Speaking to


, the Los Blancos midfielder admitted he dislikes those comparisons despite admiring the Juventus star.

Tchouameni said: "

I am not the new Pogba, I am Aurelien Tchouameni, I try to write my own story. Pogba is a player I followed a lot when he was little and whom I follow a lot. We play in the same position, but there is only one Pogba."


The former


midfielder revealed he wasn't tempted by

Paris Saint-Germain

's offer as he wanted the move to the reigning European champions.

he said.

"But I'm trying to live up to expectations, to do what I can do on the pitch and so far it's going quite well.

With the
