Agent says Pogba will assess Juventus future in summer

The agent of Paul Pogba says he'll assess his Juventus in the summer.

The midfielder is being urged by Juve to open talks about a new deal.

"Right now the guy is just thinking about playing, to focus on the championship fight and on winning the Europa League," agent Mino Raiola told Tuttosport.

"It means a lot to retain the Scudetto, but also to lift a Cup at the Juventus Stadium in mid-May. The Europa League is snubbed by most in Italy, but by mistake.

"Pogba is bursting with motivation. He wants to win everything with Juventus, from here to the end of the season.

"And then he will go into the World Cup with France - an amazing achievement for a phenomenal guy who a year ago had just won the World Championship at Under-20 level."

Raiola was prompted for comment on interest from other clubs in Pogba.

"Nothing in the pot is boiling. Until after Brazil we will not move a leaf. We have decided to postpone any type of negotiation until after.

"Pogba wants to play a great World Cup, and for this he must think only of the field in the next three-and-a-half months. Pogba is in a great moment in Turin. And there is not any kind of problem with Juventus. He is pleased with Juve, just as everyone at Juve is happy with Pogba.

"Paul still has a long contract in Turin until 2016. There is no rush, no urgency. Even so, for now, Pogba will not leave. For now, he does not want to go away, then if one day a crazy offer arrived for him and for Juve, well, it would be assessed together.

"That is to say - a crazy bid from Real Madrid, rather than another top European club. We will evaluate everything after the World Cup, in due course - any offers from other clubs, as well as any proposals for the renewal of the contract at Juventus.

"So, it is true that I am not dealing with anyone in Turin or elsewhere. Everything is postponed, Juventus knows this.

"I repeat - there are no problems of any kind."
