MANCHESTER UNITED ace Paul Pogba is set to sit down and discuss a new contract, reports claim.
Paul Pogba had been expected to leave United with Jose Mourinho in charge however the Portuguese boss was sacked last month.
Since then, Pogba has flourished under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and helped Manchester United to seven wins in a row.
It’s come with the 25-year-old bagging five goals in his last five games, including a penalty against Brighton at the weekend.
The Frenchman’s contract still has over two years remaining and he is currently United’s second highest paid player.
The midfielder is believed to be earning a mammoth £290,000 per week. That’s behind Alexis Sanchez, who is on £350,000 per week.
And The Sun report Pogba is now willing to sit down and discuss a new deal as he looks to be put on a par with Sanchez.
A United source told The Sun: “Pogba’s agent is ready to end the problems he has had with the club over the last few months.
“He wasn’t over much towards the end of last year. There was a big breakdown of relationships while Mourinho was in charge.
“[Mino] Raiola wants to talk about his clients ongoing future when all the January business is concluded, which won’t be too much.
“There were talks over whether he would go, but there is no chance of that. He looks like he’s the happiest he has been in a long time.”
Pogba has impressed in recent weeks, playing further up the pitch under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
And Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney believes the Norwegian needs to allow the star midfielder to continue to have free reign.
“Well I think with Paul, I watched him come through the academy at United and he’s got a lot of ability, but the difficult time he was going through is, if you don’t have a good relationship with the coach, then it’s difficult to be at your top if you feel like the coach is scrutinising every decision you make, every pass you make,” Rooney told ESPN FC.
“Paul Pogba will give the ball away, he’ll try passes [and] it won’t be the right pass at times, but you have to let him do that because two or three of them passes will create goals, will create opportunities.
“I think he found it difficult under Mourinho. I think a player and a manager with big egos clashed and the outcome was never going to be great.”
