Manchester United midfielder more open to signing contract extension after impressive summer recruitment

Paul Pogba has been impressed by Manchester United’s recruitment over the summer and is now more open to signing a contract extension. Talks will continue between Pogba’s representatives and United over his future, with the France international inside the final year of his contract at Old Trafford.

It is understood that while no decision has been made, the 28-year-old is coming around to the idea of extending his stay in Manchester after seeing the arrivals of Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane, and Jadon Sancho. Ronaldo’s homecoming in Saturday’s 4-1 Premier League win over Newcastle saw the Old Trafford crowd at fever pitch, with Pogba assisting twice to take his tally to seven for the season in just four matches.

United is still unbeaten after four games this season – winning three of those – and sits top of the Premier League table. Sky Sports News reported last month that Pogba was unlikely to sign a new contract during the summer transfer window – but that fact did not rule out an extension at some point. Pogba continues to have a fantastic relationship with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the rest of the coaching staff and players. He loves the club but wants to make the right decision for himself and his family. It is clear that he is more open to committing to United compared to nine months ago when his agent, Mino Raiola, claimed it would be best if he left the club.

Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are among a number of clubs that are interested in signing Pogba on a pre-contract agreement in January.
