Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is convinced Paul Pogba will sign a new contract. Ferguson has previously advised not to follow the money trail because if he makes it at Old Trafford, Pogba will be a very wealthy young man.

And 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."
