Marotta: 'Pogba value immense'

Juventus director Beppe Marotta assured Paul Pogba’s value “is immense and he’ll stay with us for many years.”

The general manager spoke to Sky Sport Italia ahead of today’s Serie A game with Fiorentina.

After reports this week PSG offered €70m for the French midfielder, Marotta was asked how much Pogba is worth.

“His value is immense. We are happy to have him and did not discuss him with anyone. This is his natural habitat and he’ll stay with us for many years.”

Andrea Pirlo is suspended today, so Marotta was questioned on potential replacements in future.

“Our football is global, so players are not tied down to one specific role. There is the option to change system and adapt players like Claudio Marchisio to positions that they are not naturals in.

“Juventus are always looking for eclectic players.”

The Bianconeri have many starlets out on loan, including Fausto Rossi whose goal allowed Real Valladolid to beat Barcelona on Saturday.

“Rossi’s case is emblematic of our football, as to make his mark he had to go to Spain. He was out on loan to several Serie B clubs and never settled. It means certain homegrown resources could be used better in Serie A.”
