Juventus have been desperate to sign the Frenchman to a long-term deal, with French reports continually linking him with a return to the country via Paris Saint Germain.

But Juventus will keep Pogba at the club by offering him a big raise, the report claims he will earn between €3.5m to €4m a year with the Italian giants once he's put pen to paper.

Of course, it may not definitely end PSG, Chelsea and Real Madrid's interest in the player, as it has been noted that Juventus would not be able to turn down a €60m offer for the 21-year-old for financial reasons.

Pogba to commit

But the likes of Chelsea and PSG may look elsewhere, at least in the short term, should Pogba commit his future to Juve.

The Serie A side are clearly working hard to convince Pogba to stay put, and Gianluigi Buffon confirmed after Juve's game against Olympiakos on Wednesday that everybody at the club is hopeful he will sign a new contract.

"It would be great news for all of us and I think for him too, because the best thing is to know that we want to make him the future of the club and make him a symbol," Buffon said.
