Pogba has been requested by Manchester United to hold off on making a final decision regarding his future until the club has appointed a new manager.
This is according to rumors in the British press. According to ESPN, the Red Devils would like the midfielder to put off making a decision regarding his future until the club has appointed a new manager.
Manchester United officials are hopeful that their choice of manager will persuade Pogba to stay at Old Trafford and sign a new contract, according to the report.
Pogba’s predicament at Old Trafford has been a talking point for months because he has yet to sign a new contract and his current one is set to expire in the summer.
According to the same report, United football director John Murtough has advised Anthony Martial and Donny van de Beek, who both left Old Trafford on loan last month, to postpone decisions regarding their long-term futures until a new manager is appointed.
Manchester United named Ralf Rangnick as interim manager following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer until the end of the season, but the article implies that the German is open to continuing at Old Trafford for another year.
Pogba enjoyed a strong start to the season before suffering an injury while on international duty with France in November, which forced him to miss the rest of the campaign.
The 28-year-old, who is expected to return to action soon, had seven assists in his first nine Premier League games this season, but has not played for the club since a 2-2 Champions League tie with Atalanta in early November.
