Paul Pogba’s future has come under massive speculation over the course of the past two months and Sir Alex Ferguson was forced yesterday to clear up matters regarding the midfielder’s contract situation with Manchester United.
France Under-19 international Pogba arrived at Old Trafford from Le Havre back in 2009 and has impressed since, earning comparisons to Patrick Viera with his direct, physical play.
However, according to his manager, the rumours of an exit to either AC Milan or Manchester City have come as a result of his representatives.
“He's got an agent who's obviously become a bit difficult but we're negotiating with this agent and we want the boy to stay,” said Ferguson. “If he doesn't want to stay, there's not a lot you can do about it.
“If he'd like to be a Manchester United player then he knows what to do. You hope he gets the right advice but it's also down to the individual.
“Matt Busby summed it up perfectly; you don't need to chase money at a club like Manchester United, it will eventually find you. If you're good enough, you will earn money and become rich playing for United, there's no doubt about it.
“It's one of these situations that they can chase the money early in their career but at the end it's not the same as if they'd stayed here.
“It's the decision the player has to take himself about where they think their best future will be. He just needs to look round about him to realise that.”
