Man UtD manager Louis van Gaal says he has no problem with Paul Pogba signing a contract extension and will not hesitate to use the squad to help him fulfil his goals for the team.
The Belgium international has become a vital part of Louis van Persie’s team, with his form on the pitch prompting him to earn the manager’s trust this season.
But Van Gaal said: “I can guarantee that Pogba is a very important player for the squad, and he is a player that we will always look to support.”
It will always be Paul’s decision to sign a contract.
That will be Paul, but I think there is a lot of pressure for the players.
We will support him.
We have to be a team that is focused on the objectives.
“While the 28-year-old is not the only one benefiting from Van Gaal’s new-found support, Van Persie is among the best players in the squad.
In fact, the player has been named the player of the month in January for helping Manchester United to a second consecutive title.
He also helped the United squad secure the title last season, winning the Europa League and the Champions League.
The Red Devils won the Premier League and FA Cup last season with Pogba, while the France international also scored a brace against his former club.
He has scored 15 goals in 30 appearances for Manchester United this season, with seven goals from open play.
The Manchester United manager will hope Pogba will stay with the club for the rest of his career.
