After securing their fifth Serie A title in a row, the Italian champions are keen to ensure that their prized midfielder will remain at the club for the long term.
Juventus have no plans to sell Paul Pogba this summer, Goal understands.
The club have secured their fifth consecutive Serie A title and Juve’s hierarchy are now planning ahead of the summer transfer window – but the sale of their prized asset is not under consideration.
The France international’s current contract expires in 2019, and Juventus’ general manager, Beppe Marotta, has already insisted that the midfielder, who has made 175 appearances for the club since his arrival from Manchester United in 2012, will not be made available.
“We made a clear decision on Pogba last year,” Marotta told RAI radio earlier in April.
“He is going to be a key element for years to come. He’s happy with us, he’s grown and he’s become a champion, and this is his natural habitat.”
Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, hinted in December that the 23-year-old could leave Juve this summer, but his stance now remains consistent with the Serie A champions.
“Juve won’t accept anything less than €100 million for his sale and I agree with that, though he is more than happy to remain with the Bianconeri,” Raiola told La Gazzetta dello Sport at the end of March.
“We are even ready to sign a new contract.”
Juve have been keen to clarify Pogba’s position before the end of the season and have already met with Raiola in Turin this month.
Talks have been positive, while Pogba’s excellent relationship with coach Massimiliano Allegri is also a huge factor in convincing the midfielder to reject a move to Europe’s elite.
Juve’s next aim is to win the Champions League and should they achieve that next season, the club would be in a position to turn down a mega-money offer for the midfielder.
