Despite leaks to the press which have got Sunday newspaper’s saying Paul Pogba’s time at Manchester United is reaching a rapid conclusion, reports in France have emerged saying quite the opposite.

A report from RMC claims that Pogba instead wants to remain at Old Trafford, and become a leader for the next generation. Presumably due to the fact he has been personally stung by criticism over the last couple of years, Pogba feels he could step up as captain.

Moreover, the publication says the midfielder has not even asked for a pay increase. If there is a note of caution to go with these reports, they do appear similar to the ones which appeared earlier in the week, which came before Pogba’s social media comments which caused such a stir.

From RMC:
