Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has long been an enigma for many supporters over the years. His five-year stay at the club, since his return in 2016, has been underwhelming so far.
This calendar year has been Pogba’s most productive of his second spell at the club, as he has emerged as one of the side’s most important players on either side of this summer’s European Championship. The 28-year-old was one of France’s best players during the tournament.
Pogba has less than one year remaining on his current deal at Old Trafford and has been linked with a move elsewhere for several years – he is also free to speak to foreign clubs in January over a pre-agreement, with a view to leaving on a free transfer in the summer.
French outlet L’Equipe, via Sport Witness, has given a positive update on the situation from a Manchester United perspective, with the player now ‘not hiding’ his ‘desire’ to extend his terms beyond next summer at the Old Trafford club.
Furthermore, Pogba’s change in stance is said to be down to a number of factors, with one of them being that United are looking more likely to challenge for the big honours.
The news will come as a positive update for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has been singing Pogba’s praises publicly since he was appointed caretaker manager in December 2018.
