Paul Pogba is set to end speculation regarding his future by signing a new contract with Manchester United, it has been claimed.

The 18-year-old midfielder is out of contract at the end of the season, and has reportedly been in touch with Juventus regarding a potential summer move to Turin.

United have always maintained that they want to keep Pogba at Old Trafford and, only yesterday, Sir Alex Ferguson insisted the French youngster remains part of his plans.

“The boy is still trying to make his mind up but he knows where he should be and he has shown today the potential he has got," Ferguson told manutd.com after Pogba appeared as a second-half substitute in the win over West Brom.

“He is a first team player, there is no question about that.”

It would now appear that Pogba has taken heed of Ferguson's advice, and will further extend his stay with the Premier League champions.

According to skysports.com, Pogba has agreed terms over a new deal, although the club have yet to officially confirm that the youngster will stay.

Pogba has made five first-team appearances for United, and is likely to become a prominent figure under Ferguson over the next few seasons.
