Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is optimistic Paul Pogba will sign a new contract. Pogba has entered the final year of his deal at Old Trafford, although the club have the option to extend until 2022.
The London giant have withheld Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay with new contracts and Solskjaer is keen for Pogba, who has been linked with moves to Real Madrid and Juventus, to follow in signing a deal.
Solskjaer said “I can’t comment on discussions between a player and the club but of course we want to keep the best players around the club, we want to build a squad for the future and Scott and Nemanja are in a similar position but at different stages in their careers. One at the start, one really experienced one. We also need players in the mid-range group. Hopefully we can do something with Pogba. I know that since Paul’s come back he’s looking better and better. He’s enjoying his football and let’s see where it takes us.”
Manchester United is facing a crucial summer in the transfer market as he looks to close the gap on Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the table. Despite the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic, sources have told ESPN that United remain interested in Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, but only at a price well below Â£100 million.
