Paul Pogba to extend his Manchester United contract after Ralf Rangnick decision

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has reportedly decided to extend his contract with the club but if they agreed to make Ralf Rangnick their permanent manager.

Man United announced Rangnick has their interim manager last year, after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked in November.

The German boss has been decent since managing his first game against Crystal Palace and there are suggestions that he could stay at the helm beyond his six months deal.

Though Paul Pogba, whose contract will expire at the end of the season and is already attracting interest from PSG and Juventus, hasn’t featured under the former RB Leipzig boss, he has been impressed by the manager’s plans for the club.

What has been reported?

According to The Sun, Paul Pogba is open to staying at Manchester United if Ralf Rangnick remains as boss.

This is because the manager’s vision of the future and the part the France star can take part in it at Man United has won over the player.

What Ralf Rangnick said of Paul Pogba

The German boss had raved about the World Cup winner during his previous interviews and of recent, he resisted the temptation to throw the midfielder, who only returned to light training last week from a muscle injury, into the firing line.

“As far as I know, I was told a week ago, it would be a minimum of at least another four or five weeks before he [Paul Pogba] is fit for training again,” Rangnick told MU.

“It’s one thing to be training fit but, on the other hand, he [Pogba] needs to be fit for the match and competition in either the Premier League or the Champions League and this will still take some time.”
