Interim coach of Manchester United Ralf Rangnick says he will not force French midfielder Paul Pogba to sign a contract extension.

The 2018 world cup winner has been at the centre of speculation linking him with a move out of Manchester.

But the United manager says he will leave him to decide his future.

I wouldn’t say he is not worth keeping but players need to want to stay and play for the club,” said Rangnick.

If a player doesn’t want to play for a club like Manchester United, even in the long term, I don’t think it makes sense to convince him to change his mind. This is such a massive club, with fantastic support, I don’t think anyone at the club should try to convince a player to stay.

Let’s have him come back, get fully fit and training with the team, then we will see where we stand.”

Pogba has been sidelined for United’s last seven matches after sustaining a thigh injury on international duty with France.

His contract runs out at the end of the summer.
