Brilliant for his start to the season against Leeds (5-1), Paul Pogba is taking his time in negotiations for a new contract with Manchester United. Which opens the door to a departure, this summer or next year.
He likes that, Paul pogba. Dictate the tempo. In the field, the French midfielder delivered a recital, with Bruno Fernandes, in Manchester United’s first match of the season against Leeds (5-1). But also off the field, the native of Lagny-sur-Marne likes when things go at his own pace.
While the leaders of the Red Devils would like to extend his contract, which currently runs until 2022, Pogba is taking his time. According to the Daily Mail, it seems certain that nothing will move in this direction by the end of the summer transfer window, at the end of August. Which opens the door to all speculation.
Real or PSG in 2022?
Yet Pogba has found a smile again in Manchester. The last few weeks, and in particular the nice recruitment made by his club (Jadon Sancho and Raphaël Varane have arrived), convinced him that the project was attractive for the years to come. But as long as the player does not extend, there will always be a doubt.
Pogba is unlikely to move this summer, barring a last-minute offensive from the Paris Saint Germain. But if he does not sign a new contract, the year 2022 promises to be turbulent. PSG, which loves free players, could offer him a golden bridge. And Real Madrid, who courted Pogba every year when Zinedine Zidane was on the bench, should probably come back to the charge. For MU, nothing will be easy.
