During the UEFA Champions League pre-match press conference, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said whether Paul Pogba will sign an extension. 

Even though his contract ends next summer, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident Paul Pogba will end up signing a contract extension. Perhaps things weren’t as clear a year ago for the French midfielder. He was getting closely followed by Real Madrid as he wanted to someday play under Zidane’s orders. But 12 months can make a world of difference at any football club, especially one as huge as Manchester United.

Paul saw how in a matter of weeks, everything changed for the better with the Red Devils. Today, they are considered a top title contender in all tournaments thanks to the arrivals of some major stars. First of all, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane arrived to reinforce the club. An improved Jesse Lingard returned from a small spell at West Ham United. But the cherry on top was Cristiano Ronaldo for sure. Ole is convinced that Paul will end up signing a new contract before the end of the season. 

Ole is confident with Paul Pogba’s future. 

As per ESPN, Solskjaer said the following about Pogba’s future: “It’s up to us now to get results and to prove to ourselves we can win trophies. Everyone who signs for Manchester United wants to win trophies. To be a part of a winning Man United team, it’s the most magical feeling in the world. Everyone’s just focusing on doing our best and let’s see where we go. Paul has come back in good shape and he’s worked really hard over the summer, he came back lean and fit.

“What does an assist consist of? A square pass and Bruno [Fernandes] hits the top corner or when Paul plays a great pass through and Mason [Greenwood] runs through? Paul has always been a top passer, one of the best in European football, he’s probably got assists from not his best passes this season. I don’t count assists. I would give Anthony Martial an assist for Jesse Lingard’s goal [against Newcastle], when he leaves the ball, like [Dwight] Yorke and [Andy] Cole.”
