Juventus have no intention of selling prized midfielder Paul Pogba and are intending to offer the youngster a contract extension.

The Turin based club won a third successive Serie A title following Roma's surprising 4-1 loss to Catania and can now look ahead to the summer. On top of their list of things to do is keeping Pogba.

There has been speculation that French champions Paris St Germain have been interested in signing Pogba for a while now but Juventus insist that he is not for sale and that they want him to sign a contract extension. General manager Giuseppe Marotta told Sky Sport Italy: "We intend to extend Pogba's contract and we have already spoken with his agent.

"Paul is a smart guy and this is the perfect place for him to improve further. You cannot imagine him leaving Juventus."

Juventus director Pavel Nedved added: "We would like to keep Pogba for as long as possible.

"The best thing for his career is to remain at Juventus. Paul must think of his growth as a player, not of the money, and I have said this to (his agent Mino) Raiola."

The 21-year-old is likely to be selected for the French national team that will got to the World Cup in Brazil this summer, and his stock could potentially rise even higher if he manages to perform well. It's said that a number of Premier League clubs - including Manchester United and Manchester City - are also looking into the prospect of signing him, and Real Madrid are thought to hold an interest.
