Manchester United face a battle to keep hold of Paul Pogba.

The Mirror says Pogba, just 18, was a controversial capture from Le Havre two seasons ago. But his contract is running out and he could be free for talks early next year.

Sir Alex Ferguson used him as a sub in the Carling Cup win at Leeds, but Pogba - dubbed a new Patrick Vieira - is ambitious and his new handlers also want better terms.
