Juventus have reached an agreement with Paul Pogba over a new contract until the summer of 2018, with the French midfielder expected to sign a new deal in the coming weeks.

Pogba's current contract with the Serie A champions runs until June 2016, but Juve were keen to open renewal talks as a number of big clubs - including Real Madrid - have showed an interest in signing the youngster following an impressive debut season in Italy.

Pogba has revealed his ambitions at the Bianconeri, though, insisting he would love to emulate former Juve star Zinedine Zidane's success at the club.

The former Manchester United midfielder, who left on a free transfer to go to Turin in 2012, made 27 league appearances for Juve last term, netting five goals to help them to the Serie A title.

Pogba also won the Under-20 World Cup and made his full international debut with France.
