Manchester United have not improved their contract offer to Paul Pogba since last summer, according to Sky Sports. The offer is still on the table, and the midfielder is yet to give a definite answer to whether he’ll be staying at Old Trafford beyond the end of this season or not.
United interim boss Ralf Rangnick says he’s aware of Pogba’s importance in his team, but he also believes others are just as important and he sees no point in trying to convince a player who doesn’t want to be there to change his mind. The message seems pretty clear – they want him to stay, but they won’t beg. They’d rather cut their losses on the player they signed for £89 million in 2016.
Represented by Mino Raiola, the 28-year-old has been heavily linked with Real Madrid and Barcelona, but reports coming from Spain in the last month or so seem to suggest both giants have cooled their interest in his services. Be that as it may, Pogba is now free to discuss a free transfer with clubs outside England.
