LONDON: Manchester United have included a one-year option in Paul Pogba’s contract in an effort to keep the French midfielder at Old Trafford until 2022.
Pogba’s contract expires at the end of the season and recently sparked speculation he could leave United when he admitted it was a “dream” to play for Real Madrid.
But according to today’s report, United acted to ensure Pogba’s service until at least next season by taking advantage of the extension clause in the World Cup winner’s contract.
United did not make an official announcement on the deal but boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer missed a speech at his press conference.
“Paul is our player, he will be here for another two years and I am confident he will focus on doing the best for us and we want to see the best of Paul,” Solskjaer told reporters.
“So in the next few years I am sure we will see the best action from it.”
