The Italian has insisted it is not a foregone conclusion the France midfielder will be quitting Serie A for England.

United are confident they can land Pogba for a reputed world-record fee of £105million.

Allegri, however, feels the Old Lady’s own reputation in the game cannot be so easily dismissed.

And Juve’s own executives have continued to make it clear they have received no approach so far for the talented 23-year-old.

Allegri said: “I am calm about the English rumours. Anyone who has the opportunity to leave Juventus has to consider things very carefully, because right now Juve are among the top four clubs.

“Pogba belongs to Juve and at the end of the day he too will want to win another Scudetto and, hopefully, the Champions League.”

He added: “We have grown in terms of our appeal and awareness of our own capabilities.

“So far our market this summer has been eight out of 10, bringing in players of international pedigree like Medhi Benatia, Dani Alves and Miralem Pjanic.”

Pogba is currently holidaying in Miami and his agent Mino Raiola has hinted his man could yet stay in Turin where an improved contract is up for discussion.
