Some fans can't admit it, but he's the best all-round midfielder in the world on his day. He needs to drop Raiola & off the pitch antics, but I hope he stays. Him & Bruno in midfield would be 🔥 #MUFC

Multiple reports suggest that Paul Pogba might end up staying at Manchester United after the arrival of Portuguese midfielder Bruno Fernandes. The former Sporting CP player has already set the stage alight and has claimed the Premier League Player Of The Month (POTM) in his first month in England. If reports are to be believed, Pogba might sign a new contract as he believes he and Bruno Fernades can form a potent midfield partnership. Pogba's current contract expires in 2021 but it also has a one-year extension option.
Paul Pogba is currently nursing a troublesome ankle injury which has kept him out of action for the most part of the 2019/20 season. Pogba has made only six appearances for Manchester United this season but hopes to return to playing action soon and is expected to join first-team training in the coming weeks. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed that Manchester United will train normally despite the Coronavirus outbreak and the suspension of Premier League and Europa League.
