Paul Pogba is now leaning towards staying at Manchester United, with talks over extending his current deal expected to take place in due course, according to reports.
The 28-year-old has less than 12 months remaining on his current deal and that has led to fears at Old Trafford the World Cup winner could depart on a free transfer next summer.
But The Athletic claim United’s 4-1 victory against Newcastle on Saturday has had a significant bearing on his thinking about his future and could now be set to stay with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.
Paul Pogba is now leaning towards staying at Manchester United, according to reports
Saturday’s win against United, which saw Cristiano Ronaldo (centre) score twice, is said to have impacted the midfielder’s thinking about his future positively
Pogba took his tally of assists this season to seven in just four top-flight matches after laying on Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard’s goals against Steve Bruce’s men.
But the day belonged to Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored either side of half time and gave United the lead on two occasions on his second debut at Old Trafford.
And the report claims those events are believed to have had a significant positive impact on Pogba, with the feeling now that the midfielder staying at the club is becoming a realistic possibility.
