Paul Pogba has brought an end to speculation linking him with moves to Chelsea and Manchester United by signing a new five-year contract at Juventus.
The former United midfielder has also been heavily linked with moves to European heavyweights Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain but has committed his future to the Bianconeri, extending his stay at the Serie A champions until 2019.
The 21-year-old is now regarded as one of the best young midfielders in world football after leaving United for Turin in 2012, after a difference in opinion regarding his first team role with Sir Alex Ferguson.
Under David Moyes, United considered the possibility of bringing the France international back to the club while Jose Mourinho has previously been vocal in his admiration for player.
But speaking to shareholders on Friday, Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta confirmed the player is remaining where he is.
"This morning we agreed the renewal of Paul Pogba, who will be tied to Juventus until 2019."
Pogba, who has won back-to-back Serie A titles since leaving Manchester, continued his rise to prominence during the World Cup with France. Mourinho's praise for the midfielder after his performances in Brazil fuelled speculation the Portuguese coach was keen to add him to his squad at Stamford Bridge.
"I would say Pogba has been the best young player [in the tournament], because he had a good World Cup despite the fact his team didn't reach the last four," Mourinho said in July.
"I think he showed that he is a big player for the next World Cup."
Pogba has made 97 appearances for Juventus since arriving in Italy, scoring 15 goals while laying on 18 assists for his teammates.
Earlier this week the Frenchman's agent Mino Raiola confirmed talks between his client and the club were nearing completion.
"Yes, we met with Giuseppe Marotta and together we decided to renew Paul's deal," Raiola told Tuttosport.
"Now is the time to get it done, we're delighted that this situation has presented itself."
