Ralf Rangnick told Paul Pogba the following during a meeting ahead of the Manchester United star’s injury return.
Following an injury setback at Manchester United, PAUL POGBA faces another month on the sidelines.
After another injury setback, Ralf Rangnick had very specific instructions for Paul Pogba.
With his contract expiring at the end of the season, the Manchester United star appears to be on his way out.
Pogba, the star midfielder for Manchester United, has suffered another injury setback, which will keep him out for another month.
The France international’s contract expires at the end of the season, and his time at Old Trafford appears to be coming to an end with a whimper.
He has, however, increased his efforts to get in shape and has spent time recovering at specialized facilities in Dubai.
He’s also increased his training load and has been working with United’s conditioning coaches, and his recovery has gone better than expected, according to reports.
The £89m midfielder is expected to return to Rangnick’s first-team squad before the end of the month, but he will need time to get match fit.
It comes after an injury-plagued season that saw the Frenchman make just nine Premier League appearances, the last of which was in October, though he still managed seven assists in that time.
But, according to the Mirror, while the Red Devils toil, Rangnick has told Pogba that he will not rush him back and will allow him to fully recover before reintroducing him to the matchday squad.
With his contract expiring at the end of the season, the 28-year-old’s future is still uncertain.
It means that the former Juventus star is now free to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs, including Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, who have previously expressed interest.
Pogba, on the other hand, has told Rangnick that he has no intention of hanging up his boots and is fully committed to returning United to the top four.
In addition, he does not expect to make a decision on his future until the summer, though his agent, Mino Raiola, will continue to search for the best deal.
Pogba’s decision to stay at Old Trafford is still up in the air, but as he approaches his 29th birthday in March, this could be his final chance to sign a lucrative contract.
However, his fitness after an injury-plagued year, during which he suffered hamstring issues, will be a major factor.
