Boost for Manchester United as midfield star performs U-turn and wants to extend stay at club

Paul Pogba of Manchester United

Paul Pogba is willing to commit his future to Manchester United and sit for contract talks, according to the Sun.

The Frenchman has been in exceptional form since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over, but things weren’t great under former manager Jose Mourinho.

The report claims that Pogba wanted to leave the side in the winter window if Mourinho remained in charge.

However, the Portuguese manager was sacked after the defeat to Liverpool, and Solskjaer has won every game in charge.

The report claims that Pogba has two years left on his current deal and makes £290,000-a-week. The Frenchman wants an increase in his new deal to end up close to Alexis Sanchez’s wages of £505,000-a-week, as per the report.

Pogba has scored five goals in his last five appearances for the Red Devils and is possibly playing his best football in the last three years.

The Frenchman’s form has helped the Red Devils close the gap to the top four, and we sit just three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.

Pogba continued his scoring form in our 2-1 win over Brighton, and it will be interesting to see how the second half of the season pans out for club and player.

The Red Devils could still salvage this season with some silverware given we are in the FA Cup and Champions League, and a top four finish is firmly in our sights.
