Pogba Will Remain A Man United Player Says Agent
There was a lot of talk on Paul Pogba‘s future with Manchester United over the season but it is now clear that he will not be sold this summer and a new contract discussions will soon start, says his agent Mino Raiola.
The 27-year-old – an £89m signing from Juventus in 2016 – suffered from injuries last season but impressed in patches on his return as United finished third in the Premier League.
Raiola in an interview with reporters said, “United will not accept any bid this summer.
“We’re going to speak about a new contract soon, no stress.”
He also told Sky Sports: “He is key player for Man Utd. They’ve an important project and he’s 100% included.”
“He’s not the kind of guy to create controversy. We need to be calm, especially in such a moment, and we’ll see how it goes.
“We will negotiate for an extension very calmly, without stress. We will continue our talks.”
Pogba, whose deal runs until next summer, made only eight appearances in all competitions before English football was suspended in mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
After recovering from his ankle injury, the World Cup winner played 14 games following the resumption and helped United reach the last four of the FA Cup and Europa League and qualify for next season’s Champions League.
