Paul Pogba has NOT decided whether he will stay at Man United but will do so ‘when the time is right’, his brother Mathias claims… just months after urging him to sign for Barcelona
- Paul Pogba’s brother says he hasn’t decided yet whether he will stay at Man United
- The Frenchman’s contract with the Red Devils expires at the end of the season
- The midfielder has sparked interest from PSG, Real Madrid and Barcelona
- His brother has previously urged him to leave United to join the Catalans
Paul Pogba’s brother, Mathias, says the midfielder has not yet decided whether he will stay with Manchester United after this season, but will do so when it is ‘the right time’.
The Frenchman is out of contract at Old Trafford at the end of the season and Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Barcelona are all said to be interested in signing him.
Pogba is free to sign a pre-contract with a foreign club from January 1, but United are hoping to tie him to a new long-term deal. However, the 28-year-old’s brother insisted that he not make a hasty decision about his future.

“Paul has yet to decide whether he plans to stay at Manchester United or leave next summer,” said Mathias Spanish TV show El Chiringuito.
“The decision is his. At the moment he feels very good at Manchester United, especially this season.
‘We will see. We’ll see when it’s time to make a decision.”
But in May Mathias urged his brother to move to Barca rather than sign a new contract with United.

When asked to comment on a possible move to Camp Nou, he told the same TV show: ‘I don’t know about anything, but I’m with you, I’d sign tomorrow if that was the question.
“Hopefully he signs for Barca.”
The midfielder has started the season strong with seven assists in four games, with United leading the league together on 10 points.
According to reports this week, Pogba is leaning towards a stay at United and is ready to talk about a contract extension.
the athletic reported that United’s 4-1 win against Newcastle on Saturday has had a significant impact on the World Cup winner’s thinking about his future and that he has serious doubts about leaving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

The report claims Cristiano Ronaldo’s return and Saturday’s events have had a significant positive impact on Pogba, with a feeling that a midfielder’s stay at the club is becoming a realistic possibility.
After Newcastle’s win, Solskjaer said: “Cristiano lifts everyone up, he makes sure everyone is so focused when he is in and around the place, he makes demands on himself, they then make demands on his teammates and it makes demands on us .
That’s why he’s done so much in his career. He’s been so disciplined.
“We knew he’s evolved, he’s evolved as a player, he’s a different type of player now compared to what he was when he left, but he’s still a ruthless and clinical goalscorer.
“He smells the big moments, he feels when there is a goal in it.”
Pogba’s decision whether or not to stay at United will likely depend on the club’s success this season and any offers that come in for him.
