Juventus plan to keep Pogba

Juventus have no intention of offloading Paul Pogba, with there a desire on their part to agree a contract extension.

A third successive Serie A title was sealed by Antonio Conte's side on Sunday, with a 4-1 defeat for rivals Roma handing them the crown.

Attention can now turn towards the summer and building again to ensure that they remain on top in 2014/15.

A key part of those plans will be keeping Pogba in Turin.

Speculation continues to suggest that the France international midfielder is wanted by Europe's top clubs - with Paris St Germain leading the chase - but Juventus claim they are planning to discuss fresh terms, not a sale.

General manager Giuseppe Marotta told Sky Sport Italy: "We intend to extend Pogba's contract and we have already spoken with his agent.

"Paul is a smart guy and this is the perfect place for him to improve further. You cannot imagine him leaving Juventus."

Juve director Pavel Nedved added: "We would like to keep Pogba for as long as possible.

"The best thing for his career is to remain at Juventus. Paul must think of his growth as a player, not of the money, and I have said this to (his agent Mino) Raiola."
