Manchester United star in apparent U-turn over transfer away from Old Trafford

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is reportedly stalling over signing a new contract at Old Trafford as he remains keen on a transfer away from the club.

This surprise development comes from a report by Tuttosport, who claim Pogba wants a return to Juventus, with his agent Mino Raiola quoted as recently suggesting they were in no particular hurry to discuss a new deal with United.

Many Red Devils fans could be quite surprised by this apparent U-turn, as Sky Sports recently suggested the France international was now looking increasingly likely to commit his future to the club.

Pogba has endured a frustrating Man Utd career, having failed to really live up to high expectations on his shoulders since he joined from Juventus back in 2016.

The 27-year-old looked a world class performer at Juve and has shown some glimpses of his talent during his time at United, but at nowhere near the same level of consistency.

What next for Manchester United star Paul Pogba?

Still, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could probably do without losing him, so fans will hope there can be more of a positive development on this saga in the near future.

That said, United have also done well to sign Donny van de Beek in midfield this summer, following on from the arrival of Bruno Fernandes in January, so are in a stronger position to cope without Pogba now than they were a year ago.

    Why is this a surprise, pogba has been playing man united for the last 2 years, i stick with my long held belief that Pogba is a virus, has no interest in performing for the team and his aim is only to improve his social media profile, get him out of Old Trafford..

    The sign of a good player is performing well in a team that is not. Pogba does not show that quality. Blend his current fitness level with Fred’s effort and enthusiasm and he might begin to fit in with the ethos of Manchester United. But is that likely? I once thought that Martial would never smile, but he did!

    SEND HIM AWAY
    HE IS A VIRUS FOR THE REST OF THE TEAM
    NO RESPECT FOR THE CLUB
    ONLY HAIRCUTS AND SMILES EVEN WHEN WE LOOSE
    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
