Paul Scholes wondered why Paul Pogba would want to leave Manchester United as the midfielder continues to slow down the signing of a new deal at Old Trafford.
The 28-year-old has been in superb form this season with seven assists in as many Premier League games, but he has yet to make a deal to extend his contract and is therefore in a position to sign a pre-deal deal. -contract with a foreign club in January,
Pogba has expressed his desire for a “new challenge” in 2019, but has enjoyed his football under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer more over the past two seasons.

“Why would you want to try to leave England? We talked about Real Madrid, but the Spanish league is gone. Real Madrid and Barcelona are a complete mess.
“PSG may be the best option, but England are the best now. If you look at the top four teams, they all have the best players, the best managers are here, so why would he want to leave? I do not understand.
“But again, it depends on the club. If they want to keep it, good, if they don’t, we’ll say goodbye to them.
