Manchester United star Paul Pogba wants to stay at Old Trafford amid interest from Real Madrid and Juventus, reports say.
According to Sky Sports, as per @utdreport, Pogba is happy at the Theatre of Dreams and is waiting for the club to open discussions with Mino Raiola when the Europa League campaign is concluded.
Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident the club can convince the 69-cap France international to sign a new deal. His contract is set to run out in 2021, although the Red Devils retain the option to extend the deal by another year.
While Juve, his former club, and Zinedine Zidane’s side have both been keeping tabs on the French midfielder, it looks like they will have to look elsewhere instead.
It is understood that all parties want to sort out a deal, while Ed Woodward will hold talks with Raiola to reach an agreement. He was widely expected to leave this summer after his controversial agent fuelled the fire in February, but relations between Raiola and the board are believed to have thawed dramatically.
Pogba has formed a promising partnership with Bruno Fernandes in the midfield, which has reportedly played a part in changing his mind.
Unsurprisingly, many United fans are delighted by the “fantastic” transfer update on the “maestro”, with one supporter having “tears in my eyes.” Indeed he is a vital player for the club, who has netted 32 goals and provided 33 assists in 163 appearances to date.

Fantastic. Bruno gets all the credit but Paul is pivotal as well. Big love to the maestro.
