Both Man United and Paul Pogba are yet to make a decision on the footballer’s future at the Theatre of Dreams, with that matter now firmly taking a backseat. With the France international’s deal expiring at the end of next campaign, discussions over a new contract will not take place until the end of the current season.
That’s a smart move by all sides, especially the Red Devils, they can’t afford to take any attention away from the title challenge they’ve found themselves in after grinding out the results.
Red Devils sit top of the PL table, two points ahead of cross-town rivals Man City who boast a game in hand one that won’t disappear anytime soon with their expected progress in the FA Cup. Paul has been crucial for the Norwegian coach’s side as of late, the star has recorded the game-winning contribution in three of their last four PL encounters.
Pogba won the controversial penalty that Bruno Fernandes put away to overcome a resilient Aston Villa side, the creative midfielder followed that up with winners against Burnley and Fulham in matches that were perhaps far too closely-contested for the Red Devils supporters’ liking.
Nonetheless, results are what counts and that has been the trend for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men since the turn of 2020 and Bruno Fernandes’ arrival, this team are grinding out wins, in situations where they perhaps would’ve fallen short in the past, all coming whilst heated rivals Liverpool have been dropping points.
On the note of the 27-year-old midfielder’s impressive form, it appears as though the appointment of the Red Devils legend Darren Fletcher has had a massively positive impact on the World Cup winning footballer.
