Release clause stalling Pogba deal

Paul Pogba’s contract renewal at Juventus is stalling because of a minimum fee release clause, it is claimed.

The Bianconeri midfielder has been heavily linked with a switch away from Turin in the summer, with Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid both said to be interested.

However, Antonio Conte’s men are keen to keep the France international beyond his current deal, which ends in 2016.

The club and the player’s representative have been in talks for a few months, but are stuttering over one detail.

Wages and contract length are all, according to Libero, agreed – with Pogba set to earn €3.5m per season and stay on until 2017.

However, his agent is insistent that the deal has to have a release clause inserted, something Juve do not want.
