French football journalist Julien Laurens has downplayed recent reports which have seen Manchester United and France midfielder Paul Pogba linked with a move to Inter this Summer.

Reports in the media in recent weeks have suggested that Inter could make a move for Pogba in the upcoming Summer transfer window but Laurens, who works for French newspaper Le Parisien, believes that the 2018 World Cup winner is out of reach for the Nerazzurri.

“I’m not buying this at all,” Laurens said in relation to the circulating rumours during an interview with broadcaster ESPN.

“Although, the reunion between himself and Conte – who was an influence on his career at Juve – could be an idea, there’s no way Inter will go for him. I don’t think Inter will be able to afford him anyway.”

Pogba has also drawn links to Paris Saint Germain, Real Madrid and Juventus in recent weeks and a report today has suggested that his value has plummeted as a result of all that is going on in the world at the moment.

This season Pogba has barely played as a result of serious injury. He has appeared just eight times for Manchester United and in 610 minutes on the field the 27-year-old has provided two assists for his teammates.
