Buffon believes Pogba will sign

Gianluigi Buffon is confident that Paul Pogba will follow Arturo Vidal’s lead and sign an extension at Juventus.

Vidal penned a new deal with the Bianconeri on Tuesday that keeps him in Turin until 2017.

And the goalkeeper has claimed that the French midfielder, who was recently named as the best under-21 player in Europe, will join his Chilean teammate.

“If Arturo, with all the offers he had, signed with Juve, it means there is an important project here,” he told Tuttosport.

“It means that the best, most decorated players, believe they can achieve everything in the game here.

“And I think you’ll see that with Pogba. I don’t know when [he will sign] but I’m sure it’s just a matter of days.”

Buffon then commented on next summer’s World Cup and the Scudetto challenge that comes before it with the Bianconeri.

“I hope the World Cup lasts as long as possible for us. There are three or four teams that are stronger than us, but no team knows how to fight like Italy.

“Roma have been a big surprise. If they find continuity, they can fight all the way until the last week.”
