After months of speculation, reports in France are claiming that Paul Pogba is determined to stay at Old Trafford and prove his worth.
The Frenchman has been linked with a move away from Manchester United for a number of months after a breakdown in his relationship with Jose Mourinho.
Having started last season in fine form, Pogba’s problems seemed to start following his return from a hamstring injury which kept him out of almost three months of action. Upon his return, the £89 million man struggled to regain his form and even lost his place in the starting lineup to youngster Scott McTominay.
Aside from his second-half performance against Man City in the Manchester derby, the Frenchman didn’t really make an impact for United but returned to form in sensational style, helping France to World Cup glory over in Russia.
He was subject interest from Barcelona during the transfer window, with United rejecting a derisory bid from the Catalan giants.
Now, according to RMC Sport, while the 25-year-old has had doubts about his future, he has taken the advice of France manager Didier Deschamps and has decided to stay and fight for his place at Old Trafford.
He only returned from his post World Cup holiday last Monday, and despite not being expected to feature, Jose Mourinho revealed that Pogba made himself available to start United’s Premier League opener. He went on to score the opening goal of their 2-1 win against Leicester, putting in a dominating performance in the middle of the park after being handed the captain’s armband by his manager.
