Paul Pogba set to sign new United contract

Paul Pogba is set to put pen to paper on a new contract and put speculation over a move away from Old Trafford to bed for this summer at least.

The Frenchman previously targeted by the likes of Juventus, Real Madrid and Manchester City has agreed a new five-year deal, with United set to announce the deal at the end of the campaign.

The Les Blues midfielder had his future at the club filled with uncertainty with super agent Mino Raiola offering the star to other clubs on a number of occasions.

However, the €150m price tag slapped on the player’s head by the club stopped any interest from becoming more concrete.

Since his big money move in the summer of 2016, the former Juventus star has been highly inconsistent with his most profilic season coming in the 18/19 campaign.

The arrival of Bruno Fernandes has made Pogba relieved of the creativity burden allowing him to drop deeper to dictate play which he has excelled at.

He has seemed more hungry, has more quality on the ball and looks alot happier playing alongside the Portuguese than at any other point during his stay at the club.

Forming a great partnership with Bruno Fernandes, the limelight and the pressure has been taken off Pogba, helping the Frenchman perform well.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer earlier suggested he is “99% certain” Paul Pogba will stay this summer, according to OTBSPORTS​.
