Since his rise to one of the best midfielders in the game at the tender age of 19, Juventus' Paul Pogba has been linked to almost every top club in the world, including Chelsea. But as much as we'd love for it to happen, a transfer for the 23-year-old player yet to come to fruition, either due to the ridiculous amounts of money involved (€100m+), or simply because Pogba himself doesn't want to leave Juve.

In most recent developments, Barcelona star Neymar revealed his wish to play alongside Pogba at the Catalan club.  But Pogba remains unswayed.

"It's nice that such a great player shows appreciation for me. Everyone wants to play with the champions, but I'm happy to stay at Juventus and I'm focused on the title. I have no transfer temptations, the Scudetto is the only thing in my head."

Juventus are six points ahead of second-place Napoli with only six games to go in the Serie A this season. The Old Lady getting their fifth consecutive Scudetto certainly won't be anywhere near as hard as convincing Pogba to leave the perennial Italian league champions and Champions League regulars to reunite with former manager and mentor Antonio Conte at the Stamford Bridge.
