Spanish newspaper Sport has suggested that officials from last season’s two Champions League finalists are to meet in Turin.

Spanish newspaper Sport has suggested that representatives from Barcelona and Juventus are set to meet next Wednesday to discuss the potential for Paul Pogba to join the Catalan giants.

The France international midfielder is widely acknowledged as one of the most promising young players in world football and his future with the Serie A champions has been a point of contention over the last 12 months.

The former Manchester United youth graduate has played an essential role in the Bianconeri’s domestic success in recent years, while he also helped the Turin-based club to the final of the Champions League last season.

Sport suggest that Barcelona officials Ariedo Braida and Albert Solar will travel to Italy next week to meet with their Juventus counterparts in what is seen as the first potential step for Pogba to move to Camp Nou.

With the Catalan side currently serving a transfer ban, the report stipulates that the intention would be for Pogba to join the current Spanish champions for the 2016-17 campaign.

Barcelona finished the 2014-15 season by winning an unprecedented treble under Luis Enrique.
