Cape Town - Juventus chairman Beppe Marotta says the club is not concerned about a meeting between Paris Saint-Germain and Paul Pogba, insisting the midfielder is not for sale.

The French playmaker is one of the most sought-after players in world football and recently met up with PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi in Monaco.

However, Moratta says Juve are more flattered than concerned by the meeting, but reitirated the club has no plans to sell Pogba.

"I think that it's a display of admiration for one of our players and we're honoured by it," Marotta told Sky Sport Italia.

"It just goes to show that the decision we took several years ago [in signing Pogba] was the right one and a rewarding one, not only for what he's done on the field, but for the admiration he enjoys from other clubs.

"But it doesn't mean we want to put him on the market. His meeting was probably just a casual meeting in which they spoke about football. Certainly it was not down to us wanting to sell Pogba."
