- Fred has urged teammate Paul Pogba to pledge his future to Manchester United
- The French midfielder has long been associated with a move away from Old Trafford
- Real Madrid, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are interested in the 27-year-old
- However, Fred wants Pogba to stay and help Solskjaer build a title-winning side
Fred has urged Paul Pogba to promise his future to Manchester United, as the Frenchman is still tied to leaving the club.
Real Madrid, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are longtime admirers of the World Cup winning midfielder and are willing to pay £ 100 million for his services.
Frequently, questions are asked about Pogba’s commitment to the case at United, with Agent Mino Raiola often driving a wedge between his client and club.

However, teammate Fred is desperate for him to stay and believes Pogba will continue to play an important role in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad in the future.
Fred told Brazilian TV channel Esporte Interativo: “Pogba is a great player. The people who are here with him every day know that.
Anyone who has watched the World Cup and watched his football knows he is a great player.
“And we want him to stay. Because he will add us a lot. He is a man of tremendous quality, he is a strong player for the Premier League.
“He knows how to play the Premier League. So I’m sure I want him to stay because I’m sure he’ll help us a lot.

“We are in the same position, but the more quality players in the team, the better. You don’t build a team with 11 players. You need a strong team.
“So I really hope he stays, and if he stays, I’m sure he’ll be a very strong reinforcement for us next season.”
This season has been very frustrating for Pogba as he has been limited to just seven Premier League appearances due to injuries – his most recent appearance against Newcastle on Boxing Day.
Pogba is approaching the final year of his deal at Old Trafford, but United’s leaders can extend his deal by another year to avoid leaving for nothing in the summer of 2021.
