Solskjaer confirms that Pogba has renewed until 2022

Paul Pogba had less than a year left on his contract with Manchester United. The French midfielder, who he has always publicly expressed his dream of wearing the Real Madrid jersey, is in his sixth season at Old Trafford since his arrival from Juventus, where he spent four years. Pogba has been indisputable in the center of the field of the red devils until last year, when he fell from Solskjaer's plans due to an injury and only returned in the final stretch, after the stoppage due to the coronavirus.

However, the current situation is very different. At the press conference prior to the Premier League game against Newcastle, and to everyone's surprise, Solskjaer has confirmed that Pogba has two years left at the club, until 2022. In other words, Manchester United has activated the unilateral clause to renew your contract until 2022, one more year than he had signed: “Paul is our player and he will be here for another two years. He is focused on the best for us and I am sure that in these two years we will get the best of him“.

This unilateral clause in Pogba's contract is very common in English football, which allows the club to renew its player under previously agreed amounts and that is used in case there is a chance of losing the player for free.
