Ragnick will not try to convince Pogba to stay at Manchester United

For much of his time at Old Trafford, Paul Pogba's future as a Manchester United has looked uncertain. However, it looks increasingly likely the Frenchman's time at the club will come to an end in the summer.

His contract expires in June 2022 and there has been little talk over him signing a new contract, whilst Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain wait in the wings.

Interim coach Ralph Ragnick has done little to quieten the rumours over his future by stating that he will not stand in the Frenchman's way if he wants to leave in the summer.

"I wouldn't say [Paul Pogba} is not worth keeping but players need to want to stay and play for the club," said Rangnick in his press conference on Friday.

"If a player doesn't want to play for a club like Manchester United, even in the long term, I don't think it makes sense to convince him to change his mind.

"This is such a massive club, with fantastic support, I don't think anyone at the club should try to convince a player to stay.

The 28-year-old has not featured in Manchester United's last seven matches after sustaining a thigh injury on international duty at the start of November.

The club sent the midfielder to a warm-weather training camp in Dubai to help his recovery, and Ragnick went on to criticise this decision.

"I would not want players to do their rehab abroad or anywhere else but the decision on Paul was taken before I came," he said.

"In the future, I have already spoken to the medical department - to Steve [McNally] our doctor, to [head of physiotherapy] Robin Sadler - that in the future I want players with injuries - and hopefully we don't get long-term injuries - but if we have them in the future I want them to stay here."
