Chelsea and Man City have both been linked with a move for the French international, while Barcelona reportedly had an €80m offer rejected earlier this month.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Juve have set a July 31 deadline to resolve the future of Pogba, while teammate and fellow midfielder Arturo Vidal also faces a similar fate.
The Italian giants have never wavered in their stance that neither player will leave the club this summer, but if the report of a deadline is true, then they may well be open to discussing a fee in the coming weeks and considering whether or not it is acceptable.
Former Manchester United starlet Pogba has continued his development in Turin in the last few years and is widely regarded as one of the most talented midfielders in Europe.
While the 22-year-old has also insisted that he does not wish to leave, a sizeable offer could make Juve consider their options with City arguably better placed in terms of possessing the funds necessary to prise him away.
