Report: Pogba assures Manchester United he wants long term stay at Old Trafford

Paul Pogba has assured Manchester United he intends to stay at Old Trafford for the long term.

The United midfielder had recently been linked with a move away from the club, having endured a difficult relationship with former manager Jose Mourinho.

However, the French World Cup winner has flourished since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s arrival as caretaker boss in December, scoring eight goals in 13 league appearances in a sensational run of form.

Solskjaer’s arrival has transformed the club’s fortunes this season, with United in contention to finish in the Premier League’s top four and having advanced to the Champions League quarter-finals.

According to the Sun Pogba has held talks with Solskjaer, advising the Norwegian of his desire to stay at Old Trafford and captain the club in seasons to come.

The decision marks a remarkable U-turn from Pogba, who looked set to leave the club and had been linked with moves to Barcelona and former club Juventus.

The 25-year-old has two years remaining on his current United deal, having signed a five-year contract after his £89m British transfer record arrival from Juventus in 2016.
