Manchester United are reportedly in ongoing talks with Paul Pogba over a new contract.

Pogba’s future at United has been the subject of speculation for several years, with agent Mino Raiola suggesting the midfielder is ‘unhappy’ at the club and ‘needs a change of scenery’ amid interest from other clubs.

When asked about his future following France’s 2-2 draw with Portugal at Euro 2020 on Wednesday, Pogba said: ‘I’m not thinking about my future, I’m only focused on the Euros.’ 

The report indicates that while several clubs hold interest in the 28-year-old, no official bids have been made.

It was reported earlier this week that United could offer Pogba a staggering £400,000-per-week deal to lure Pogba to stay at the club, which would make him the Premier League’s highest paid player. 

Pogba joined the club as a youngster from Le Havre in 2009 but left for free before making a first-team appearance in 2012 when he joined Juventus and announced himself as a world star.

He won four straight Serie A titles in Italy and was one of Europe’s hottest properties when United re-signed him in 2016 for a then-world record fee.
