Paul Pogba’s future at Manchester United is set to dominate the headlines between now and the end of the window, with the midfielder yet to sign a new contract at the club. Pogba has just one year remaining on the six-year deal he signed in 2016 and could leave for nothing next summer.
Previously, Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth claimed that Pogba could see a long-term future at Manchester United, with the 28-year-old said to ‘love’ the club.
These claims were challenged by Sheth’s Sky Sports colleague Kavel Solehkol on the airwaves earlier on Monday, with the latter hinting that Pogba’s contract stance contradicts Sheth’s claims that an extension is still possible.

Sheth argued that a possible exit on a free transfer next year, even if Pogba doesn’t sign a new deal during this summer’s window, does not eliminate the chances of the former Juventus star staying beyond next year.
Earlier this summer, it was reported that Pogba was close to agreeing on personal terms with Paris Saint-Germain, with the player reportedly courted by manager Mauricio Pochettino.
