Manchester United have triggered the one-year option on Paul Pogba's contract in a move that will keep the France midfielder at Old Trafford until 2022.

The contract extension means that Real Madrid will be compelled to pay a few for the player next season if they pursue a transfer for the player that they have already earmarked a potential future "Galactico".

"But, if you are part of Man United as player or staff you're used to this and you have to be mentally strong and for me this period is another chance to prove and tell the players how much we believe in them".

This has led to speculation that the Frenchman is once again unsettled at United and agitating for a move, perhaps the motivation for United opting to trigger the contract extension at this stage, as reported by The MEN.

"Many things have been said".

Of course, every footballer would love to play for Real Madrid and would dream about that. "It's a dream of mine, so why not one day?" Considering he has struggled since returning to training after testing positive for the coronavirus, work needs to be done.

Maguire was under sharp focus after his miserable performance in United's 6-1 home embarrassment to Tottenham, with the scrutiny ratcheting up on Wednesday after he was sent off for England in just the 31st minute.

"Every player goes through hard periods but you have to be strong mentally and we all need to try and get the team back to where it belongs", Pogba said at the time.

'Also if Juventus, Real Madrid or PSG will try again on next years, United will always control the situation and they will eventually sell him before losing Paul as a free agent. Real never made an offer near what the Red Devils wanted.
