Paul Pogba’s status update from Ralf Rangnick could give the Manchester United star more time to finalize his summer transfer plans.

Paul Pogba’s contract with Manchester United expires at the end of the season, and interim manager Ralf Rangnick’s latest update on the Frenchman hinted at his future with the club.

The latest Paul Pogba injury update from Ralf Rangnick could give the Manchester United midfielder more time to arrange a summer transfer.

Pogba’s future at Old Trafford has been uncertain for months, with his contract set to expire at the end of the season and no new deal in place.

United had reportedly offered the Frenchman a new contract that would make him the highest-paid player in Premier League history in an attempt to keep him.

Rangnick’s latest remarks, however, make it clear that Pogba will not return from injury this month and that he is free to speak with foreign clubs.

“As far as I know, I was told a week ago that it would be at least another four or five weeks before he is fit for training again,” Rangnick told the United website.

“I saw him this morning before the workout, in the locker room, and I’m hoping he’ll be back as soon as possible.”

Pogba has been out since November due to a hamstring injury he sustained in training while on international duty with France.

“Right now, he isn’t part of the training group,” Rangnick continued, “and even if he returned in two, three, or four weeks, it will take some time.”

Let us know if Paul Pogba will stay at Manchester United beyond the end of the season in the comments section below.

“It’s one thing to be training fit, but he also needs to be fit for the match and competition in the Premier League or the Champions League, which will take time.”

Pogba is free to speak to foreign clubs and sign a pre-contract agreement to join them in the summer now that his contract is in its final six months.

Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford for some time, with French giants Paris Saint-Germain being heavily linked with a summer move for him.

United may lose Pogba for nothing in the summer after paying a club record £94.5 million to re-sign him from Juventus in 2016.
