Manchester United have endured a disappointing start to the season, managing only two wins in the first seven league matches.
Paul Pogba made five starts this season and has struggled to impress in most of the fixtures. The midfielder’s wish to leave the Red Devils in the summer was not accepted by his club.
Calciomercato claims Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are ‘doing everything’ to convince the France international to sign a new deal. His contract expires in 2021 and United have an option to extend it by a year.
As of now, there has been no progress and even if the 26-year-old’s ends up extending, it’s stated his intention is to still leave the club.
Though Real Madrid are still chasing Pogba, the Italian website claims the player’s desire is to return to Juventus because he felt loved in Turin, where he spent four years between 2012-16. Pogba still remains in contact with a few of his former teammates.
In contrast, Pogba’s situation at Manchester United is ‘increasingly disappointing’ and his relationship with Solskjaer hasn’t taken off.
For Juve to sign Pogba in 2020, several conditions must fall in place, including the Frenchman’s salary and United lowering their demands to €140m.
Clearly it isn’t easy for Juventus to re-sign Pogba and for now, United would put all their efforts into convincing him to continue at the club.
