Paul Scholes believes Paul Pogba will sign a new contract and stay at Manchester United now that the Red Devils have a squad that 'can go on and win trophies'.

Pogba has already entered the final 12 months of his current contract with Man Utd, and the French international has been linked with a move away from the Premier League side.

Scholes, though, believes Pogba, who registered four assists in Man Utd's Premier League 2021/22 season opener against Leeds United, will stay at the Old Trafford-outfit, who he says is 'a team that can go on and win trophies'.

"I think he'll stay," Scholes told Premier League Productions [via Metro] after Man Utd's 5-1 win over Leeds. "I think he will.

"When he was playing a couple of years ago in a team that wasn't quite functioning as well as this one looks like it might do, and with the amount of attacking players he's got, the ability he's got, I think he'll add a lot to this team.

"I think he'll end up signing a new contract. If this team carries on in this manner, progressing like it is – I don't want to get too excited – but it's a team that can go on and win trophies and that’s what he wants to do."

Meanwhile, Man Utd have made two mega moves in the summer - landing long-term target Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund and Raphael Varane from Real Madrid - and will be aiming for some silverware this season.
