Paul Pogba set to discuss Manchester United’s future at the end of the season
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has revealed he sat down with the club at the end of the season to discuss his contractual situation.
The Frenchman has entered the final 18 months of his current contract and is set to be sold next summer after agent Mino Raiola publicly stated that Pogba wanted to leave Old Trafford because he was “unhappy”.
However, those comments came before Pogba rediscovered his best form and lead United to the top of the Premier League table. Suddenly an exit doesn’t seem as certain as it did just a month ago, and Pogba has admitted he’s ready to talk to the club about his future.
“I’m on contract, I’m here, I’m having fun,” Pogba told BT Sport in preparation for United’s 2-1 loss to Sheffield United. “Everyone knows I have a year left, I’m going to talk to the club and see what happens.
“Right now my goal, my goal is to win something. That’s all I can think of is winning. ”
Pogba recently insisted he would continue to be happy at Old Trafford as long as his side continued to win, admitting he struggled to cope when United came out on the losing side – as they did on Wednesday .
Its future is difficult to understand. In terms of potential landing points, it’s Real Madrid and Juventus who are commonly named contenders, although neither side has just about the cash to land the midfield.
If United sold this summer they know they would likely take a loss on the £ 89million they spent to bring him back to Old Trafford in 2016, but he would remain one of the most expensive transfers of the summer .
However, whether United really want to sell is another question. Now that he’s shaken off the injuries that plagued him for a year, Pogba looks like the game-changing midfielder he was meant to be, and it’s no coincidence that United’s turnaround came at the same time than the resurgence of Pogba.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made no secret of his desire to keep Pogba, but he may have to keep his side in a title battle if he is to convince the World Cup winner to stay.
