Paul Scholes reckons Paul Pogba will commit his future to Manchester United and sign a new contract.
It was the perfect start for the Red Devils after they beat rivals Leeds United 5-1 on the opening day of the season. Bruno Fernandes scored his first ever Premier League hat-trick as Old Trafford returned to a full capacity, while Mason Greenwood and Fred scored a goal each.
Pogba, who can leave the club on a Bosman in 11-months, was in amazing four – assisting four of United’s five goals.
Former United midfielder Scholes now thinks the club are showing the required ambition and promise to convince the World Cup-winner to stay.
“I think he’ll stay,” Scholes told Premier League Productions after the match, as cited by The Metro. “I think he will.
“When he was playing a couple of years ago in a team that wasn’t quite functioning as well as this one looks like it might do, and with the amount of attacking players he’s got, the ability he’s got, I think he’ll add a lot to this team.
“I think he’ll end up signing a new contract. If this team carries on in this manner, progressing like it is – I don’t want to get too excited – but it’s a team that can go on and win trophies and that’s what he wants to do.”
I’m sure Pogba would love to win the Premier League, but if his interest is in Spain or France, that gives the impression that he’s after the Champions League.
Who knows? Nobody thought Chelsea were going to do it last season.
