Pogba has missed the majority of the prolonged 2019-20 campaign through injury, but his impressive return to the starting XI this season could yet end in Europa League glory – with a new deal to follow.
As reported by Sky Sports News’ Dharmesh Sheth: “Pogba is happy at United and he’s expecting them to open contract talks once their Europa League campaign is over,”
“His current deal runs out next summer but United always insert this year option so they don’t get caught out with free transfers. There appears to be a willingness from all parties to get around the table as far as Pogba is concerned.”
Paul Pogba recently sent Manchester United fans into wild speculation about a new contract after posting a cryptic tweet.
However, it turned out to be an announcement of the beginning of his time at Verdansk FC which is a Call-Of-Duty gaming team.
Pogba’s future has come under the spotlight in recent season with him being linked with a move to Real Madrid and even a return back to Juventus. A new deal will certainly put to bed all those speculations.
Since Bruno Fernandes‘ arrival in January, Manchester United have lost only one game in all competitions and things are looking up at the Theatre of Dreams again so it’s no surprise that Pogba wants to stay.
Together with Bruno, Pogba has formed amazing chemistry with the Portuguese midfield maestro which has been central to United’s return to form in the second half of the season.
Manchester United are still in the Europa League and will hope that their star midfielders continue playing well as they seek to end the season on a high with silverware in Germany.
This is a huge turnaround from February where Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola publicly criticised both Solskjaer and United, with all roads pointing towards the player leaving, but relations between all parties have improved.
With Pogba now set to stay, Manchester United’s plans to return to the apex of English football still intact and the news will have brought large optimism into the Old Trafford faithful. A Europa League triumph with a new contract for Paul Pogba will be some way to end the season.
