Manchester United have suffered a massive blow after Juventus confirmed they have no intention of letting midfielder Paul Pogba leave and are willing to offer him a contract extension, reports suggest.

The France international - who has garnered a reputation as one of the best midfielders in Europe - left Old Trafford in 2012 after Sir Alex Ferguson used him in just three Premier League games.

Pogba's agent Mino Raiola recently increased speculation regarding a summer move, claiming that he is open to discussing the French international's future after the World Cup – but at the same time admitted that the player will also consider signing a new contract with Juventus.

But according to talkSport, The Old Lady have no intention of offloading the 21-year-old and are preparing a lucrative contract extension with a decision regarding his future likely to be made before the end of the month.

The young midfielder has attracted interest from many of Europe's top clubs, including United. Arsenal were credited with interest in his services last summer while Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are also monitoring the player.

Los Blancos have reportedly earmarked Pogba as their next 'Galactico' signing. After Gareth Bale's acquisition last summer, the Spanish giants want Pogba and they are willing to match PSG's bid by offering €40m plus left-back Fabio Coentrao in the deal.

Meanwhile, the Ligue 1 side are ready to break the bank for the former United starlet and will try to eclipse the offer made for Edinson Cavani last summer with a €70m bid.
