Paul Pogba is reportedly set to receive a new contract from Manchester United despite the comments he made about the club recently.

The midfielder, who is currently on international duty with France had said in an interview after the Les Blues victory over Portugal last weekend, “I had never known such a difficult period in my career. The France team is a breath of fresh air.

“This group is exceptional, it’s magic. We are a family, we are all very close. We enjoyed the victory against Portugal. The team showed a lot of maturity.”

The comments have been construed to be a shade at United, where he’s struggled to impress this season, leading to an unusual spell on the bench.

However, renowned sports journalist, Fabrizio Romano, has revealed that United don’t take the comments seriously, and they want to offer him a new contract, with his current deal set to expire in 2022.

Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, had also hinted in the past that the midfielder would be willing to negotiate a new contract with United.
