Man Utd legend Schmeichel convinced Pogba will stay put

Pogba: ready to stay at United, according to ex-player

With both Real Madrid and Barcelona both ready to table an enormous 150 million euro transfer bid for Paul Pogba this summer, Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel is convinced the French World Cup winner will stay at Old Trafford. Pogba is reportedly ready to quit United for pastures new.

The 27-year-old has struggled for regular first-team action so far this season, and that hasn't stopped the media from linking Pogba with a transfer away.

Former club Juventus remain interested in Pogba, but have yet to make an official bid.

Peter Schmeichel told reporters today: "I'm absolutely convinced he wants to stay. I think we'll somebody, more of a player we saw a year ago.

"One thing is how he's portrayed in the media for what he does and what he says himself, and another thing is what his agent is doing. And a completely different thing is what it's really like.

"He wanted to come back to Manchester United, he wanted to come back. And he has got, like any other player at that level in the world, he's got his pride. And I don't think he wants to leave. I don't think so.

"Unfortunately I don't think he's gotten great representation. He's such a valuable asset so it's great to shift him to another club, because that's a lot of money to make."
