Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has reportedly had a change of heart regarding his future at Old Trafford following Bruno Fernandes’ arrival, reports in England say
Heavily linked with a switch away from Manchester, Pogba was understood to be forcing a way out of the ‘Theatre of Dreams,’ with Real Madrid and Juventus both looking to capture his services.
Various injury setbacks have restricted the 26-year-old to just seven Premier League appearances this season, which has seen his influence within the club decrease to the level where Ed Woodward and Co thought about selling him at the end fo the season.
Pogba himself has been angling for a move abroad since the last summer, with his agent, Mino Raiola, accusing the Red Devils of being ‘not good enough’ for his client’s sake.
However, as reported by the Daily Mirror, influenced by Bruno Fernandes’ impact, the Frenchman has reportedly decided to remain at Old Trafford only to form up a top-class midfield partnership with the Portuguese star.

Ever since his £47million arrival from Sporting Lisbon in January, the 25-year-old has managed to turn United’s disappointing season around, helping them cut down the gap on fourth-placed Chelsea to just three points.
Unbeaten in five Premier League fixtures (W3, D2), the three-time Champions League winners are now staking their claim for the top-four finish, which could prove decisive in their efforts to keep hold of Pogba.
Indeed, if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men return to Europe’s most prestigious club competition in Europe, the French World Cup winner could decide to stay put, and the lure of teaming up with Fernandes could be too tempting to resist for the ex-Juventus man.
