The New interim manager of Manchester United, Ralf Rangnick has made it clear that he won’t try to change Paul Pogba’s mind if Manchester United’s record signing wants to quit Old Trafford in the summer.

The French man,Pogba flew back from Dubai on Friday following three weeks of rehab, with Rangnick warning that United’s injured players must have treatment at the club’s Carrington headquarters in future.

The Frenchman who’ll be out of contract during the summer of 2022, will be free to leave the club for the second time for nothing, having rejoined for £89million in 2016.

Ralf Rangnick has stated that a club like United’s reputation ain’t allowed to force players to sign new contracts.

Rangnick said: “Players have to want to play and stay at a big club like Manchester United.”

He said without any atom of bias that “If a player does not want to play for a club like Manchester United medium or long-term, I don’t think it makes sense to convince him to change his mind.

“I wouldn’t advice or think anyone in the club should try to convince a player to stay.”

The interim coach and Pogba have spoken on the phone on Tuesday and the two are expected to meet on Sunday after his return.

Pogba went for treatment in Dubai, and has been recovering from a thigh injury, but Rangnick will insist on players using the club’s medical facilities in future.

He added that “I would not want players to do their rehab abroad or anywhere else, but the decision on Paul was taken before I came.

“It’s quite unfortunate that players do take treatment outside the club which I don’t see to be the best solution I have already spoken to the medical department, and in the future I want players with injuries to stay here,” Ralf add.
