Pogba will STAY at Man United because this team 'can win trophies'

Manchester United's ability to now compete for trophies on all fronts will see Paul Pogba extend his stay at Old Trafford, predicts Paul Scholes.

Pogba, who has previously attracted interest from Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Real Madrid and Barcelona, is out of contract at the end of the 2021-22 season.

Discussions over a new deal between United and Pogba's agent Mino Raiola have not resulted in an extension but Scholes believes the quality of United's squad will convince the Frenchman to stay.

'I think he'll stay,' Scholes told Premier League Productions on Saturday night.

'I think he will. When he was playing a couple of years ago in a team that wasn't quite functioning as well as this one looks like it might do, and with the amount of attacking players he's got, the ability he's got, I think he'll add a lot to this team.

'I think he'll end up signing a new contract.

'If this team carries on in this manner, progressing like it is – I don't want to get too excited – but it's a team that can go on and win trophies and that's what he wants to do.'

Pogba showed all his qualities in the season opener when he produced four assists in United's 5-1 rout of Leeds.

He managed just four league assists in the past two seasons and has often been criticised for a lack of consistency during his second go-round at United.

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows he will need Pogba at his best to take the challenge to champions Manchester City in the title race this season.

Asked to comment on Pogba's performance, Solskjaer told BT Sport: 'I've had a great relationship with Paul all the time, today was just about "go out there and enjoy yourself", we gave him the freedom to roam.

'All the best players want to feel our trust in them and confidence. He can create moments out of nothing and I was impressed with his fitness.'

Pogba lifted the League Cup and Europa League in 2016-17 after rejoining United from Juventus but the £89million midfielder has failed to win any silverware since.
