The 28-year-old’s future has been a point of concern for the Old Trafford outfit as the midfielder’s current contract will expire at the end of this season and he has rejected to sign a contract extension.
However, it is not clear yet as to who will meet the player’s financial demands during this pandemic. The Red Devils have reportedly offered a new deal with a huge salary hike but, the Frenchman is willing to weigh up his options in the summer before making the final decision.
As per the report, Paul Pogba has been insisted to wait by the club until they appoint the next manager. The Red Devils hierarchy believe that the Frenchman could be lured by the new manager to prolong his stay at the theatre of dreams.
If Manchester United can manage to keep Paul Pogba then that will be exciting for the Mancunians. Despite the Frenchman’s inconsistent display since arriving from Juventus, the 28-year-old is one of the most talented and versatile midfielders Ralf Rangnick currently has at his disposal.
The Old Trafford outfit started the season brilliantly and the France international played a key role, notching up seven assists in the first few games in the Premier League. However, things have gone downhill amid his injury absentee.
Meanwhile, the 28-years-old has returned to the training with the first-team squad and could feature in Friday’s game against Middlesbrough. So, Ralf Rangnick will have more options in midfield to choose from after the international break.
Following the F.A Cup tie, Manchester United will have to encounter Burnley away from home and Southampton at Old Trafford respectively in the Premier League. So, Pogba’s return will be a huge boost for the Red Devils amidst congested fixtures.
