Paul Pogba impressed by Man United’s direction under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is reportedly ‘optimistic’ following the club’s newfound direction under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with the Frenchman now more open to signing a new contract.

That’s according to a recent report from the Daily Mail, who claims that although the 2018 World Cup winner is unlikely to sign a new contract before this summer’s transfer window shuts on Aug 31, he is becoming increasingly more likely to pen a new deal.

The outlet notes that the recent arrivals of both Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane have added ‘excitement’ among the players behind the scenes.

However, as two genuinely class players arrive, this summer, or perhaps next could see one depart.

Pogba, 28, will be out of contract at Old Trafford this time next year and unless he signs a new deal, he could agree to move to a foreign club as early as January 2022.

Paris-Saint Germain is rumoured to be preparing to offer the midfielder the chance to team up with Lionel Messi and co. at the Parc des Princes.

However, according to the Daily Mail, recent improvements, not only to the squad but also in the manner in which Solskjaer is orchestrating things, could provide the club with a welcome boost in their efforts to see Pogba extend his stay.

The Red Devils’ hierarchy is understood to have recently ‘accelerated’ their desire to reach a new contract agreement with Pogba.
