The Red Devils are seemingly finding it hard to convince the World Cup winner, who has entered the final year of his contract, to renew.

Manchester United continue to hold discussions with Paul Pogba over a contract extension, informs Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

It has been suggested Pogba has his heart set on leaving United, with the midfielder reportedly a subject of interest for Paris Saint-Germain.

In other news, the 28-year-old turned down a new contract offer from United this week that would’ve considerably increased his wages from £250,000-a-week to £350,000-a-week.

Now, Man United could be forced to cash in on him this summer as they risk losing their record €105 million signing for free in the next one.

However, Solskjaer, who himself committed to a new contract at Old Trafford recently, has played down talks of the player leaving the club.

“The talks are ongoing between Paul’s representatives and the club’s representatives,” stated the Norwegian after Man United’s 4-1 pre-season friendly loss against Queen Park Rangers, per Sky Sports.

“All that I’ve ever heard with Paul is he’s looking forward to the season.”

“There’s always speculation about Paul, the talks between Paul and his representatives, I’m not in the detail of every single one, I’ve got nothing to say really, about that.

“There’s always speculation about Paul and always clubs being interested and we’ve seen Paul at his best, Paul knows what we feel about it and I’ve enjoyed my time working with him and hopefully we can continue working together.”
