Manchester United have triggered one-year option on Paul Pogba’s contract, extending the midfielder’s deal until year 2022.
Pogba, 27, France world cup winner would have been out of contract at the end of this season.
Pogba has started all three of United’s Premier League this term, including the 6-1 home thrashing by Tottenham.
During the international break, Pogba’s dream was to move to La Liga giants Real Madrid.
It is understood the decision to extend his contract was taken a few weeks ago, before Pogba’s comments.
In 2016 Pogba rejoined ManU from Juventus for a club record £89m.
Last season an ankle injury restricted him to 22 games.
