Juve to discuss Pogba deal

France Football suggests that Juventus officials will today meet with Paul Pogba’s representatives to discuss a possible renewal.

A new contract has been on the cards for the 21-year-old for most of the summer, since speculation over a possible move away was ended.

Whilst Beppe Marotta hinted recently that an agreement on an extension was close, members of the player’s entourage were quoted in French media as denying this.

However, now France Football are running the line that officials from the Bianconeri will meet with those representing Pogba to assess the possibility of negotiating a new contract.

The midfielder’s current deal expires in June 2016 and previous suggestions have been that Juve are prepared to up his annual salary from its current €1m mark to around the €4m level.
