Pogba’s brother opens up on Man Utd star’s contract situation as decision looms

Paul Pogba's brother has claimed the Manchester United star still hasn't made up his mind on whether to sign a new contract.

Earlier this week it was reported that Pogba was swaying towards extending his stay after a Cristiano Ronaldo-inspired United thrashed Newcastle 4-1.

The news was a boost to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side with Pogba in the form of his life, having broken a Premier League record by notching seven assists in just four games so far this season.

Last week, reports had claimed United would put the the midfielder up for sale in January if his contract situation wasn't resolved by then – adding that he would push for a move to Real Madrid.

And now Mathias Pogba has said the Red Devils' record signing hasn't yet decided what to do next summer, when his current deal is set to expire.

However, he did say his brother was "feeling very good" at United, who are top of the Premier League after winning three of their first four games.

"Paul has not decided yet whether to stay or not next summer," former Wrexham player Mathias told El Chiringuito TV.

"It’s his decision – he’s feeling very good at Man United now, this season.

"Then let’s see. Let’s see when will be time to decide."

On Monday, The Athletic reported that Saturday's win over Newcastle had had a 'significant bearing' on Pogba's thinking as he weighs up his future.

The publication claimed the World Cup winner was 'leaning towards' extending his stay, impressed by the performance of Ronaldo on his second debut at Old Trafford and by the calibre of summer signings in Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.

Prior to Saturday's win, ESPN reported United would put Pogba up for sale in January if there was no progress on a new contract.

And Mundo Deportivo claimed that Real Madrid would be keen to sign him on a free and the 28-year-old would push for the move.

Pogba's future has been shrouded in uncertainty for some time, with his agent Mino Raiola having said last year it would be best for all parties if his client moved on.

But the France star has carved out a regular role in Solskjaer's side since then – and on Saturday he became the first player in history to reach seven assists in the first four games of the season when he set up goals for Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard.

With 34 games to go in the season, Pogba is almost halfway to the record of 20 assists in a single season previously set by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry and Man City superstar Kevin De Bruyne.
