New Stones bid rejected


Marotta 'not aware' of Zidane call

Juventus general manager Beppe Marotta has said he is not aware of any call from Real Madrid's Zinedine Zidane to Paul Pogba.

Speculation about the 21-year-old France international's future continues to mount, even though he still has two years to run on his contract in Turin.

Reports in Spain have suggested that Zidane, Carlo Ancelotti's assistant at Real, had been in contact with Pogba about a move to the La Liga giants.

But Marotta told Sky Sport Italia: "I am not aware of this phone call taking place, nor am I aware of there being any interest from Real Madrid.

"Our player is focused on finishing the season with Juventus, and then he will turn his thoughts to the World Cup."

Pogba has also been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain -- although Marotta stressed that it would take a huge bid for his club to even consider negotiating.

"You all know how much was paid for [Gareth] Bale," he said. "We have the fortune of being able to decide Pogba's future for ourselves. He's a lad who's maturing well, and we're delighted to have him."
