Paul Pogba's agent claims the Manchester United youngster will make a decision on his future next week.
The Frenchman is out of contract in the summer and has yet to pen fresh terms at Old Trafford following months of talks.
Italian giants Juventus are waiting in the wings to sign Pogba and reports emanating from Turin claim the Bianconeri are emerging as favourites to land the 19-year-old.
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson revealed last month a deal had been agreed with Pogba's representative and that it was now up to the player to sign the contract on offer.
Pogba enjoyed a run of games in the United side from January before injury last month curtailed his season early.
Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, has revealed the midfielder has a tough decision to make and will announce his future one way or another later this month.
"I don't know [which way it will go between United and Juventus]," Raiola is quoted as saying in The Times.
"It could be United. I will know next week
"I think Paul's positive about Ferguson. The boy has a difficult decision to make."
