Pogba's future is still up the air. Juventus are fighting to keep him or if they have to, sell him at an exorbitant price to willing bidders, with Real Madrid and Manchester United leading the chasing pack. Pogba was at United until 2012.

Speaking at the Espys, an ESPN awards ceremony, in los Angeles, Pogba was in typical buoyant form and laughed off questions about Messi and Ronaldo, the Ballon d'Or, and his uncertain future: "Manchester United was my first family. If Mourinho calls me? I don't know, for now I'm a Juve player and I'm happy. I don't know what's going to happen", he said.

The Juve player also affirmed that he'd give the Ballon d'Or to Cristiano Ronaldo, praising the club blanco: "It's the White House, you know, they won the Champions league this season. It's a great club", but insisted that he's happy in Turin: "This is my team, my family, where I'm playing and where I'm happy".
