Manchester United has received a timely boost in their pursuit to keep star midfielder Paul Pogba with reports claiming that he is open to signing a new deal with the team.
Pogba had flirted with real Madrid for the better part of last summer but the European giants have struggled this season something that is said to have changed Pogba’s perception about the club.
Madrid who faces Sevilla on Sunday have had two wins and two draws in four La Liga matches this season and fell to PSG in their midweek Champions League tie; a streak that has seen some of their fans call for head coach Zinedine Zidane sacking.
History of Managers
The Santiago Bernabéu hot seat notoriously has a history of managers taking their turn to sit with Jose Mourinho rumoured to be lined up for a potential return.
According to ESPN, the Red Devils want to open negotiations over the coming weeks with Pogba, while keen on a move to Madrid, not ruling out extending his stay at Old Trafford.
The World Cup winner hasn’t been at his scintillating best this season and has already picked up a knock that has kept him out of late.
