Juve respond to links with French stars

Serie A champions Juventus have responded to the reports linking the club with French midfield duo Paul Pogba and Adrien Rabiot.

Pogba admitted last weekend that it could be time for a new challenge, fuelling the speculation that he could leave, while Rabiot is expected to leave Paris Saint-Germain after rejecting a new deal.

The Old Lady has been touted as possible destinations for the French midfielders, and Juve sporting director Fabio Paratici insist both players 'very good;.

"They are very good players," Paratici said, according to Sky Sports.

"Pogba plays for Manchester United, we love him a lot of course because he played here for several years.

"He grew here a lot and became world champion, so he certainly gave us a lot but he is a player of Manchester United."

He added,"We're interested in Adrien Rabiot and we made our move as other clubs. We'll see what will happen"
