Manchester United have been highly speculated to be fully involved in the January transfer window due to the arrival of interim manager, Ralf Rangnick, and after the side lost last night at home to Wolves, a fresh claim on Paul Pogba’s future at the club could be a consolation for fans.
Sky Sports Journalist, Ben Ransom, has spoken this morning, giving some much-needed answers to questions on Pogba’s immediate future at Manchester United, giving his perspective on the situation and whether Manchester United could hold onto the midfielder until the end of the season.
Speaking on Sky Sports this morning, Ransom shared a twist to the tale, revealing that he is unlikely to leave over the winter. He said:
“Pogba I’m sure, Mino Raiola I’m sure will be plotting his future, but at the moment it’s too early for Ralf Rangnick to say what’s going to happen this month.
“Given the fact that we’re not expecting Pogba to rejoin full training for another couple of weeks – another couple of weeks for him to be match fit – you’d suggest that points to something being resolved in the summer instead.”
The World Cup-winning Frenchman has had a total of 219 appearances, with an impressive 38 goals and 49 assists on his tally for the Manchester giants, winning two league cups and one Europa League with the club. Thus, fans will surely be delighted that any chance of him leaving this winter has been evaporated.
That said, the £290k-per-week star is still free to discuss pre-contract agreements with other clubs as his current deal ends in the summer, with a number of sides rumoured to be interested in signing the midfielder, including Real Madrid and PSG.
Pogba bagged seven assists in thirteen appearances for United before he was side-lined over a month ago due to injury and given their poor performances since, fans will surely be desperate for his creativity to be injected back into the team under Rangnick, who plays a 4-2-2-2 pressing formation built for creative play.
One fan tweeted after the Wolves game;
“How many more embarrassing performances do we need to have until you lot learn that we don’t know how to play footy without Pogba.”
Consequently, the news that his future will remain at Old Trafford for another few months will surely leave a host of supporters elated.
