Pogba ‘Signs Bond’ Of Good Behaviour

Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba has reportedly given his reassurances to the hierarchy at Manchester United that he will knuckle down following his failed move to Real Madrid and will not be a bad influence on the team.

The World Cup winning midfielder spent the summer angling for a move away to Real Madrid, and was widely expected to join Zinedine Zidane‘s side at the Bernabeu.

No such bid materialised however, leaving the English transfer deadline to come and go without Pogba getting his wish.

On the eve of the new season however, Pogba has reassured his side that he will remain dedicated to the cause for United, as report the Mirror

Pogba is likely to be relied upon more than ever this season, after United failed to bring in a central midfielder during the summer window.

Reliable star Ander Herrera departed Old Trafford for Paris Saint Germain following the expiration of his contract, despite manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s wish for him to stay.

The United midfield has been weakened as a result, with Pogba now expected to lead from the centre of the park with the likes of Scott McTominay, Nemanja Matic and Fred beside him.

News of Pogba’s renewed determined will be welcomed by Solskjaer, who is also said to be considering the Frenchman as first choice captain in the absence of Ashley Young.

Young is entering the final stages of his United career, with the club yet to decide a permanent successor for the armband.

Pogba was handed the duties under former manager Jose Mourinho, though a breakdown in the relationship between the pair saw the honour rescinded.

Pogba and United return to action for their opening game of the 2019-20 Premier League season on Sunday, as they welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford. Kick-off at 16.30.
