Juve’s Pogba relaxed over new deal
Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba insists that he is not concerning himself with a new contract as he wants to focus on winning trophies.
The former Manchester United youngster has two-and-a-half years remaining on his current deal in Turin, but reports have regularly linked him with a move away having established himself as a key part of Antonio Conte’s side.
The 20-year-old’s Juventus team-mate, Arturo Vidal, has recently penned a new deal with the Italian champions, bringing an end to months of speculation, although Pogba says that it is not something he is worrying about.
"I don’t think about it, I will remain focused on this season to win something again," he told Italian newspaper, Tuttosport.
"Winning the third Scudetto in a row for Juventus would be a historic success."
However, Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is confident that Pogba will follow in Vidal’s footsteps and sign a new contract.
"You will see soon that he will also renew," he told Tuttosport.
"If a player who has as many offers as Arturo decides to tie himself to Juventus for such a long time, it’s a very clear signal and it means that there is an important and solid project here.
"There is a conviction among the most important players in the squad that in the future we can achieve the same great results as in recent years."
