Paul Pogba wants to assess all of his options – but the World Cup winner ‘can see a long-term future’ at Manchester United.
Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth stresses that if Paul Pogba doesn’t sign a new deal this summer, it doesn’t mean that he will leave the club.
“I’m told Pogba loves the club,” the reporter says on air before adding how the player feels this is the last big contract of his career.
The problem, however, is that the Frenchman and his representatives hold all the cards.
Sheth adds that Pogba’s entourage are still in talks over a new contract, despite claims from The Mirror suggesting he had rejected United’s latest offer.

It would prove costly if United kept Pogba this summer, only for him to leave on a Bosman next year.
It is understood that United want this saga put to bed this summer.
PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino remained coy when asked about making a move for the United midfielder.
