Juventus rule out Dybala and Pogba sales

Juventus director general Guiseppe Marotta is adamant that the club will not be selling stars Paul Pogba and Paulo Dybala, while he also expects manager Massimiliano Allegri to stay put.

Dybala has proved to be a revelation after joining from Palermo in the off-season and has recently been linked with a move to Barcelona.

Pogba, meanwhile, has consistently linked with a move away from Juve for several seasons, with Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea all said to be interested in the midfielder.

“Juventus are in a position where we can reject all approaches for Paulo – and we have already done that,” Marotta said.

“He will become even better when he gains more experience, but he is already a top player right now. Selling him is not even an option for Juventus.

“And the same goes for Pogba. He is an important player for us. We want to keep winning in Italy and also make an impact in Europe.”

Allegri has recently been linked with the Chelsea job as a replacement for Guus Hiddink at the end of the season, but Marotta insists the manager is going nowhere.

“There are many reasons why we want Allegri to remain in charge for many more years,” he added. “He is a great leader and Juventus are a great club. It is never easy to find someone that important and his cycle at Juventus is not over yet.

“His winning cycle can still continue and I think that is what he wants as well.”
