Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful that Paul Pogba will agree to sign a new deal with the club.
The 28#6-year-old French World Cup winner has made no secret of his desire over the past 12 months to move away from the Premier League side in search of a new challenge, with both Real Madrid and former club Juventus linked with him.
At one point it seemed inevitable that he would leave United this summer, but now it seems highly unlikely that anybody will come close to meeting his pre-coronavirus valuation of £150 million, even if his market value may have diminished since then.
And now that Pogba is back playing again and is injury-free, Solskjaer is hoping that the midfielder will be tempted to stay, having begun to forge an effective partnership with Bruno Fernandes, and seeing growing evidence of United’s title ambitions. The Norwegian said “we want to try and keep the best players at the club and hopefully we can do something”.
