£300,000-a-week midfielder set to pen long-term contract with Man United

Man United midfielder Paul Pogba is considering a U-turn on his deal situation and is leaning towards signing an extension with the Red Devils. Signed from Juventus in a club-record deal back in 2016, France international hasn’t always been able to perform at his best for the Red Devils during his second stint with Man United.

While there have been many positive moments, they have not come as consistently as supporters would have liked. However, things have taken a turn for the better since the turn of the year as Pogba played a big role in Man United, finishing as the runners-up in the PL and the Europa League last term.

Paul has made a superb start to the new season, having bagged a whopping seven assists in four PL games. The 28-year-old midfielder’s future, however, has been a subject of discussion for quite some time now, considering that the footballer entered the final year of his deal with Man United.

His agent, Mino Raiola, hinted in December last year that he would not be renewing his contract at Man United. There have been few indications from the French midfielder himself over the possibility of an extension.

It is claimed that the World Cup winner is now reconsidering his deal situation and is, in fact, leaning towards the possibility of signing a new contract. This turnaround has been brought about by Man United’s effective recruitment in the summer transfer window.
