One of the big stories of the summer will be Paul Pogba. The midfielder will be in action for France as they attempt to avenge their Euro 2016 heartbreak but the 28-year-old has also been linked with numerous top European clubs.
Pogba upset the club hierarchy in 2012 when they were blindsided by his agent, Mino Raiola, in contract talks. Instead, Pogba ran down his contract and left on a free transfer to Juventus.
With just one year remaining on his current deal at the club, supporters are growing worried that the pair are up to their old tricks again and are set to depart, leaving Manchester United embarrassed again.
But according to The Athletic, initial talks have been held with Pogba’s representatives over an extension. The publication even go on to say sources have indicated that Pogba is ‘ready to renew’ at the club, but that concerns over losing him for nothing remain.
Having turned 28 earlier this year, any new deal would likely be the France international’s last big lucrative contract. It would also be expected that fresh terms would see him become United’s best paid player, eclipsing David de Gea’s staggering £350,000-per-week wages.
