, who is currently sidelined by a thigh injury, as he told Sky Sport Italia: “Pogba is a young player with lots of promise, he is realising his potential.

“We want to win and we don’t necessarily have to sell our best players. It is clear that players of this quality attract interest from other clubs, but we don’t seek buyers and there has been no contact.

“Our main objective is to reposition ourselves amongst the main clubs in Europe.

“To have reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League is a great success and one that shows the work of the club, coach and players is paying off.”

In the absence of Pogba, Juve defeated Genoa 1-0 on Sunday to strengthen their grip on the Serie A title race, with the Bianconeri looking to secure a fourth consecutive Italian top-flight crown.

Meanwhile, Italy can be backed at 13.00 to win Euro 2016, with holders Spain 7.50 and World Cup winners Germany 4.00.
