Paul Pogba is expecting Manchester United to open contract talks once their Europa League campaign concludes.
The midfielder has a year remaining on his current deal at Old Trafford, with the option of a further 12 months.
The Frenchman was linked with Real Madrid and former club Juventus last summer, but now it appears the 27-year-old is willing to sign a new contract at United.
Pogba has missed the majority of the prolonged 2019-20 campaign through injury, but his impressive return to the starting XI this season could yet end in Europa League glory – with a new deal to follow.
“Pogba is happy at United and he’s expecting them to open contract talks once their Europa League campaign is over,” reports Sky Sports News’ Dharmesh Sheth.
“His current deal runs out next summer but United always insert this year option so they don’t get caught out with free transfers.
“It should be said United are in a better position to negotiate with Pogba and the returning Dean Henderson, as it stands from Sheffield United, following the departure of Alexis Sanchez and all of the money his wages have now freed.
“There appears to be a willingness from all parties to get around the table as far as Pogba is concerned.”
