Pogba makes U-turn over Man Utd contract as new star major factor


Paul Pogba is now looking to extend his stay at Manchester United after the return of Cristiano Ronaldo, according to reports.

The France international has entered the last year of his contract and discussions over a new contract with United have not progressed.

The Red devils face the prospect of losing Pogba on a free transfer next summer with Real Madrid and PSG both keen to sign the player.

But, The Athletic claims that Pogba is now reconsidering the idea of leaving Old Trafford due to events over the past week.

The report claims that Ronaldo’s return to the club on Saturday had a ‘profound effect’ on Pogba and there is now the belief that the midfielder will sign a new contract with the club.

United have already made plans incase Pogba leaves next summer and are targeting possible replacements with West Ham’s Declan Rice high on their transfer shortlist.

Pogba has made an outstanding start to the new campaign with United and has already made seven assists in four Premier League matches so far.

The Frenchman is set to break the current record of 20 assists in a single Premier League campaign, which is currently held by both Thierry Henry and Kevin De Bruyne.

Despite the speculation over the player’s future, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has remained adamant that he will continue to be committed to United.

‘If you’ve got a five-year contract or a one-year contract, when you sign for Man Utd you have to rise to the challenge of performing on a consistent level,’ Solskjaer said last month.

‘What I expect is that the attitude and the approach to every game is the right one. That we have the same focus, the right focus, the right professionalism and, with that, I have no worries about Paul whatsoever.’
