Should Man Utd let Paul Pogba as contract deadline and free transfer looms
Since Paul’s contract at United expires next summer, his representative, Mino Raiola, will be allowed to talk with international clubs beginning January 1.
United want to make a decision on his future by the end of the year.
That puts Paul in a strong position, but if the festive season passes without a contract extension in place, United will at least know whether or not to try to sell him in January.
United is desperate to keep him and has offered him a weekly salary of roughly £400,000.
United remains optimistic that he would commit his future, despite the fact that negotiations with Raiola are always difficult.
Solskjaer delighted with Pogba’s strong start to the season
United want his future sorted before the turn of the year to avoid his predicament being a distraction for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The 28-year-old has started the season in good form for United, with seven assists in eight appearances in all competitions.
Last month, the Norwegian heaped praise on Pogba, emphasizing how essential he is to his ambitions.
“We’ve seen that Paul wants to contribute,”Solskjaer said after the 1-1 draw with Southampton, during which Pogba contributed an assist.
