Sky Sports journalist Dharmesh Sheth has recently talked about the future of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.
It has been reported recently that Paris Saint-Germain can make their interest in Pogba formal soon and the Frenchman is now unlikely to sign a new deal at Manchester United, with his current contract expiring in 2022.
Sheth appeared on the latest episode of the Tier 1 Podcast from the Stretford Paddock. He talked about numerous issues involving United and one player that he spoke about was Pogba.
Should United hand Pogba a new deal?
The journalist believes that there are still three possibilities for Pogba and talks about a new contract are ongoing.
The Sky journalist stated: “You’re going to think that I’m going to be sitting on the fence here, but I’m told that all options are possible still. His representatives are still talking to Manchester United, so while those talks are still ongoing, there is still a chance, however unlikely he is to sign a new contract, there is still a chance that a new contract could become available.
“Those three options are going to be: he stays at Manchester United and he signs a new contract; or, he leaves Manchester United this summer: or, if you’re looking at it from the outset, it’s probably the third choice – he stays at Manchester United, but he doesn’t sign a new contract.”
TIF Thoughts on Pogba’s future…
Considering that United signed Pogba for what was then a world-record £89 million fee, they’d be losing a lot of money if they let him leave for free. So it is important that they earn some fee from his sale or hand him a new contract.
So if United can’t pay the wages for the new deal, selling Pogba this summer may make sense. They could use that money to fix other positions on the pitch.
