Manchester United still favouring to keep hold of Paul Pogba

Manchester United are keen of holding fresh contract talks with Paul Pogba over the summer as the club wants to keep the French midfielder. Real Madrid and Juventus have been long linked with Pogba, but since the midfielder has returned from injury he has been impressing on United’s midfield.

The club is now hoping that Pogba is ready to commit his future to the club by signing a new contract ahead of favouring a move to the LaLiga or Serie A. After the Premier League season has concluded on Sunday against Leicester City, United and Pogba will be discussing their immediate future.

Securing a finish inside of the top four and thus Champions League football next season could be the decisive factor for Pogba to whether he wants to stay at Old Trafford. The 27-year-old has two years left on his current deal and if he rejects to sign a new contract, United could be forced to sell Pogba next summer to avoid him leaving the club on a free transfer.
