Italian Serie A giants Juventus have concluded plans to offer first-choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny a new contract in a bid to secure his long-term future at the club.

According to Goal, Juventus are not willing to take chances on their first choice shot-stopper after Premier League giants Manchester United made an enquiry about him.

It was revealed that the Manchester United enquiry came while David De Gea was stalling over a new deal at the club.

David De Gea had less than a year on his Manchester United contract before the Spaniard was handed a new deal to make him the highest paid player at the club.

The aforementioned report from Goal said that Juventus will give Wojciech Szczesny a three-year extension in addition to a significant rise on his almost three million euros yearly salary with the Italian champions.

Wojciech Szczesny was an Arsenal goalkeeper before he joined Italian champions Juventus two years ago.

Despite the return of club legend and veteran shot-stopper Gianlugi Buffon to Juventus this summer from a short spell at French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG), Szczesny has retained his spot as the first choice goalkeeper and has helped his team to the top of the Italian Serie A table.
