According to David Ornstein of Atletico, Paul Pogba, who is in the final year of his contract with Manchester United and has been linked to the departure, is now closer to deciding to put his future back at the club.
The midfielder is reportedly of interest to Real Madrid, with president Florentino Perez considering a move as he strives to establish a new “Galactico” era at the Santiago Bernabeu. However, it looks like United’s unbridled win over Newcastle on Saturday made a big impression on the 28-year-old Frenchman, who scored an excellent performance in the match alongside newly returned superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. The arrival of the Portuguese superstar at Old Trafford after a 12-year absence also seems to have played a role.
In the current situation, Pogba is free to speak with other clubs from January 1, but there is now growing confidence at United that a new contract will be agreed and signed long before the end of the year.
