Man United accept Paul Pogba’s contract decision as midfielder makes call on his future

Published

on

Manchester United’s week could become even worse as they are reportedly ready to accept that Paul Pogba will not sign a new contract.

Pogba’s contract expires at the end of the season and the Red Devils now incredibly appear braced to lose the France international for free. 

United have been stuck in a contract impasse with Pogba for several months, with the midfielder reportedly stalling on a decision.  

It has at times been suggested that he would be open to renewing his stay at Old Trafford. 

But it now appears that Pogba might choose to move on when his deal runs out at the end of June 2022. The 28-year-old can sign a pre-contract with a foreign club from the start of January. 

According to ESPN, United are prepared to lose Pogba for free over the summer despite some indication that he would put pen to paper on a new contract.

It is just five years since United made Pogba the then-most expensive player in the world. He returned to Old Trafford from Juventus in an £89million transfer.  

His Premier League form has at times been inconsistent and was compounded by the red card he received 15 minutes after being introduced during the 5-0 thrashing by Liverpool on Sunday. 

 That result has left Solskjaer’s job hanging by a thread. It is not clear whether Pogba’s decision has been made because of the fact that the Norwegian is expected to remain in charge.

Solskjaer admitted that the defeat against Liverpool, in which his side trailed 4-0 at half-time, was his ‘darkest day’ since his appointment over two years ago.  

“I have come too far, we have come too far as a group. We are too close to give up now.

“I do believe in myself, I do believe that I am getting close to what I want with the club, what we’ve done, what I’ve seen, the development.

“[True] the results lately haven’t been good enough, it’s hands up and that brings doubt in anyone’s mind probably, but I’ve got to keep strong and believe in what we’re doing. 

“Today’s rock bottom [and we’re] low in confidence. Next week is Tottenham away, then it’s a Champions League game at Atalanta and the next team who visits us is Manchester City. We have to make sure we go into the next training session in the right frame of mind.” 

The 48-year-old continued: “It is not easy to say something apart from that it is the darkest day I have had leading these players. 

“We were not good enough individually and as a team we can’t give a team like Liverpool those chances but we did. I am sad, disappointed and angry of course. My emotion doesn’t matter apart from what we do to improve and make sure it doesn’t happen.

“This could go either way, we could sulk or we could come together. The whole performance was not good enough. We created openings, they had chances and they have been clinical. The third goal decided the game.  

“We know we are rock bottom, we can’t feel any worse than this. Let’s see where we take it. You can look at last season when we lose to Spurs 6-1: this is worse, miles worse. 

“This is miles worse for me as a Manchester [United] lad. I’ve got to say we have to get over this as quickly as we can.”

Manchester United are serious about signing a world class star in the form of Casemiro and reports suggest that they are ready to agree a mammoth contract to convince the player.

The famous Spanish news source have mentioned that Man Utd have tabled a five year deal that will make the midfielder earn a net salary of more than £34million (40 million euros).

Casemiro is now in a massive dilemma. United’s offer is so succulent that it guarantees the midfielder and his family’s stability for ‘decades’.

On the other hand, by accepting such a contract, the Brazilian international will have to give up on immediate sporting glory.

Moving to Old Trafford would mean swapping Champions League for Europa League and it is a hard decision to make for someone who is currently a European Champion and has won the continent’s premier competition five times.

AS claim the situation must be resolved soon. If Casemiro gives the green light to leave, then Real Madrid would demand a fee of at least £68million (80 million euros) to sell him.

The Samba star is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world but the Los Blancos have already prepared for the future by signing youngsters like Camavinga and Tchouameni, who can effectively play in the DM position.

At Old Trafford, Ten Hag does not have a specialist holding midfield star and someone like Casemiro will largely improve the squad. However, the question is, should Man Utd spend £68million to sign a player who will turn 31 next year?
