Man Utd battling to keep Pogba at Old Trafford

Manchester United will try to resume contract talks with young midfielder Paul Pogba despite it appearing negotiations had broken down amid rumours the 19-year-old was bound for Juventus, the Belfast Telegraph reports.

The newspaper adds that the Serie A side were willing to offer Pogba £800,000 per year with a £1.6m deal for his representatives. But after Pogba was named as a substitute for Manchester United against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, coming off the bench in the 72nd minute to replace Paul Scholes, it is thought there may have been a thawing of the ice between the two camps.

Pogba joined United from Le Havre in 2009, a product of the same academy that produced former Liverpool and Atletico Madrid striker Florent Sinama-Pongolle, Real Madrid’s ex-Arsenal and Chelsea midfielder Lassana Diarra and Pascal Chimbonda, the former Wigan Athletic, Tottenham Hotspur and Sunderland defender now with Championship side Doncaster Rovers.
