Juventus remain front-runners to sign Paul Pogba after being alerted to his contract dispute at Manchester United reports the Daily Mail.

The 18-year-old midfielder has attracted attention from a number of clubs, including near-neighbours and fierce rivals Manchester City, after the Frenchman continues to stall over a new deal.

Pogba moved to Old Trafford from Le Harve in 2009, and is tipped for a bright future at Manchester United, with Sir Alex Ferguson earmarking next season as the youngster's potential breakthrough campaign.

Having made three Carling Cup appearances this year, Pogba has had a taste of first-team action, and is understood to be growing frustrated at a lack of regular action.

According to SportsMail, Juventus officals visited Manchester last week to register their interest in Pogba's services, after learning that the France U19 international could be available for a knockdown fee.

With his current deal set to expire at the end of the 2011-12 campaign, Manchester United chiefs will be determined not to lose Pogba to a Barclays Premier League competitor, and so may be forced to settle on an agreement that will see him move to Serie A.
