Both players have attracted the attention of leading European clubs and have been strongly linked with a move away from Turin next season.

However, Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta is not letting that speculation concern him and he remains optimistic about the duo staying with the Italian champions.

"There are no new developments regarding Pirlo and Pogba's contract extensions," Marotta said to Gazzetta dello Sport. "I don't think these deals will be completed before Christmas.

"However, we are calm.

"The two players consider Juve their natural habitat.

"Our squad is world-class, and it is difficult to find any other team better than ours."

Italian World Cup winner Pirlo, 34, becomes a free agent next summer and is a reported target of Real Madrid.

France international Pogba is under contract with Juve until June 2016 but is expected to sign an improved deal by the Turin outfit.

The 20-year-old, who has been linked with Paris St Germain, scored five goals in 27 league appearances to help Juve win the Serie A title last season.
