Pogba, who joined the club from Manchester United in July 2012 after not signing a new contract at Old Trafford, has been linked with several European clubs, and speaking to La Repubblica, says he always had the ambition to play for two clubs in particular.

"I don't hide that when I was a child I was dreaming to play with Arsenal or Barcelona," Pogba said. "I feel good at Juve. And now I dream of playing with the French national team against my brothers.

"For me, Juve is [Zinedine] Zidane, [David] Trezeguet, [Pavel] Nedved - talent, class, discipline and a sense of the team.

"As for me, I know that promising is not enough. I started from the bottom, I know there is a way, and I have the will to arrive. I am in no hurry, but I want to put my talent into action."

Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has admitted that the club are looking at Pogba, telling Le Parisien: "He is a Parisien. He is a great player that represents the future of France. It will not be this winter, maybe next summer."
