Nemanja Matic is optimistic Paul Pogba will remain with Manchester United “for a long time”.
The Serbian has formed an impressive midfield trio with Pogba and Bruno Fernandes since the Premier League’s resumption, helping United extend their unbeaten run to 18 matches in all competitions.
Pogba’s future at United has long been the subject of intense speculation, with comments from his agent Mino Raiola causing controversy earlier in a 2019-20 season where he has struggled with injury.
But the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic and the club’s upturn in form since the World Cup winner returned to the pitch to join new signing Fernandes have led to increased hopes he will stay.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has expressed confidence that Pogba – who is contracted until 2021 with the option for a further year – would sign a new deal and Matic thinks his team-mate is enjoying life at the club.
“I think at the moment he is happy,” Matic, who himself signed fresh terms with United this month, said to Stats Perform News.
“When you are injured and outside of the pitch people will always talk and rumours will always be around him, but he can do anything.
“As soon as he came back to training with us and playing I think he has shown that he is happy to play football and he is a great guy.
“I think for me it is very important that Paul stays because that gives us more quality. Also, with his personality, he brings a lot to the team.
“Of course, you never know what is going to happen in life but I see him happy at the moment.
“I wish for him to stay, I wish for the team. It is good he is a great guy for the group, there is always fun around him. I will be happy to see him for a long time at Manchester United.”
