Paul Pogba expected to sign new Man Utd contract and become club’s ‘leader’

Express

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba will sign a new contract at the club, reckons Spanish football expert Guillem Balague. Pogba has long been linked with a move to La Liga giants Real Madrid but Balague cannot see that deal happening anytime soon.

The France international has started just five Premier League games this season due to an ongoing ankle injury.

Balague says Pogba is keeping his options open but ultimately believes his future is at Old Trafford.

He claims United's coaching staff view the 27-year-old as a potential leader.

"Paul Pogba was a target for Zidane, not so much for the club, and the money involved in that deal means that Real Madrid I don't think have Paul Pogba as a priority," Balague said on his YouTube channel.

"Paul Pogba has suggested both, that he wants to go and he wants to stay.

"So he's playing his cards but at the moment I do feel that a player like him would be better serviced to be at Manchester United where he will be the leader, physically he will be fit finally and it seems like they are at least a stable club right now, there won't be changes, [Ole Gunnar] Solskjaer will stay.
