Juventus shot stopper Gianluigi Buffon has voiced his admiration for Paul Pogba, describing the young Frenchman as "a true force of nature."
The midfielder has established himself as one of the brightest young players in Europe following his excellent form for the Bianconeri since his move from Manchester United.
The 21-year-old is continually being linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain, with the Ligue 1 giant reportedly willing to pay up to 70 million euros for the powerful midfielder, and while Buffon admits such a fee could prove too tempting for the club to ignore, he is eager for the player to stay at the club.
"Paul is a natural talent. There's no arguing about that. He is a true force of nature," the Juventus goalkeeper told Sky. "He has surprised everyone. He has just exploded and didn't need much time for it. We all understood within two months or so that he was a huge talent and that we were talking about a great player.
"But in a difficult economic situation like this, you have to take a lot of things into consideration if a big offer comes in. But I would like to stress that the directors and the president have always made the right choices and will do the same in this case."
Pogba has a contract with Juventus until the summer of 2016.
