Incoming Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola may have to forget about buying Paul Pogba this summer after a Juventus director insisted the midfielder was unlikely to leave.

Bringing the former Manchester United player to the Etihad is believed to be one of Guardiola's top priorities this summer but Juventus director general Giuseppe Marotta insists Pogba wants to stay in Turin.

"Pogba is a Juventus player and still has an ongoing contract with us," said Marotta.

"Plus he has also told us about his intention to stay with us. All the conditions are there for him to continue with Juventus for the upcoming years.

"The Juventus jersey is something you honour right until the end. It is not a foregone conclusion yet that he will stay at Juventus, because nothing is ever guaranteed in football, but it is highly likely that he will stay."

Pogba has been a key player for Juventus since arriving in 2012, winning three successive Serie A titles and reaching the Champions League final with the Italian giants.
