Man United preparing long-term contract for €80m-rated Frenchman

Man United are reportedly preparing to offer Paul Pogba a new long-term deal. France international rejoined the Red Devils from Juventus in 2016, four years after he opted to depart Man United’s youth academy in a transfer which saw the Red Devils’ hierarchy splash out £95m.

However, after a series of inconsistent displays mixed with public comments suggesting he may be looking to move on from Man United, Pogba has come under intense fire. Despite recently triggering a one-year deal extension in their star midfielder’s deal, Paul’s long-term future continues to be the subject of much speculation.

The latest in the ongoing saga came from the man himself who spoke to French broadcaster RTL after his country’s recent 1-0 Nations League win over Portugal.

The 27-year-old midfielder’s comments did not go down well among the Red Devils faithful as the club’s loyal fanbase continue to question his motives for staying at a club he clearly is not happy at or committed to.

However, in another recent social media post from Romano, the journalist has revealed that the Frenchman’s comments have been taken out of context and Red Devils are planning on offering him a deal within months. It does beg the question of why the Red Devils hierarchy are so keen to keep a player on their books who seemingly wants out.
