Paul Pogba has assured Manchester United that he is committed to the club this season, according to ESPN.
According to the report, the Old Trafford giants will be rejecting any further advances for the midfielder during the remaining weeks of the European transfer window.
However, there is a concern within the club that Real Madrid could yet make a bid for the France international with the transfer window in Spain not due to close until the 2nd of September.
Pogba remains keen on a move, however, will remain committed if he does not get his wish in the time that remains in the European transfer market.
Pogba has been linked with a move away from Manchester United all summer long following an interview he gave while away in Japan. Indeed, the midfielder had said that it “could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else”.
Juventus and Real Madrid have been the two clubs interested in the 26-year-old, however, it is thought by the north-west club that the Spanish giants haven’t got the money to afford the club’s asking price of £170m per the Daily Mail.
Pogba was in good form last season as he finished as the club’s top scorer and top creator in all competitions.
It wasn’t just Pogba’s goal contributions that made him a key player last season and this season. The Frenchman was involved in all things both defensively and attacking-wise.
Last season Pogba had the most take-ons, won the most fouls, created the most chances, won possession back the most, played the most passes into the final third and won the most duels, per Opta via Squawka.
If news surrounding his commitment to the club is true, then the club could benefit, if he can match his contribution from last season. After not signing a central midfielder in the summer transfer window, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can ill-afford to lose Pogba, so having him fully focussed is a good thing.
