France and Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has been banned for four years for a doping offence, sources have told ESPN and the Associated Press.

Pogba was provisionally suspended by Italy's national anti-doping (NADO Italia) tribunal in September after testing positive for testosterone -- a banned substance.

Italian prosecutors requested a maximum four-year ban in December.

Pogba tested positive for testosterone after Juventus' game against Udinese on Aug. 20 2023. He did not play in the match but was on the bench.

Reports claim Pogba will appeal against the ruling to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
