Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is in the final year of his contract with the club, but he has so far refused to sign a new deal.

Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola is believed to play huge role in ensuring Pogba doesn’t sign that new contract. Pogba has been linked with a move to PSG, but reports now claim the Paris club won’t want to sign him this summer because of their signing of Lionel Messi, but would rather have him as a free agent next season.

However, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that Manchester United fans could be the ones to make Pogba stay, and also revealed that he sold the idea of playing in front of the fans to Edinson Cavani which made him remain at the club.

Solskjaer said after the game: “The last 18 months have been strange. The only interactions have been through media and you’ve watched the games on telly, you haven’t had that feeling of connection.

“So to be reunited with the fans again, like Paul and Bruno today, it’s important. And this is Man United, this is the real Man United, this is how I sold Man United to Edinson for example. I told him you can’t leave after one season playing with no fans.

“Man United is fans and players and everyone together. So short answer: yes [it could influence Pogba’s decision].”
