Paratici stated”Cristiano is a very simple person and an excellent professional, he has all our support,”

The Juventus sporting director ruled out a return of French World Cup winner Pogba, who played for the Turin side from 2012 to 2016.

The 26-year-old Pogba has been told he will not captain United again after reportedly falling out with United manager Jose Mourinho.

“We love him very much,” said Paratici.

“We want him to do well since we are close to him but he isn’t a Juve player anymore. ”

“We’re connected to him, but we’ve never thought about it and we’re not going to think about it.”

Pogba joined United from Juventus for a then world record fee of £89 million in 2016.

Paratici, 46, also denied a motion for Lazio’s Serbian midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, saying: “He’s a great player, but we haven’t spoken to him or Lazio”.

Paratici is set to have more responsibility within Juventus after the departure of general manager Giuseppe Marotta.

“Up to now I was happy with my position but things will now probably change a little.

“My goal will always stay the same, to make Juve as strong as possible. I want to dedicate the award I won today to Mr. Marotta who was like a father to me.”
