Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba looks set to remain with the club after he turned down a move to Juventus.

Pogba, 18, was reportedly close to finalising a move to the Serie A giants earlier this month, amid reports he had agreed to leave Old Trafford when his contract expires at the end of the season.

However, the Manchester United youngster is now set to perform a dramatic U-turn and sign a new deal at the club, after Sir Alex Ferguson assured him of his long-term future at the club.

Pogba was included in the squad for Sunday's 2-0 Premier League win over West Brom and came on as a 72nd minute substitute.

After the match, Ferguson revealed the player was still undecided over his future, saying: "The boy is still trying to make his mind up but he knows where he should be," Ferguson is quoted on ESPN Soccernet.

"He has shown again the potential he has got and he is a first-team player, there is no question about that."

Meanwhile, Ferguson has warned title rivals Manchester City that his team have the experience to close out the title, after they usurped City at the top of the table.

"We have that experience and it does help," Ferguson told the Daily Mail.

"We won't get nervous. Against West Brom we kept playing our football even at 1-0 when the fans were thinking 'just get us a second'.

"It didn't concern the players one bit. It is good to see that kind of temperament."
