Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson will not want to lose another highly touted 18-year-old due to breakdowns in contract talks. SkySports is reporting that Ferguson says his club will re-sign French midfielder Paul Pogba, despite contract negotiations previously falling apart.
Other European clubs are eagerly waiting for Pogba’s contract to expire this summer, when he will be a free agent.
Ferguson, amid the speculation, says he is certain Pogba will re-sign with Manchester United. Pogba, who made his Premier League debut in a 2-0 win against Stoke on Tuesday, has already received praise from Manchester United’s manager.
“Pogba did very well,” Ferguson told SkySports. “The boy has great talent and tremendous physique for an 18-year-old. You can’t believe it.
“We are negotiating his contract at the moment. It is a bit complicated at the moment because he has changed his agent a couple of times.”
The Red Devils’ boss says that Pogba does not want to leave Old Trafford anytime soon.
“…The boy wants to stay, that is obvious. Hopefully we can get it done soon.”
