Manchester United Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expects Paul Pogba will sign a new contract extension.
Manchester United Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen to extend the contract of their midfielder Paul Pogba, who has a year left on his current contract.
The 27-year-old has been linked to top big European clubs and was quoted as wanting a “new challenge ” last year.
Pogba was not available for selection in Manchester United team for the better part of this season after he sustained an injury late last year.
But, the French International has been in an impressive form since the return of the Premier League amid the Covid-19, playing a pivotal role in Solskjaer’s team.
Ole Gunnar Solsjaer wants Pogba to follow in the footsteps of Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay who recently penned pen to paper for the Red Devil.
“I can’t comment on discussions between players and the club, but of course we want to keep the best players.
“We want to build a squad for the future and Scott and Nemanja, they’re in similar positions but in different stages of their careers – one at the start and one really experienced one.
“We also need players in that mid-range group, so hopefully we can do something. I know that since Paul came back from injury, he’s looking better and better. He’s just enjoying his football and let’s see where it takes us,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
Manchester United have been heavily linked with Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho as they hope to strengthen their attack, Jack Grealish is another on United wish list.
