Premier League: Paul Pogba situation

While there were talks about Paul Pogba moving elsewhere, those speculations have paused. It looks like the French midfielder will sign a new deal with the Red Devils.

Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have both been strongly linked with Pogba, while a potential return to Juventus has also been mooted, but legend Scholes is confident that he will opt to extend his stay at Old Trafford.

I think he’ll stay,” Scholes told Premier League Productions when quizzed on the Frenchman’s future. “I think he will. When he was playing a couple of years ago in a team that wasn’t quite functioning as well as this one looks like it might do, and with the amount of attacking players he’s got, the ability he’s got, I think he’ll add a lot to this team.”

I think he’ll end up signing a new contract. If this team carries on in this manner, progressing like it is – I don’t want to get too excited – but it’s a team that can go on and win trophies and that’s what he wants to do.
