Paul Pogba is ‘leaning’ towards changing his mind and signing a new deal with Man United, according to The Athletic.
The French midfielder’s current contract expires next summer and so far, the sides are not especially close to reaching an agreement – even though United have already made a concrete offer.
However, the club’s successful transfer campaign and the immediate impact Cristiano Ronaldo has made mean there’s a strong chance Pogba will reconsider his future.
Among many factors the 28-year-other would take into account, one is how successful United are this season – and the recent events, including the 4-1 win over Newcastle, have had a profound effect on the player’s thinking.
From January, Pogba can talk to foreign clubs, with his potential suitors including Real Madrid, Juventus, and PSG, so Man United need to act quickly to avoid losing the star midfielder for free.
So far this season, Paul Pogba has recorded 7 assists in just 4 games, including 5 in the opening 2 Premier League games.
