Manchester United will reportedly offer Paul Pogba a new contract – despite his recent comments about the club.
In October, the Red Devils exercised a clause in the Frenchman's contract to extend his current deal by a further 12 months.
Pogba's contract at the Theatre of Dreams was set to expire next summer, meaning he could've walked away from the club as a free agent.
United's decision to extend the midfielder's deal by a further has year has temporarily avoided that scenario from coming to fruition.
It's understood the Old Trafford brass are keen to tie the coveted 27-year-old – who is on the radar of Real Madrid and his former employers Juventus – down to a new contract.
And according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, United will indeed offer the World Cup winner a new deal.
Romano's claim came shortly after Pogba irked the Old Trafford faithful by intimating he's not happy at the club.
"This is a period that I haven't previously experienced in my career, as I've been used to playing all the time and getting into my rhythm, so that's suddenly changed," he told RTL.

"I feel I'm gradually getting back into it now. I'm rediscovering my form. That's the sort of performance that I need to produce and I need to do so consistently."
He added: "[Playing with France] it's like a window that opens up. It's a breath of fresh air when you come here. We have a truly fantastic squad. When we come here, we're all happy.
"We're all pleased to see one another. We really enjoy ourselves on the pitch.
"That doesn't mean we don't enjoy ourselves at club level, but it's not the same here. We're a real family, and we have so much fun when we come here."
Pogba revealed his desire to leave Manchester last summer, admitting he wants to undertake a new challenge.
A move away from the Premier League big boys, however, never materialised for the midfielder – who has been out of sorts this campaign.
Pogba and his Manchester United team-mates will be back in action on Saturday evening, welcoming Premier League strugglers West Brom to Old Trafford.
