Manchester: Interim manager Ralf Rangnick has indicated that Paul Pogba might have played his last game for Manchester United after the Frenchman suffered an injury in their 4-0 loss against Liverpool in the English Premier League earlier in the week.
Pogba, whose contract is going to end at the end of the season, suffered a calf injury and has been ruled out for four weeks according to doctors. The French international is not likely to renew his contract with Manchester United and is been heavily linked to Paris Saint-Germain.
Rangnick said, “As it seems right now he will not renew his contract and I don’t know, maybe the club or Erik (ten Hag) will not want to renew his contract, I don’t know. It’s most likely he won’t be here anymore next season.”
Pogba graduated from Manchester United academy and joined Juventus in 2012 before returning back at Old Trafford in 2016. He wished to leave Manchester in 2019 but injuries and COVID-19 pandemic made his stay at the club for three more years.
Pogba had been mercurial in the Manchester United shirt. Rangnick added, “He was quite like a few other players struggling to get his best performance sustainably on the pitch for a team like Man United. This has not only been the case this season or in the last couple of weeks. As far as I remember it was also the case in earlier years.”
The race to sign Pogba will be open once the summer transfer window kick starts.
