Paul Pogba latest: Juventus deny rift between Giuseppe Marotta and Mino Raiola


Juventus have denied that general director Giuseppe Marotta criticised Paul Pogba's agent Mino Raiola's over the possible transfer of the Frenchman to Barcelona.

On Friday, Mundo Deportivo quoted Marotta as saying that if Barcelona or Chelsea want to make a move for the player, they have to make contact with Juventus and not with the player's agent.

In reality, the quotes are from March, when Marotta made it clear that the Serie A champions own the sports rights of the player and they will take a final decision over his future.

"His sports rights are with Juventus only, so it is Juventus who will decide," Marotta said in March.

"However, the decision of the player is definitely critical. But, beyond this, we're speaking about a boy who is 21-years-old, he is very young, I think he can grow from game-to-game."

The 22-year-old continues to be one of the main targets for Barcelona but also for Chelsea who are ready to strengthen their midfield ahead of the new campaign.
