Manchester United star Paul Pogba wants to stay at Old Trafford, Peter Schmeichel has told Express Sport. The France international has been repeatedly linked with a move away from the club amid transfer interest from Real Madrid and Juventus. But Schmeichel, after talking to ‘the right people’, has tipped the 27-year-old to stay put.

Pogba publicly expressed a desire to leave United a year ago, admitting that he felt the time was right to pursue a new challenge elsewhere.

Yet, 12 months on, uncertainty surrounding his future is continuing to rumble on.

United themselves haven’t entered contract talks with Pogba, in a clear sign that he could be destined to leave the Theatre of Dreams.

But Schmeichel believes that, after holding discussions with people, the 27-year-old wants to stay and prove a point.

“I’m absolutely convinced he wants to stay,” he said.

“I think we’ll see somebody, more of the player we saw a year ago.”

When quizzed on why he thought Pogba was destined to stay, Schmeichel added: “I just know, you speak to the right people.

“One thing is how he’s portrayed in the media for how what he does and what he says himself, and another thing is what his agent is doing.
