Manchester United ‘already know’ Paul Pogba stance on summer transfer window decision

Paul Pogba has rediscovered fitness and form over recent weeks, but what does that mean for his Manchester United future?

It appears Manchester United are still planning for life without Paul Pogba despite improved performances of late.

The Frenchman has enjoyed an improved spell on the back of the arrival of Ralf Rangnick, with United back in the top four, albeit having played more games than Arsenal.

Pogba has started three of United’s last four Premier League games, scoring one and assisting one, and according to the Manchester Evening News, he is more upbeat of late.

Following a tricky end to his relationship with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the midfielder wasn’t exactly enjoying life at Old Trafford.

But it’s believed he is now in a more upbeat mood having rediscovered fitness and form amid United’s battle for a top four finish.

Even with that, though, it’s claimed Pogba’s position on a new contract has not changed, and it’s still likely he will leave when his current deal expires, at the end of this season.

United are understood to not have continued any contract talks with him, and they are currently planning to sign a midfielder this summer, according to the report.

In the meantime, Pogba will remain part of Rangnick’s plans until the end of the season.

But when the end of the season arrives, it’s expected the Frenchman could depart regardless of his improved form and mood.

Pogba is already free to strike a pre-contract agreement with any club outside England ahead of the summer, but he is not believed to have done so at this stage.
