Paul Pogba is reportedly open to signing a new contract at Manchester United after being left impressed by the club’s direction.
In a remarkable turnaround of events, the previously wantaway midfielder is said to be considering extending his stay at Old Trafford after signs of progress from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United side in recent months.
Last weekend’s derby day success over Man City extended United’s unbeaten run to ten fixtures in all competitions, the club firmly in the hunt to secure a top-four finish, while they have moved into the latter stages of both the FA Cup and Europa League.
Pogba had previously been expected to leave the club this summer after agitating for a move away, the midfielder having revealed his desire for a ‘new challenge’ last summer amid reported interest from Real Madrid and former club Juventus.
According to the Daily Mail, however, the 26-year-old is reportedly reconsidering that desire amid United’s recent form, with the France international believing he can thrive at the heart of the Red Devils’ side alongside impressive mid-season signing Bruno Fernandes.
Pogba’s has endured an injury-hit season so far and has made just eight appearances in all competitions, but is hopeful of returning for Thursday’s Europa League clash against LASK after taking part in first-team training this week.
The midfielder currently has two years remaining on his current deal, though the increased optimism surrounding the club could lead to talks over an extension in the coming months.
