Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has pledged his future to the Serie A club after renewed links with Paris Saint Germain, Chelsea and Real Madrid.

The 20-year-old is being tracked by clubs from all over Europe, even more so since Juventus president Andrea Agnelli admitted his club would be hard pushed to turn down a lucrative offer for the France international.

Such a bid may be somewhere in the region of €50 million, a substantial profit for a player they took on a free transfer from Manchester United little over a year ago, yet an affordable price for some of Europe's most heavily bankrolled clubs.

PSG belong in that bracket, but Pogba is not going to be drawn on a rumoured return to his Ile-de-France roots.

"I don't know anything about PSG," he told Le Parisien. "Like I've said, I'm happy with Juve. I'm not concerned that Juve have spoken about selling me, but when I'm with the France national team I only think about doing well with my country. When I get back to Turin, I'll devote myself to Juve."

Pogba still has two-and-a-half years left to run on a contract which was drawn up before his emergence as a key player for the Bianconeri's. Although he is not one of the club's biggest earners, that could be about to change.

"We haven't spoken about my contract yet," Pogba said. "All I think about is football, [my agent] Mino Raiola takes care of the rest."
