PAUL POGBA remained a Manchester United player for another year thanks to sportswear giants Adidas, it has been claimed.

Pogba was the centre of a summer of speculation that he would be quitting Old Trafford to join Real Madrid.

The Spanish giants were desperate to land the 26-year-old in a deal worth as much as £150million.

But he ultimately stayed a United player, and the Star on Sunday claim Adidas had a major role in deciding that outcome.
