Pogba - Juventus are drawing up a lucrative contract to try and tie down 20-year-old French midfielder .

The former has become one of Europe’s most sought after young talents since joining the Old Lady in 2012 and speculation of a move abroad was triggered when Juve president Andrea Agnelli admitted the club may not have the financial power to turn down a big money offer for the player.

According to Tuttosport, the Turin giants are ready to offer Pogba an increased salary of €2.5 million a year plus bonuses whilst the player’s agent Mino Riola is asking for €3m per annum without bonuses.

Pogba has his fair share of suitors with , , , and all reportedly eager to take the French international away from Turin.

As a result of this fierce competition for the player’s signature, Juve are keen to insert a large buy-out clause into the player’s contract so that a buying club will have to fork out a huge fee to obtain  Pogba’s services.

It is currently thought that the Juventus hierarchy value the 20-year-old at €50m and that is the figure of the buy-out clause likely to be included in the contract should Pogba renew with the Old Lady.
