Paul Pogba is one of the most important parts of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team at this point of time. After a slow start to the season, the French World Cup winner is now playing some of his best football in a Manchester United shirt.
He is one of the biggest reasons behind the progress that the Red Devils have shown this season, currently sitting at second in the Premier League and in the semi-finals of the Europa League, where they are heavy favourites to make it to the final after a 6-2 win over AS Roma in the first leg of their semi-final tie.
But even then, there is a possibility that Pogba could end up leaving the club at the end of this season. His contract runs out in the summer of 2022 and if they are unable to agree an extension with him, it would not be a surprise to see him depart Old Trafford this summer rather than see him become a free agent a year later.
Earlier in the season, it had looked like he was destined to leave the club. But now, Mino Raiola has provided some hope that Pogba could end up staying if the project is right. As reported by AS, the agent said:
"“With Pogba, what’s really important too is what Manchester United want, what project they are proposing for Pogba. Pogba has always been interested in one thing, winning the Champions League, titles, that’s his objective. And we’ll see if that’s possible at United or at other big European clubs.”"

Is Pogba set to stay at Manchester United?
It does look like Manchester United are on the right path at this point of time. They have shown some tremendous progress this season and have become a very difficult side to beat. And with a couple of good signings, they could be genuine Premier League contenders next season.
There is the possibility that they could lift some silverware by the end of this campaign as well, with them being one of the favourites to win the Europa League this season. If that does happen, it will be the club’s first trophy with Solskjaer as manager.
Thus, could this progress convince Pogba that Old Trafford is the place to be? That is something that only the future will tell and all we can do is wait for the time being.
