Arsenal and Chelsea target Paul Pogba has reiterated his commitment to Juventus, with teammate Gianluigi Buffon all but ruling out the possibility of a move back to the Premier League for the newly crowned Golden Boy.
Pogba won the award for best young player in Europe, fending off competition from Romelu Lukaku and Julian Draxler to take the accolade and the former Manchester United star said he plans to use the win as motivation to help Juventus to a third Scudetto in a row.
'I'm flattered and proud to receive this prestigious trophy,' he told Tuttosport. "Having won the league for the first time, got as far as the quarter-finals in the Champions League, won the Under-20 World Cup with France and been promoted to the first team by coach [Didier] Deschamps, 2013 really was a golden year for me.
"I just hope that 2014 is the same! One day I would like to win everything there is to win. Dreaming is not illegal. However, I'm a down-to-earth guy, and right now I want to win a third title in a row for Juventus."
Arsenal and Chelsea are both believed to be monitoring the 20 year old's situation but Juve keeper Buffon insists that he will likely sign a new deal very soon as the Italian outfit look to become a force throughout Europe again.
"Pogba? You will see soon that he will also renew [his contract]," he explained.
"If a player who has as many offers like Arturo [Vidal, who signed a new deal with the club until 2017] decides to tie himself to Juventus for such a long time, it's a very clear signal and it means that there is an important and solid project here.
"There is a conviction among the most important players in the squad that in the future we can achieve the same great results as in recent years."
The news will come as a blow to both Arsenal and Chelsea with Arsene Wenger reportedly believing the £30m-rated starlet fitted in perfectly with his policy of buying players with the potential for long-term success. The Blues will also have to look elsewhere with the side likely to boost their squad in January as they aim to topple the Gunners in the table and claim the Premier League title come the end of the season.
