Nemanja Matic has expressed optimism that our midfield maestro, Paul Pogba, would remain at Old Trafford for the foreseeable future.

The Frenchman has been in the thick of transfer rumours for a long time, but now seems focused, especially since the restart, and has added more quality to Manchester United with his eye-catching performances in our matches.

Speaking recently to Stats perform News, Matic said of his teammate: “I think at the moment he is happy.

“When you are injured and outside of the pitch people will always talk and rumours will always be around him, but he can do anything. As soon as he came back to training with us and playing I think he has shown that he is happy to play football and he is a great guy.

“I think for me it is very important that Paul stays because that gives us more quality. Also, with his personality, he brings a lot to the team. Of course, you never know what is going to happen in life but I see him happy at the moment.

“I wish for him to stay, I wish for the team. It is good he is a great guy for the group, there is always fun around him. I will be happy to see him for a long time at Manchester United.”

United is currently enjoying a 18 match unbeaten run across all competitions. Since the restart, our players seem particularly rejuvenated, and Pogba is believed to be in an entirely different state of mind.
