Manchester United player returns from loan due to injury
Paul Pogba’s Manchester United future has been a topic of discussion for some time now. The French midfielder is still a big part of Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s first team plans, but his current contract at Old Trafford expires next summer. And it does not appear that he is close to signing a new contract at the moment, which means that it is very possible that he may go as a free agent in the near future.
It is safe to say that this is not what Manchester United fans want to see despite the fact that there have been many questions about Pogba’s recent performances.
He started the season brilliantly and delivered four assists against Leeds United on opening day and he was almost unplayable in the first few weeks. But his form has disappeared since then, and he has even been on the bench at times recently.
Rumors have always surrounded Pogba and a potential Old Trafford exit. But now some surprising news has surfaced about his contract situation at Manchester United.
Manchester United declined the chance to sign Pogba to a new deal in 2019
As reported by the Daily Mail, Manchester United turned down the chance to sign Pogba for a new deal in the summer of 2019, after the French World Cup winner had made a personal inquiry to the club.
The narrative that Pogba has been looking for a way out of Old Trafford for years thus seems to be wrong.
But it remains to be seen what the future holds for Pogba at Manchester United. His 2021/22 campaign has already been filled with ups and downs, and at this point he is not in good shape.
However, there is no doubt about his talent or potential, and in his day, Pogba is one of the best midfielders in Europe. So if one were to leave Manchester United in the future, especially as a free agent, there is no shortage of suitors.
