Ralf Rangnick believes that Paul Pogba could use his return to put himself in the shop window as his contract expires this season. He left Man Utd in 2012, joining four years later for a world-record fee while he is set to leave for free once again. The midfielder has not been offered a contract since last summer with the ball firmly in his court.
“Yes, of course. I also played Nemanja Matic now in the last games and his contract is also expiring. By the way, my contract as a manager is also expiring in the summer,” Ralf Rangnick said about Paul Pogba. “So, for us, we have the same goal, we have the same ambition to be as successful as we can possibly be in the next three or four months. For me, it’s not a question if a player has an expiring contract. The question is how much does he still want to be a part of this group? How much does he still feel emotionally and physically on board?”
“And as long as this is the case, why shouldn’t Paul Pogba now after two and half months of injury, be fully fit again now and he also wants to show up?” he added. “He wants to show the fans of Manchester United, the board, the whole world what kind of player he can be, and even if it’s for only showing up for a new contract elsewhere, I mean, he will be highly motivated to do that. Why should I then not play him?”
