Manchester United have reportedly made a contract to Mino Raiola to discuss the possibility of French midfielder Paul Pogba signing a new long-term deal with the 20-time English champions.

Pogba was heavily linked with a switch away from the Red Devils during the summer having expressed a desire to seek pastures new ahead of the 2019-20 season.

The 20-times English champions ultimately refused to sell the Frenchman, though, and he will now stay at Man Utd until at least the January transfer window will be re-opened.

According to L’Equipe, Man Utd are exploring the possibility of extending French midfielder’s current contract at the club, which has seen them approach the agent of the midfielder.

Raiola is believed to have pleaded with the Red Devils to sell Pogba in the summer transfer window, with La Liga giants, Real Madrid seemingly determined to land the 2018 World Cup winner.

France international midfielder has two years left on his current deal with the Red Devils with the English giants, who also have the option to trigger one-year contract extension should a new contract not be agreed.

The French midfield maestro was an ever-present for the Red Devil’s during pre-season despite the speculation surrounding his future, while the ex-Le Havre midfielder has played every minute of their four games in the English top-tier.
