A deal still likely for Pogba to stay with Man Utd

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has not given up on retaining young midfielder Paul Pogba. The 18-year-old was introduced for his Barclays Premier League debut in United's win over Stoke on Tuesday night as Ferguson opted to give Pogba some valuable experience.

Italian giants Juventus are amongst the clubs who have expressed an interest in the French teenager, but the United boss confirmed talks were continuing and he was hopeful of a positive resolution.

"Pogba did very well," Ferguson told the BBC.

"The boy has great talent and tremendous physique for an 18-year-old. You can't believe it.

"We are negotiating his contract at the moment. It is a bit complicated at the moment because he has changed his agent a couple of times.

"But the boy wants to stay, that is obvious. Hopefully we can get it done soon."
