Former Premier League midfielder Carlton Palmer has told The Transfer Tavern in an exclusive interview that he expects Paul Pogba to sign a new contract at Manchester United.
Pogba’s current deal is set to expire next year and he is currently being linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
However, according to The Sun, United are ready to make the France international the highest-paid player in England with a new £400,000-a-week contract.
Will Pogba stay at Manchester United?
And now Palmer is expecting him to remain at Old Trafford, believing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will challenge for the title next season.
“I think he’ll stay at Manchester United,” the ex-Leeds United player exclusively told TT.
“They’re going to sign [Jadon] Sancho, they’re going to go big this summer and I think they’re going to be challenging next season. If they get the players in that they’re going for, I think they’re going to be challenging.
“And the one thing is, if you’re going to be challenging for the league title, you can’t be selling one of your best players, Pogba. You really can’t, so I expect to see Pogba renew his contract.”
Pogba has really shown his quality at Euro 2020, winning the Star of the Match award for his display in France’s 1-0 win against Germany.
If that match is anything to go by, United really should be looking to keep the midfielder around, which does seem to be their aim.
