Paul Pogba is set to remain at Manchester United this summer and will soon hold negotiations with the club about a new deal, Mino Raiola has confirmed.
Pogba has twice requested to leave United in the last two years but the arrival of Bruno Fernandes and an upswing in displays under Solskjaer have convinced the player that he has a future at the theatre of dreams.
While the coronavirus effect on club finances means it’s unlikely that any club in the world could afford Pogba, Raiola has confirmed the midfielder will not leave this transfer window.
But the Red devils fans will be further buoyed by the agent’s revelation that contract discussions will soon begin with Pogba, whose current contract expires in 2021.
‘Pogba is key player for Man Utd, they’ve an important project and he’s 100% included, Raiola told Sky Sports.
‘Manchester United will not accept any bid on this summer to sell Pogba. We’re going to speak about a new contract soon, no stress’
Should the France international sign a new deal it will be a shocking turnaround for the player.

Pogba played in just six Premier League games before Project Restart and United had appeared to move on from the Frenchman.
However the pandemic changed the landscape of football and Pogba was happier playing in a new-look team under Solskjaer that included Fernandes and Mason Greenwood.
