It is safe to say that Paul Pogba is certainly playing some of the best football of his career at this point of time, as Manchester United sit at second in the Premier League table and are also still in the Europa League.
When he joined the Red Devils from Juventus in a then world record move back in 2016, naturally he was expected to become one of the best players on the planet. But while there have been glimpses here and there, he has not quite reached that level yet, at least on a consistent basis.
This season, he has managed to string a number of impressive performances together and is easily one of the best players in the Premier League right now. But there is still one major worry about the French midfield maestro and it is the fact that his contract is set to run out in the summer of 2022.
Not too long ago, it had looked like he was destined to leave the club in the near future. But there appears to be a different feeling about the situation these days. As reported by ESPN, after the win over AS Roma in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final tie, Pogba said:
"“I am feeling happy here. I play on the left-hand side in a kind of No. 8 position — wide, but with freedom when we have the ball. I enjoy playing there. I link up well with Bruno [Fernandes] and Luke [Shaw], and the balance of the team is good too.”"

Pogba staying would be a huge boost for Manchester United
Pogba has been one of the best performers for the Red Devils this season and is one of the biggest reasons behind their successful campaign. And as the club aim to progress even further, they would certainly want to hold on to the Frenchman.
While Pogba is yet to agree a new deal with the club, the recent rumours have certainly been promising. And if he did end up staying at Old Trafford, it would be a massive boost for Manchester United.
Of course, there is also the possibility that he does not do that. In that case, the club must look towards finding him a new club this summer. Otherwise, he will become a free agent in the summer of 2022.
