BenchWarmers columnist Fabrizio Romano has provided an update on the Manchester United future of Paul Pogba.
Pogba leaving Old Trafford has felt like somewhat of a foregone conclusion for some time now, with the Frenchman’s contract due to expire in the summer of 2022.
Ever since the day he signed along the dotted line with Man United for a second time, Mino Raiola has been openly discussing the idea of Pogba leaving the club.
Considering the precarious nature of his contract situation, the expectation is that Pogba will use that as an easy escape route from the Red Devils, come January or the summer.
However, according to information provided by BenchWarmers columnist Fabrizio Romano, Pogba is yet to make a decision on his future and is NOT close to signing for any other club.
Manchester United are not negotiating with any club to sell Paul Pogba in January, as things stand. No proposal, no swap deals or similar. Contract extension bid still on the table since last July. 🔴 #MUFC

We are purely speculating here, but is there a chance that Pogba has not been inundated with offers in the manner that both he and agent Raiola would have expected?
After all, he is now 28-years-old and struggles for consistency. You wonder if there really is a spot in midfield for him at clubs of Real Madrid’s stature – we’d argue there isn’t.
Of course, there is the possibility that he is just keeping his options open, with the idea of staying at Man United still on the table. Ultimately, we will find out in the weeks and months ahead…
