Manchester United Have Opened Talks To Extend Paul Pogba's Contract

Manchester United Have Opened Talks To Extend Paul Pogba's Contract

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful Paul Pogba will sign a new deal at Manchester United - with negotiations currently ongoing.

Pogba's current deal expires next summer and the Frenchman has constantly been linked with a move away from the Premier League.

However, Fabrizio Romano has revealed United are in negotiations with the World Cup Winner's agent Mino Raiola.

Solskjaer also addressed the situation and stressed the Red Devils "want to keep the best players."

"I can't comment on discussions between players and the club but of course we want to keep the best players," Solskjaer said per Sky Sports.

"We want to build a squad for the future and Scott [McTominay] and Nemanja [Matic], they're in similar positions but in different stages of their careers - one at the start and one really experienced one.

"We also need players in that mid-range group so hopefully we can do something. I know that since Paul came back from injury he's looking better and better. He's just enjoying his football and let's see where it takes us."

Fellow midfielders McTominay and Matic have signed new contracts in recent weeks with United hoping Pogba can follow suit.

Fernandes moved to Old Trafford in January and has proven to be an inspired signing.

United are currently linked with Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho but Solskjaer stated the coronavirus pandemic may have an impact on this summer's transfers.

"There's got to be realism," he admitted. "I think the whole world has changed both financially and the perception that we've got on values.

"Every time I put the case in front of Ed (Woodward) I think it's a sensible one and it's a realistic one.

"I think I've proven to the club that I've always got the club at the front of my mind. I don't think short term or personally that this would fit me for a short space of time. I'll always think long term and try to make good deals. I'm always quite careful with money - my personal money as well."
