Juventus are preparing to offer Paul Pogba a new contract to keep him away from interested parties, according to the Daily Mirror.

Pogba originally joined Juventus on a free transfer following a contract rangle with his former club Manchester United.

Reports have previously suggested that Pogba's agent was demanding £30,000-a-week from the Red Devils but Sir Alex Ferguson refused to pay it.

However, his successor David Moyes will be wishing he had done as the French midfielder has blossomed into one of the brightest talents in world football.

Manchester United were ready to pay big to get him back to Old Trafford with £50m thought to be enough to convince Juventus to sell. But the Serie A champions are in no mood to see their most marketable talent leave Turin and are ready to offer him a four-year deal worth £50,000-a-week.

There are also rumours suggesting that Paris Saint-Germain will offer big money in order to secure Pogba's signature ahead of Manchester United.

Laurent Blanc is looking to acquire the best French talent in the world and having already recruited Yohan Cabaye in the January transfer window. He is now looking to step it up a notch with a £59m bid for Pogba.
