Manchester United have been handed a huge boost in their pursuit to see star midfielder Paul Pogba extend his stay at Old Trafford.
Pogba, 27, rejoined United in 2016, four years after departing their illustrious youth academy in favour of a move to Juventus.
Despite the huge £94.5m fee paid to bring him back to Manchester, the midfielder continues to split opinions.
A series of inconsistent performances, as well as the 27-year-old’s choice of representation, has seen the midfielder’s long-term future continually speculated.
When it comes to transfer speculation, Pogba’s super-agent Mino Raiola has been well known to add fuel to the fire.
The agent’s latest headline hitting comments came after he recently told Tuttosport that his star-client is ‘unhappy’ and ‘has no intention’ of signing a new deal.
After opting to trigger a one-year extension in his contract (BBC), the Red Devils’ hierarchy has seemingly made little progress in negotiating a new deal.
With less than 18-months left on his contract and no sign of renewal, Pogba’s long-term future continues to hang in the balance.
However, in a shocking turn of events, according to journalist Andy Mitten (relayed by the Mirror), United’s World Cup could now be set to make a remarkable u-turn.

Should Pogba and United’s officials reach an agreement to extend his contract, the 27-year-old is all but certain to gift the Red Devils his best days and rumours of a move back to Juventus finally put to bed.
