Paul Pogba insists he is happy at Juventus, but confirmed there have yet to be any talks regarding a new contract.

Reports in Italy have claimed that the Italian champions are ready to offer Pogba a new deal following his impressive performances for the club.

However, Juventus president Andrea Agnelli also raised a question mark over the midfielder's future by conceding the club would find it difficult to refuse a "massive offer" for the France international.

Pogba is currently on international duty and is not worrying about his club situation, but outlined he is happy at Juventus.

"Now, I'm with my national team and I only think about doing good things here," Pogba told reporters at France's national team base ahead of Tuesday's game against Finland. "Then, when I come back to Juve, I will think of Juve.

Pogba added: "We have not spoken yet about my deal. I'm happy at Juve and I do things in a good way. My agent Mino Raiola thinks about the rest, I only think about football."

Juve defender Giorgio Chiellini also added that the 20-year-old would already have departed the club if he wanted to leave earlier this year.

"As far as Pogba is concerned, Juventus has already proved this summer that they didn't want to sell him," he said. "There were many teams which wanted and needed to spend money: we have seen in the last days of the transfer market that there were teams which wanted to spend such an amount of money.

"This means they have a huge budget and don't know how to spend it and sometimes they even pay a player more than they wanted to. Therefore Pogba could be one of the most suitable players, but Juventus clearly said he wouldn't leave the team and he didn't leave."
