Manchester United star Paul Pogba is believed to be 'happy' at Old Trafford, and he is hoping for talks over a new contract to commence at the end of the Red Devils' current Europa League campaign.

Supporters may have been left disappointed by Pogba's big Twitter reveal on Wednesday - announcing that he is now part of Call of Duty team 'VerdanskFC' - but green shoots did surface regarding his future in Manchester.

A source close to the Frenchman has told Sky Sports' Dharmesh Sheth that he is 'happy at Man Utd and he is expecting them to open contract talks once their Europa League campaign is over'.

The reporting will come as great comfort to the Red Devils, with Pogba's current deal set to expire at the end of next season - although there is the option to trigger an additional one-year extension.

The 27-year-old's future has long been a hot topic of discussion within the football world, with many predicting an Old Trafford exit and spouting rumours of discontent on the France international's part. Those fears have disappeared of late however, and it has been reported for almost a month that Pogba is set to sign a new, long-term deal with the club.

Man Utd supporters will be delighted by this latest revelation, having seen huge improvements in their side's play since Pogba linked up with January arrival Bruno Fernandes. The duo have gelled excellently in the midfield, and the Red Devils have strung together some great form, which has seen them land third place in the Premier League, and a spot in the Europa League semi-finals.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men will take on Sevilla in the last four, and could face the prospect of meeting ex-teammates Romelu Lukaku, Ashley Young and Alexis Sanchez in the final, who now all turn out for Italian giants Inter.

So, Man Utd can relax and enjoy their Europa League run for now, before contemplating the future of their midfield talisman.
