Paul Pogba’s current contract with Manchester United ends in 2022 as he enters his final year at United this summer. Speculations have been rife about Pogba’s immediate future as his agent, Mino Raiola made sharp remarks against United a few days back.

He is one of the biggest assets at the club so they will be keen to not let that happen but Mino Raiola, has openly spoken about how his client will leave this summer and does not want a new deal at United.

“I think everyone in the team and Paul included are just focused on doing as well as we can this season,” Solskjaer said on Thursday. “I don’t think any energy would be used on the speculation.

Of course we’ve got discussions and talks. When you see Paul playing like tonight [against Milan], when you see him come back training, it shows how much he cares for us and how much he enjoys playing and how much we can benefit from having him here.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will look up to Pogba as he still remains an integral cog in United’s midfield. Manchester United fans will hope that their star midfielder stays at the club for a long time as they build for a Premier league title in the near future.
