Andy Mitten, a well-known UK journalist who covers Manchester United, claims Paul Pogba can ‘stay’ at the club, according to the Red Devils’ Scandinavian supporters club.
Since his return to the club for a then-world-record fee in the summer of 2016, Pogba’s future has become a big talking point.
With Pogba’s contract set to expire next summer, talk has swirled that he might be sold after the season, giving United one last chance to get a good price for him.
Mitten goes on to say that the World Cup champion, who turns 28 at the end of the month, is “open to talking about a new deal” with the Red Devils.
Mitten goes on to state that the World Cup champion, who turns 28 at the end of the month, is “open to negotiating a new deal” with United.
Given the very public statements made by agent extraordinaire Mino Raiola about Pogba’s future, remaining in the spotlight seems to be the strategy for Pogba and his entourage.
“I assume Paul Pogba will stay, and I’ve been told he’s willing to talk about a new contract.”
Pogba is reportedly suffering from an injury that has caused him to miss six games in all competitions. The ace’s cutting edge has been desperately missed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.
After dealing with Covid-19 at the start of the season, the former Juventus player fought back to have a good season. Pogba’s injury occurred after the team had faded from contention for the championship.
United could have squandered a rare opportunity to win the Premier League for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season in 2012/13.
Liverpool’s slump presented a perfect chance for Manchester United to establish themselves as a world-class team, but a series of disappointing results since the pressure started to mount has left cross-town rivals Manchester City with a 12-point lead at the top with 12 Premier League games remaining.
Mitten hasn’t been credited for his work in this update, which was also released in the Mirror.
