The Bianconeri supremo is confident his team can continue their push for a UEFA Champions League spot in the second half of the Serie A season.
Udinese currently sit third in the table and they are the real surprise package in Italy.
Pozzo now insists that there are no plans to sell star men Marek Jankulovski or David Pizarro.
"I won't sell anyone because there is a pact that involves the team, the coach and the players: we want to make the Champions League, all together," Pozzo told Corriere dello Sport.
The likes of Milan, Juventus and Internazionale are known to be interested in Jankulovski.
"Jankulovski will leave in June. Milan? I can say they asked us about the player," Pozzo continued.
"They like him as do Juve and Inter. Marek wants to stay in Italy, in a big Italian club."
Pizarro is also a wanted man, with both Real Madrid and Barcelona keeping tabs on him.
"I know that Real Madrid and Barcelona are frequently sending scouts to see him," said Pozzo.
