Juventus are stepping up their efforts to keep Paul Pogba out of the hands of his many suitors by scheduling contract renewal talks for next week.

According to Italian daily Tuttosport, Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta and technical director Fabio Paratici will meet the midfielder's representatives with a substantial salary increase set to be proposed.

The Bianconeri are aware of interest in the France international from Manchester United, Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain, with the latter boasting exceptionally deep pockets.

Pogba will therefore be offered a package worth between €4m and €4.5m per year, much improving his current €1.5m salary.


Pogba has been a revelation since joining Juventus from Manchester United in the summer of 2012, choosing not to stay at Old Trafford and allowing his contract to expire.

The all-action midfielder duly helped the Bianconeri to win the Serie A title during his first term at the club, while they are in pole position to scoop it up once again this season.

If Pogba agrees to the proposed deal then it will extend his stay in Turin until 2018.
