Juventus are set to offer Paul Pogba a pay-rise in the hopes of keeping the midfielder as speculation continues that Arsenal and Chelsea are hoping to sign the Frenchman in the coming transfer window.
Pogba has starred for the Italian side since sealing a controversial move away from Manchester United in the summer of 2012 and looks to have proven Sir Alex Ferguson wrong in his assertions that the youngster wasn't ready for regular first-team action.
But Juventus sporting director Giuseppe Marotta has insisted that the Serie A side want to keep Pogba and will offer the former Le Havre midfielder a bumper pay rise to encourage him to turn his back on a move.
"Pogba is happy at Juventus and he has no intention of leaving," he said, according to Goal.com.
"We will meet with the Frenchman's agents soon to extend our agreement and, at the same time, we will give him a pay-rise for his development."
Since making the move from United Pogba's career has flourished and the powerful midfielder has become an important member of both the Juventus first team and the France senior international side.
With Pogba gunning for a place in the 2014 Brazil World Cup squad, should Frace come through their play-off game against Ukraine, it's unlikely he would move elsewhere in January as he looks to continue getting chances with a side challenging in the Champions League and for the Italian title.
