Manchester United have started the season brightly as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side defeated Leeds United 5-1 in our opening game of the season.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba was in top form in this game and he set a record of four assists — the first of any Manchester United player in the Premier League.

Pogba’s future has been up in the media all summer, and it’s unclear where his future lies as he’s now in the final year of his contract with Manchester United.

Following the win over Leeds, former Manchester United Paul Scholes has said he believes Pogba will sign a new contract, stating he’d be impressed with the recent structure of the team.

“I think he’ll stay,” Scholes told Premier League Productions after the match. “I think he will.

“When he was playing a couple of years ago in a team that wasn’t quite functioning as well as this one looks like it might do, and with the amount of attacking players he’s got, the ability he’s got, I think he’ll add a lot to this team.

“I think he’ll end up signing a new contract. If this team carries on in this manner, progressing like it is – I don’t want to get too excited – but it’s a team that can go on and win trophies and that’s what he wants to do.”
