‘This year we have two goals: go for the Europa League and the FA Cup’: Paul Pogba focuses on silverware for Man United this season as the midfielder refuses to use his future as he plans to open new contract talks
- Paul Pogba has been thriving since the restart of the season for Manchester United
- The midfielder was ready for an exit at Old Trafford after a turbulent year
- But, as Sportsmail has revealed, he is ready to open talks about a new contract
- United is in the top four and can win the Europa League and FA Cup
Paul Pogba is more focused on winning the FA Cup and the Europa League than on his Manchester United future.
The World Cup winner scored his first goal in an injury-ridden campaign on Thursday, taking a 3-0 win in the Premier League with the controversial Aston Villa.
A year later, Pogba plays with a smile on his face admitting his openness to an Old Trafford move, with the French international even willing to extend his deal – as revealed exclusively by Sportsmail.

When asked if he has changed his mind about his stay at the club, the 27-year-old said to Sky Sports: ‘I’ve been injured for a long time now.
“I focused on myself to come back and help the team as much as possible.
“This year we have two goals: going for the Europa League and the FA Cup. So we focus on that. ‘
Pogba’s desire for a successful end to the season was a common theme in his post-game interview.
“We are very happy with ourselves, but we know we have to keep going,” he said.
“We talk before the game, we talk in training that we have to go through. That’s Manchester.
“It’s a big club and we always want to keep the level up.
“The performance today and the past few weeks is very good and they are the standard of Manchester United.
“Always (we have to keep our feet on the ground). We did not win the Premier League. I mean, that’s the goal.
“We didn’t win anything this year, so of course we have to keep working. There’s a lot to do. A lot of.’
While Pogba gave shine to the final score, Bruno Fernandes’ penalty was the main topic of discussion, along with 18-year-old Mason Greenwood’s last stunning goal.
“It’s very good,” he said of the academy graduate. “I like to see them play at the front.
“I enjoy this boy in training and in the game and I will keep pushing him to be at the top.
“He has so much to do and he can do even more.
“What he’s doing now is just his talent and he’s shown that he can play on this team.”
