Paul Pogba would reportedly decide to stay at Manchester United and extend his contract if the club sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager.
The World Cup winner is widely expected to leave Old Trafford in the summer, especially after the public spat which his agent Mino Raiola and Solskjaer have engaged in recently.
Real Madrid and Juventus are considered Pogba’s two most likely destinations, given his existing relationship with Real boss Zinedine Zidane and his previous success at Juve.
However, Spanish outlet Marca are reporting that Pogba could decide to stay put and even sign a new deal should Solskjaer be dismissed.

Solskjaer has repeatedly spoken of his desire to get Pogba fit and firing for United but, given the fallout with Raiola, it seems as though there could be more to the rumours.
Raiola initially hit out at Solskjaer in a Twitter rant for suggesting Pogba is the club’s property, writing: “Paul is not mine and for sure not Solskjaer's property, Paul is Paul Pogba's.

“Before Solskjaer makes comments about things I say he should inform himself better about the content of what has been said. Until now I was maybe too nice to him.
“Solskjaer should just remember things that he said in the summer to Paul. I think Solskjaer may be frustrated for different reasons and is now mixing up some issues. I think that Solskjaer has other things to worry about.”
