Paul 波格巴 scored his first goal in over a year for 曼联 against Aston Villa. In the post-match interview, he was asked about his future at the club but managed to evade the question. However, anyone following transfer rumours would know that sources say he could be signing a new contract.
新闻 broke on the 9th July claiming that 曼联 have opened talks with 波格巴’的经纪人Mino Raiola。虽然没有具体的报道’据传开盘价尚未到来。这名法国国脚的合同只剩下一年了。曼联’不想冒险，应该通过扩展来结束这个传奇。如果他们’re serious about challenging for titles in the coming years then keeping a player of 波格巴’能力至关重要。
波格巴’到目前为止，在曼联的职业生涯受到了一些打击。虽然他没有’就像媒体有时对他的描述那样糟糕，’有时会质疑他的愿望和一贯性。他到达了穆里尼奥（Jose Mourinho）的统治之下，注定是关键人物。在头两个赛季中，他总共只完成了11个英超联赛进球。穆里尼奥向他要求更多，但他们的关系最终发生了灾难性的转变。他被公开标记为‘virus’ and all the negative media attention around 曼联 turned towards 波格巴. Then in came Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, in the 2018/19 season Paul 波格巴 produced a career-best. He managed to eclipse the 10 goal mark for the first time in his career. During Solskjaers interim manager stay he was flourishing.
那’s been maintained this season, although it was unfortunate for both Solskjaer and 波格巴 that he was injured for most of the campaign. But it’很明显，自他返回以来，我们’ve seen 波格巴 at his very best. The introduction of 布鲁诺·费尔南德斯 has revitalised 曼联 but also 波格巴’希望留在俱乐部。也许引进了另一位高素质的创造者已经给了法国人很大的希望，希望俱乐部最终朝他想要的方向前进。
With players like Sancho also being heavily linked with 曼联, they could be the main reason 波格巴 decides to extend his contract and commit to Solskjaer’的愿景。当然有’尚无定论，我们只能从谣言中推测，但是’s looking more likely than ever. Not too long ago it seemed as if 波格巴 staying was out of the question. The reported change in stance shows how far United have come under Solskjaer and with Fernandes. Of course, for this mood around the club to continue Solsjkaer needs to be backed in the summer. Not bringing in players wouldn’t only be a disservice to the manager but also to 波格巴’s commitment.
