Paul Pogba to be offered a lucrative new Manchester United contract
It represents a remarkable turnaround for a player who looked to be on his way out just a year ago. Pogba has been excellent since the restart and is once again one of United’s best players.
The arrival of Bruno Fernandes in January can be seen as a pivotal moment of the season. Not only did the Portuguese add quality to the United midfield, but also raised the performance of Pogba. The duo has since gone on to form a solid partnership.
Currently, Pogba is in the final year of his contract, although United have the option of extending it another year.
