It’s fair to say Paul Pogba’s relationship with Manchester United fans is somewhat strained.
Few will doubt his ability but his focus has come under questioning during his time at the club, but it looks like Pogba knows what he wants and he finally looks settled at Old Trafford.
Pogba’s poor relationship with José Mourinho was no secret and, while some may have felt it could’ve been down to the player’s behaviour off the pitch, things are looking a lot better under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
He has shown that on his day, he is one of the top midfielders in the world, and hopefully that will be clear on Sunday night when the Reds take on Sevilla in the Europa League semi-final.
The French missed a lot of football this season but has been in decent form since the Premier League restart. After securing Champions League football next season the aim is to win the Europa League
Pogba returned to the team and formed a formidable partnership with Bruno Fernandes.
It now looks like the World Cup-winner will pen fresh terms with Manchester United…
According to Sky Sports, Pogba, who has just under 12 months remaining on his current deal, is expecting United to open contract talks once their Europa League campaign ends.
“Pogba is happy at United and he’s expecting them to open contract talks once their Europa League campaign is over,” reports Sky Sports News’ Dharmesh Sheth.
“His current deal runs out next summer but United always insert this year option so they don’t get caught out with free transfers.
“It should be said United are in a better position to negotiate with Pogba and the returning Dean Henderson, as it stands from Sheffield United, following the departure of Alexis Sanchez and all of the money his wages have now freed.
“There appears to be a willingness from all parties to get around the table as far as Pogba is concerned.”
The report adds there is a willingness from all parties to ‘get around the table’.
