Manchester United defender Raphael Varane hopes Paul Pogba remains at Old Trafford amid PSG rumours and uncertain future and warned that United have the quality to win any trophy.
Man United gambled to let Pogba walk into the final year of his current deal, knowing that they could lose him for free at the end of the season.
The France star has been linked with moves to top sides in the past, with PSG showing interest in the former Juventus forward in the summer.
According to reports, Pogba has not agreed to extend his deal with Manchester United but he is enjoying life at Manchester, thanks to the club’s summer recruits of Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.
Also, a few reports emerged this week claiming that United are willing to make the World Cup winner the most paid player in Premier League history, with the midfielder set to pocket around £460,000-a-week.
Raphael Varane advises Paul Pogba
“Of course it is his decision, but I hope he stays here for a long time. He is a fantastic player, so I certainly hope he stays,” the Frenchman told TV2.
Both Varane and Pogba talked about joining Manchester United and the former Real Madrid defender revealed he discussed life at United and the ambitions of the club with the United midfielder.
“I did not have to convince myself that I should travel here, but we talked about the club to find out what it is like to be here every day,” said Varane. “It was important for me to listen to their opinions about the club, the team and their ambitions.
Varane has warned that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s current squad has what it takes to challenge for the top honours both in Europe and England.
That has always been Pogba’s desire – to challenge for the top titles. The French defender has hinted to his compatriot that what he has been searching for is currently at Old Trafford.
What Raphael Varane said about United’s squad
“I honestly think there are enough qualities and skills in this group to fight at the top, both in Europe and in England,” added Varane.
“For us, it’s about creating a collective chemistry and strength, that’s what you need. But here is all the potential in the world and we have everything we need to win “
