How CR7's arrival could affect Pogba

Transfer: How Cristiano's arrival could change one Man Utd star's Old Trafford future

September 13, 2021 By Ali M.
The Portuguese ace looks to have brought positive ramifications both on and off the pitch.

The arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo looks to have brought several positives to Man United, from both a tactical point – the Portuguese icon is a goalscoring machine – to a commercial perspective as well, having sold record-breaking number of replica jerseys.

However, it doesn't stop there. As the saying goes, every ambitious footballer would love to play with the best in the world, and given that Ronaldo is one of only a few names in that category, his arrival looks to have sparked a change in heart from one wantaway superstar.

That man is none other than Paul Pogba, the France international who has less than 12 months left on his current Old Trafford deal. The talented midfielder had been linked with a move away from the Theatre of Dreams, with the 2018 World Cup winner reportedly being keen on a new challenge elsewhere after enduring a mixed second spell at the club.

PSG, Juventus, and Real Madrid have been tipped as the favorites to land the midfielder but after witnessing Man United's comprehensive 4-1 victory over Newcastle in Cristiano's debut game, the Athletic claim the 28-year-old's future has taken a turn for the positive.

The Red Devils are set to begin contract talks with the Frenchman amid growing optimism. However, given that Pogba can agree a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club this January ahead of a free summer exit, Solskjaer's side have replacements lined up for the possibility of his departure.

One key factor that will go into Pogba's decision is Man United's ability to challenge for silverware. The Premier League giants are yet to win silverware under Solskjaer but will look to end this barren run thanks to the addition of Sancho, Varane, and Ronaldo.
