Paul Pogba has dropped a clue that he intends to remain at Manchester United beyond this season as he sent a message to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over his position. The Frenchman appeared to be heading for the exit door at the start of December when agent Mino Raiola claimed his client’s time at Old Trafford was up.
United were furious with Raiola’s comments on the eve of their Champions League group stage decider at RB Leipzig as they dropped into the Europa League following a 3-2 defeat in Germany.
Pogba and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer were said to have engaged in an honest conversation in the following days, in which they put the Frenchman’s long-term future to one side.
His performances soon picked up and by the New Year, United looked genuine title contenders with Pogba playing a key role for his side.

“That’s the next step, that’s what I’m saying. Everything is possible. If you don’t believe, then there’s no point in playing.”
Pogba is starting tonight for United in central midfield alongside Scott McTominay.
Fred has been struggling with injury but Pogba will attempt to stamp some authority on the game.
He has played arguably his best football from the left this season in a new role under Solskjaer.
Yet now he’s been clear that he doesn’t want to keep being moved around United’s XI as it’s disrupting his rhythm.
United are expected to add another midfielder to their ranks this summer.
