Paul Pogba looks set to end speculation over his future by putting pen to paper on a new contract extension with Juventus, according to Goal.

Juventus are set to open talks with the midfielder and are confident of tying him down to a long-term deal, while his agent Mino Raiola is due in Turin to open talks, add the website.

The news will come as a blow to both Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain who have both been linked with a swoop for his services in recent months. Chelsea and Real Madrid have also been credited with an interest in the talented youngster.

Earlier reports suggested that Paris Saint-Germain could spark a bidding war for the 20-year-old.

However Goal say that the most likely outcome to the saga is Pogba putting pen to paper on a new contract that will see him remain in Turin until 2018.

Manchester United had reportedly been hopeful of luring the French international back to Old Trafford having watched him walk away from the club in the summer of 2012.

Since leaving Manchester United, Pogba has gone on to establish himself in the Old Lady's midfield and has scooped the prestigious Golden Boy award for the most talented youngster in Europe.

The Red Devils have also been linked with Pogba's midfield colleague Arturo Vidal and are reportedly eying a £60 million double raid - however the Chilean insisted recently that he wouldn't be leaving the Serie A club anytime soon.

It looks likely that they will be unable to sign either midfielder and that they will have to look elsewhere as they look to rebuild in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era under troubled boss David Moyes.
