Italian giants Juventus are in crunch talks with Frenchman Paul Pogba in an attempt to keep him at the club, according to the Express.
The midfield ace - who is recognised as one the leading young midfield talents in world football - is wanted by a number of the Premier League's elite clubs.
In fact, as many as three English clubs seem to be monitoring the player's situation, with the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City all reportedly interested.
United, of course, previously had Pogba on their books until he jumped ship to Juventus in 2012 after struggling for first-team opportunities under Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.
However, with Louis van Gaal now at the helm at the Theatre of Dreams, it appears that the club are ready to bring the youngster back to England. It won't be easy for United to land their man, however, with Jose Mourinho's Chelsea and Manuel Pellegrini's Manchester City seemingly interested in is signature.
It appears that all three clubs still remain hopeful of landing the box-to-box midfielder, but it won't be easy to prize him away from the Turin club.
Juventus getting desperate
Serie A champions Juventus appear to be getting worried over the future of their star player, as they still haven't tied him down to a long-term deal.
However, the same report from the Express has suggested that the European giants are ready to offer the Frenchman as much as £60,000-a-week in order keep him in Italy's elite division. The salary would ultimately triple his current wages, and it appears that the player is happy to remain in Italy.
There's a worry on the part of Juventus, however, that they may have to sell him on a cut price deal next summer if he fails to sign the lengthy contract before the end of the season. Manchester United, City and Chelsea, then, will continue to watch the proceedings with great interest in a saga that continues to rumble on.
