Ahead of Manchester United’s Europa League quarter-final match-up against FC Copenhagen, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has dropped a huge hint in his press conference that his World Cup midfielder Paul Pogba will commit his future to the Reds.
Pogba, 27, famously rejoined United in 2016 after previously departing the club in favour of Italian giants Juventus in 2012.
Since Pogba’s United reunion the Frenchman has been directly involved in 65 goals in 162 appearances in all competitions with arguably one of his most important goals coming in the 2017 Europa League final against Ajax, helping his side to a 2-0 victory as they went onto lift the trophy.
Despite Pogba’s largely successful second spell at United, there has been an overwhelming sense that the midfielder may eventually move on once his current contract comes to an end in 2021.
However, due to a string of fine performances since competitive football restarted back in June this year, Pogba’s future now looks increasingly more likely to be United.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference earlier today, when asked about the current contractual situation surrounding Pogba, as quoted by Manchester Evening News, Solskjaer said: “I’ve answered numerous questions on Paul and we’re delighted he’s back playing, he’s fit, he’s enjoying his football, he’s got to make up for lost time and he’s doing that.
“He’s training extra, always a great personality around the place and hopefully we can see him lift this trophy as he has done before.
“He’s pro, a fantastic boy and delighted we’ve got him in the team.”
