Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly no longer sure about trying to tie Paul Pogba down to a new contract at Old Trafford.
The France international has had a mixed spell at Man Utd since joining from Juventus in 2016, and is now edging ever closer to becoming a free agent, with his current deal due to expire at the end of this season.
According to Marca, both Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are alert to Pogba’s situation, with Solskjaer’s stance on the player possibly set to be key.
The report suggests that the Red Devils boss has had a major change of heart regarding Pogba’s future at the club, with the Norwegian tactician initially pressing to get him tied down to a new deal, whereas he’s now not so sure.
This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, with Pogba simply not consistent enough for most of his United career, and with Solskjaer often seeming to struggle to find the player’s best position.
The 28-year-old has played as a defensive midfielder, an attacking midfielder, and even wide on the left towards the end of last season and the start of this one.
As good a player as Pogba can be on his day, it just hasn’t worked out for him in the Premier League and it surely makes sense for him to try a new challenge now, and for Man Utd themselves to move on and try to build their midfield around someone else.
