Phil Neville claims Paul Pogba has made a u-turn on his Manchester United future

Phil Neville believes Paul Pogba will stay at Manchester United for years to come after the Frenchman found a ‘different dynamic’ in the side that he returned to since his six-month injury lay-off.

Pogba had made just two appearances for the club since September as the Premier League geared up for its return earlier this month and despite being the club’s foremost player, it felt as though Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had moved on from the Frenchman and was planning for life without him.

The 27-year-old angled for moves away from Old Trafford in 2018 and 2019, while Juventus and Real Madrid were both heavily linked with a move for him before the pandemic hit.

However, the pandemic has had widespread financial implications on football across the world, meaning large transfers are not expected to occur this summer.


While that’s clearly a stumbling block for Pogba’s supposed desire to exit, Neville believes United’s progress and the arrival of Bruno Fernandes is equally important and he feels Pogba will now stay to prove himself at the Theatre of Dreams.

‘Look before the shutdown I would have said definitely he would leave the club but I think the situation has changed,’ Neville told Premier League Productions.

‘It’s a different dynamic now. I think with the introduction of Bruno Fernandes and the way they’re playing [is positive].

‘The way the trajectory of the team is looking I think Pogba might be thinking ‘I think this is a good team to stay and play in’ and to commit more than he has done in the past.

‘Yes the economic situation has changed but i still think for Paul Pogba, stay at Manchester United, prove yourself, become a great at the club that you joined at 14 years of age.’

Pogba has certainly returned to the side with more vigour following his six month injury lay-off.

The Frenchman appears buoyed by the side’s progress since he last appeared in December and there are already signs of an emerging partnership with Fernandes.

United had valued Pogba at over £100m and while that figure alone would be enough to put off suitors, his wages of £230,000-a-week are another huge stumbling block.
