Manchester United have opened talks with Paul Pogba’s representatives over a new contract

Manchester United has begun contract negotiations with Paul Pogba’s representative, while talks with Borussia Dortmund for the sale of Jadon Sancho continue. Pogba will enter the last year of his contract in January and will be eligible to negotiate with clubs outside the Premier League before a possible free transfer in the summer of 2022.

Mino Raiola, Pogba’s agent, has regularly stoked rumours over his future at Old Trafford. He stated last year that the midfielder was “unhappy” with the club and needed to switch teams. However, the 28-year-old soon took to social media to deny any United exit, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also criticized Raiola for his aggressive remarks.

Talks with United are expected to focus on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s strategy to close the gap with Manchester City and the rest of Europe’s elite after the European Championship. If new terms cannot be reached and there is no market for Pogba this summer, United risks losing its £89.3 million record signing for nothing.

Meanwhile, United and Dortmund are still negotiating the transfer of Sancho. There is still a value disparity, but talks are claimed to be going in the right direction, and all parties are more confident about completing a deal this summer than they were last year. When United attempted to recruit Sancho last summer, personal terms were not considered to be an issue.
