Manchester United and Chelsea target Paul Pogba is in talks to sign a new contract with current employers Juventus.

According to Goal, the French midfielder's agent Mino Raiola is set to fly in to Turin to begin talks over extending his current contract, which runs till the end of the 2016 season. It is claimed that Juventus are offering him a two-year extension that will keep him at the club till 2018.

Pogba has become an integral part of the Serie A club after his free transfer from Manchester United 18 months ago. He played a key role in Juventus' title winning campaign last season and also had an impressive 2014 World Cup campaign with France, where he was named the best young player of the tournament.

The Frenchman's performances have not gone unnoticed and he has been in the middle of a transfer battle between several top European clubs. Apart from Premier League big guns Manchester United and Chelsea, Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain have also made their interest in the midfielder very clear.

However, the Italian champions want to end the transfer speculation and have offered fresh terms to the former Manchester United midfielder. It is believed that Pogba is ready to sign the new contract as soon as his agent arrives in Italy as both parties are happy with the deal on the table.

Earlier in the summer, when Pogba was linked with a move away from the club, his agent Raiola had denied speaking to Juventus sporting director Giuseppe Marotta about a new contract. But he did admit that it is possible for his client to sign a new deal before the start of the new Serie A season.

"I've not spoken yet with (sporting director Giuseppe) Marotta and I've no plans to meet him in the near future. Anything is possible for Paul," Raiola said, as quoted on Sky Sports.

"He could remain at Juve without renewing his contract as he is committed until 2016. It is also possible that he could decide to sign an extension before the start of the new Italian season," the Juventus midfielder's agent added.
