Mino Raiola, the agent of Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, has confirmed his client is unlikely to agree to a move away from the Serie A giants this summer with Chelsea understood to be interested in securing his services.

Jose Mourinho has already made some moves in the summer transfer market by bringing in Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona and edging closer to a deal for Atletico Madrid frontman Diego Costa.

However, it has been reported that Mourinho is eager to secure a deal for Pogba, who he sees as the right man to drive the Blues forward from a deeper midfield role.

The Stamford Bridge outfit will have to shell out a fee in the region of £75million to tempt The Old Lady into a sale.

Raiola insists that while his client is away on international duty for France at the World Cup that no transfers will be discussed.

Raiola said: “We have decided not to speak of the transfer market with regards to Paul until after the World Cup. But I can calmly say that his future will still be at Juventus, where he feels very happy.”

Pogba has established himself as a key part of the Juventus squad since joining on a free transfer from Manchester United in 2012.

The announcement by Raiola will please officials at the Serie A club along with boss Antonio Conte, who is keen to see the ambitious 21-year-old sign an extended deal.
