France midfielder Paul Pogba has extended his contract at Italian side Juventus until 2019.
The 21-year-old was due to run out of contract in 2016. His new deal puts to an end transfer speculations linking him with a move away from the Turin outfit.
“We have just signed Paul Pogba’s renewal until 2019,” Juve club administrator Giuseppe Marotta said during Juve’s shareholders meeting in Turin on Friday.
Pogba, who was named young player of the tournament at last summer’s Fifa World Cup joined the Serie A champions from Manchester United on a free two years ago.
He has since formed a formidable partnership with Italy’s midfield veteran Andrea Pirlo, as the ‘Old Lady’ coasted to back-to-back championship successes.
His new deal will reportedly see him earn £69,000-a-week- three-time Pogba’s existing deal.
