EPL: Man United Midfielder On The Brink of Transfer U-TURN

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is reportedly on the brink of making a transfer u-turn on his future at the club.

According to Sportsmail, Paul Pogba is considering the possibility of signing a new contract at Manchester United rather than leave the club this summer. The Frenchman has been strongly linked with a transfer out of Old Trafford in the summer with the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona mooted as his next destination.

Paul Pogba has one year to go on his Red Devils contract plus a clause of an extra year which is at the discretion of Manchester United this making it two years for him. He could sign a new deal in the coming weeks especially if Manchester United are able to return to the Champions League stage.

Manchester United are in fifth spot on the league table and the position would be enough for Champions League football with the two-season European ban slammed on noisy neighbours Manchester City by UEFA. Normally, only the first four teams are guaranteed Champions League football but second-placed Manchester City will have to forfeit their place as a result of the ban.

Paul Pogba is said to be excited with the prospect of linking up with new Manchester United signing Bruno Fernandes in midfield. Bruno Fernandes has been a revelation since his walked through the Old Trafford doors.

The Portuguese midfielder has two goals and three assists in five league games for the Red Devils. He was signed for an initial fee of £47m which could still rise to almost the £70m mark.

Bruno Fernandes has been able to repay a large portion of his huge transfer fee as he is spearheading the push for Champions League football next season.

For Pogba, his return from his ankle injury is expected before this month runs out.
