Manchester United chairman, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, would like to see Paul Pogba sign a new club contract.
Pogba has long been linked to a move to Juventus, the former team of Real Madrid. Last year he admitted he was looking for a “new opportunity.”
In an injury-hit season before the COVID-19 lockout, the France midfielder made just eight appearances in all competitions.
The 26-year-old has been impressed since the restart though.
Having recently signed new deals with Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay, Solskjaer is hopeful that the club will also be able to secure the long-term future of Pogba, whose current contract is set to expire next year, while United will be able to invoke a one-year extension.
“I can’t comment on the negotiations between players and the club but we want to retain the best players, of course.
“We want to create a team for the future and Scott and Nemanja are in similar roles but in different stages of their careers-one at the beginning and one very seasoned one.
“In that mid-range community we do need players so hopefully we can do something. I know Paul has been looking better and better since he came back from injury. He’s just having fun playing his soccer and let’s see where it takes us, “Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
