Ronaldo convinced Pogba not to leave Man Utd!

Paul Pogba changed his mind regarding him leaving Manchester United in the end of the season. Cristiano Ronaldo had an impact on that.

In his first match for Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brace against Newcastle and helped his team win 4:1. In the same clash, Paul Pogba made two assists and increased his indicator in this component to seven assists in four games. This was the reason for talking about the possible signing of a new contract between the French midfielder and Manchester United.

As it was known back in December last year, Pogba's agent Mino Raiola said that his ward would not stay at Old Trafford longer than the term of his contract. The current agreement of the football player with the club is calculated until June 2022, but the arrival of Ronaldo to Manchester United, apparently, changed the plans for Paul.

The Athletic reports that Cristiano's flamboyant return influenced the midfielder's plans and he changed his mind about leaving. In the summer, there were rumors of a transfer to French PSG. But a wave of indignation from the fans suspended a possible transfer and Pogba decided to wait for the end of the contract. In addition, Real Madrid became another contenders to sign the midfielder for free.

Ronaldo motivates his teammates with his presence at United. This was said even by the reserve goalkeeper of the Red Devils Lee Grant, when he described a club dinner at which all partners watched the diet of the Portuguese "newbie" and tried to follow it, excluding the consumption of junk food. We don’t even mention motivation on the pitch. Of course, Pogba, like other Manchester United players, is intoxicated by the presence of a living icon and would like to stay at Old Trafford as long as possible.

Now Pogba is finally like the best version of himself. The version that was at the 2018 World Cup, which we have not seen in three years. If the reason for such successful results of the Frenchman lies in Ronaldo, then it makes no sense for him to leave for PSG, where the atmosphere after the arrival of Messi and Ramos, as well as the constant hysterics of Neymar and Mbappe leaves much to be desired.
