The Norwegian manager described his conversations with Pogba as an “open dialogue”, and fans will hope that he pens a new deal after his brilliant recent form for the Red Devils
Latest Twist in Paul Pogba Tale as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Gives New Contract Hope
Good Recent Form
Paul Pogba has looked fantastic in a Manchester United shirt of late.
He has been the difference-maker in many of United’s tight games, providing a moment of brilliance for his team to take home all three points. Pogba has always been capable of this, but consistency has provided a hindrance for the former Juventus man.
Now, though, it seems as though he may have traversed this problem, providing the Manchester side with an immense amount of quality in his best spell yet for the club.
There are few central midfielders in the world who have talent that matches that of the 27-year-old, and the Red Devils will, no doubt, be willing to splash the cash on a new contract, should he opt to stay.
The United manager recently suggested that a fresh contract was still very much on the table.
“We’ve got a good open dialogue with Paul so what we talk about and how we see that situation remains between us,” the Norwegian manager said.
“I’m just happy he’s focused and playing really well. He’s happy within himself and that’s important. You can see Paul enjoying football himself with a red shirt on.
“Our conversations remain private, of course. But for example, Paul is a Manchester United player through and through. He’s been here in two spells. He came as a kid, he’s learned about the history of the club, the passion of the club.
“He wants to do the best for United when he’s here and I think we’ve seen that – that he really cares for his team and he’s trying to be as successful as everyone else.”
This comes after the Frenchman’s agent Mino Raiola made controversial comments on his future with the club in early December: “I can say it’s over for Paul Pogba at Manchester United,” Raiola declared.
Now, though, there seems to be much more hope that Pogba could ink a new deal and extend his stay at Old Trafford.
