Juventus are looking to offer Paul Pogba a contract extension with an exit clause that could rival the whopping €63m tagged on former Napoli forward Edinson Cavani.

Cavani's release clause was eventually met by Paris Saint-Germain this summer, a move that helped Napoli go on a huge shopping spree.


Pogba's contract renewal is yet to see the light of day, but Juventus are thinking of setting a release clause high-enough to avoid a quick exit, according to Tuttosport.

Pogba is believed to be on the radar at Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid, Arsenal and Chelsea, though the process of renewal seems tricky at present.


It is believed his agent Mino Raiola has proposed a wage hike up to €4m annually failing which, Raiola has demanded Juventus buy up another of his clients in AC Milan's Ignazio Abate.

A big release clause will be the least Juventus would want to employ to ensure the efforts to retain Pogba do not go to waste.

He is being tipped as one of the great players of the future, having enjoyed many years at Manchester United before leaving on a free transfer to Juventus.

Pogba has already scored four goals and made as many assists in 12 games for Juventus in Serie A this season.

The Frenchman is contracted until 2016, and recently helped his country achieve World Cup qualification in their playoff against Ukraine.
