Paul Pogba won’t leave United
Manchester United aren’t going to sell Paul Pogba either in January or next summer and have already assigned the French midfielder a key role in their plans for the future.
Un-bearably relationship between Pogba and Jose Mourinho only worsened with the start of the current season. The Portuguese coach, who was fired last week, regularly criticized Paul, deprived him of the right to wear a captain’s armband and compared him with a “virus”.
According to The Telegraph, Pogba was seriously determined to leave Old Trafford. The player has attracted the attention of Barcelona, PSG and his former club – Juventus.
However, the situation changed dramatically over the past week. After Mourinho’s dismissal and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s arrival at the manager position, the 25-year-old Frenchman was restored not just in the starting line-up, but as a defining player and team leader.
Pogba has already thanked Solskjaer with two assists against Cardiff and two goals against Huddersfield. Paul no longer thinks about leaving United, and the club doesn’t think of breaking up with the player.
The Red Devils CEO, Ed Woodward, places great hopes in Pogba, not only on the field but also beyond. Paul has significant marketing value for the club, and there are very few other stars of this magnitude at Old Trafford at the moment.
Pogba has two full years under his contract now. This means that the moment, when the midfielder will be invited to the negotiating table to extend cooperation, is near.
