Juventus boss Max Allegri is confident Paul Pogba will stay with “one of the top four teams in Europe”.

The French star is being talked about as the first £100m footballer with former club Manchester United and Champions League winners Real Madrid vying for signature.

But with Pogba’s agent cooling the talks recently, Allegri has warned his star man that he should turn his back on the Old Lady of Turin.

“I am calm about the English rumours,” Allegri tells Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Anyone who has the opportunity to leave Juventus has to consider things very carefully, because right now Juve are among the top four European clubs.”

Pogba, who was instrumental in France’s run to the Euro 2016 final, played 48 times in all competitions last season to guide Juve to a Serie A and Coppa Italia double.

The Italian champions have also boosted the squad by acquiring midfielder Miralem Pjanic, right back Dani Alves and Morocco defender Medhi Benatia during the close season.

The Italian adds: “This is not a selling club that just lets its players go. Pogba belongs to Juve and at the end of the day he too will want to win another Scudetto and hopefully the Champions League.

“We have grown in terms of appeal and awareness of our own capabilities.

“So far our market this summer has been eight out of 10, bringing in players of international pedigree like Medhi Benatia, Dani Alves and Miralem Pjanic.”
