Paul Pogba could sign a contract extension with Manchester United if the club can challenge for big trophies as per the report in Sky Sports.
The 28-year-old hasn’t had a great time at the Red Devils in his second spell at his boyhood club. The midfielder has been inconsistent and the club’s downfall during this time did not help the world cup winner either. However, he had his best season at Old Trafford in 2018-2019, scoring 13 goals and assisting nine times in 35 Premier League appearances.
The Frenchman’s future has been a subject of concern for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The midfielder’s agent Mino Riola previously stated multiple times that the former Juventus man will leave Manchester United and his client is not happy with the club’s lack of success on the pitch.
Will Paul Pogba prolong his stay at Manchester United?
According to the report in Sky Sports, the France international has an excellent relationship with manager Solskjaer and is eager to return to the pre-season and start playing alongside new signings Jadon Sancho and impending Raphael Varane.
The report further claims that Paul Pogba loves Manchester United and could sign a contract extension. However, at this stage of his career, he does not want to rush things and will take time to understand what will be the best for his future.
Should the midfielder not sign an extension before the end of the transfer window that does not mean he would not. If Manchester United can show signs of challenging for big trophies then Paul Pogba could be open to signing a new deal with the club.
The Red Devils have shown signs of intent in the transfer market so far, but they still need to sign a new holding midfielder to challenge for the Premier League title next season. Solskjaer’s side will have to be active in offloading some players as well. Currently, they have a huge squad and a big wage bill. Cashing in on a few of them will help to generate a transfer budget for a World-class midfielder.
