Most Manchester United fans have already started preparing for life without French star midfielder Paul Pogba on their team. Pogba, who has been sidelined since December due to an ankle injury, has been constantly linked with a move away from Old Trafford and his departure in the summer seems like a done deal. However, it appears that Man Utd’s boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thinks otherwise.
Speaking with reporters following his side’s 5-0 win over LASK in Europa League, Solskjaer told the media that he expects Pogba to be on his disposal next season.
“Paul’s our player. He has two years left on his contract, a year plus the option of another,” said Solskjaer. “You can expect Paul to be here [next season], yeah.”
Paul Pogba only played eight games in all competitions this season, and he probably won’t be returning to field until 2020/21 as he continues to rehab from an ankle injury. And while Pogba’s absence hurt the team early in the season, Manchester appears that they are clicking on all cylinders in the last couple of weeks following the addition of Portuguese midfielder Bruno Fernandes.
With Fernandes on the roster, Man Utd now could afford to part ways with Pogba, considering they would most likely get a major haul from him. The 26-year-old Frenchman has suitors from all around Europe, with Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus being considered the favorites for his signature.
