Paris Saint-Germain are willing to offer Juventus €70 million for midfielder Paul Pogba - but the Italian club are holding out for a bidding war with Chelsea, Manchester City poised to join the race for his signature.
According to Italian newspaper Corierre dello Sport, Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has flown to Paris to hold talks with his PSG counterpart, with a view of making an offer ahead of a summer swoop.
The paper adds that while no offer was made during the hour-long meeting, Paris Saint-Germain have made it known that they are willing to offer up to €70 million for Pogba's services.
However that figure could rise if Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester City enter the race for the French starlet.
Corierre dello Sport report that all three clubs have shown an interest in signing Pogba in the summer, and could be willing to make an big-money offer.
Chelsea have been linked with trying to take the former Manchester United ace to Stamford Bridge in the past.
Chelsea may decide to make landing him a priority, with the futures of both John Obi-Mikel and Frank Lampard in doubt.
Pogba joined Juventus in the summer of 2012 from Old Trafford, and has gone on to establish himself as one of Europe's finest young players.
The 20-year-old is likely to play a key role in his country's World Cup campaign in the summer, and won the prestigious 'Golden Boy' award last year.
Corierre dello Sport add that Juventus still have some hope of keeping hold of Pogba, and will offer him a bumper new contract to ward off his suitors.
