Pogba ‘excited’ by Man Utd direction but has huge decision to make
Paul Pogba is reportedly ‘excited’ by the direction United are heading in – but faces a huge decision as he weighs up his future.
Pogba has been linked with a summer move to Paris Saint-Germain, having entered the final year of his Old Trafford. contract.
But the France midfielder can still see a long-term future with the Red Devils, according to Sky Sports.
The 28-year-old has yet to commit to a new deal, but is said to ‘love the club’, and has been impressed by the signing of Jadon Sancho and the imminent arrival of Raphael Varane.
And even if he does not sign a new contract by the end of the summer transfer window, he could still put pen to paper before his current one expires the end of next season.
However, Pogba knows his next contract could be the last big one he signs in his career – and so is likely to take his time as he figures out his best move.

He has been linked with interest from Juventus, AC Milan, Napoli, Lazio and Roma – but a report from Italy claims he is hankering after a move to the Red Devils
United would be his dream destination despite his links with the blue half of Manchester, according to Calciomercato, cited by the Daily Star.
Solskjaer’s side are close to completing the signing of Varane from Real Madrid, and there is no indication they are also interested in Boateng.
However, the 32-year-old can play at right-back as well as centre-back – so he could be an option worth considering if the Premier League giants fail to land Kieran Trippier from Atletico Madrid.
‘Nine stars for sale’ to fund Camavinga and Trippier swoops
Nine United players have been put up for sale as the Red Devils look to fund moves for Trippier and Eduardo Camavinga.
Trippier and Rennes midfielder Camavinga are the next targets in Solskjaer’s sights once the signing of Varane has been confirmed.
United are also believed to be interested in Bayern Munich’s Leon Goretzka – but according to ESPN they will look to sell players before bringing in any more new recruits.
The publication states that Jesse Lingard, Brandon Williams, Anthony Martial, Diogo Dalot, Phil Jones, Alex Telles, Andreas Pereira, Daniel James and Axel Tuanzebe have all been made available for the right price this summer.
If Pogba were to leave as well, the Red Devils could raise around £100m from player sales – which would be enough to fund late swoops for both Trippier and Camavinga.
