Paul Pogba is awaiting a recall from Manchester United against Liverpool as he tries to convince the club that he is worth a new contract of £ 350,000 a week.

With Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Fred facing late fitness tests, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to call Pogba out as he knocked him out of the starting lineup against Atalanta following the 4-2 loss of the last weekend in Leicester.

It represents a great opportunity for the World Cup-winning French midfielder, who was the most expensive player in the Premier League when he joined United for £ 89 million in 2016.

He has rarely lived up to that superstar billing on the field and, having tried to go to Real Madrid or Juventus, he is now in a position to persuade United that it is worth keeping a higher salary beyond this last year of his contract.

“I can’t comment on the conversations between Paul and the club, but of course if Paul is happy here then it’s great because we get the best football from him, as do all the players here,” Solskjaer said.

‘We need everyone to give everything they have and when you see the reaction of Atalanta’s game, Paul’s fist when we blocked (Pogba came in as a substitute), everyone is giving what they can for the team.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised Pogba's recent performances and his commitment to the team.

‘Paul is doing that too and I have to praise him for that.’

United could close the gap with Liverpool at one point if they beat their rivals today, but will fall seven points behind if they lose. “We have recently lost points that we are not happy with. We have to start from here and really get going, ” Solskjaer added.

“There is no time to lose because even though it is a long season, the teams we compete against are not going to give you too many options to catch them.”
