• Fergie unsure over Pogba

Pogba, 18, has been offered a new long-term contract at Old Trafford as his current deal ends in the summer. Reports suggested that he had already agreed a move to Juventus after growing tired of life in the reserves, but after making an appearance against West Brom at the weekend, Ferguson revealed he is still mulling his future over.

"The boy is still trying to make his mind up but he knows where he should be," Ferguson told MUTV. "He has shown again the potential he has got and he is a first-team player, there is no question about that."

Pogba was omitted from Ferguson's first-team plans in the recent Europa League home defeats by Ajax and Athletic Bilbao, but the France Under-19 international could be set for an extended run in the side as United look to maintain their one-point lead over rivals Man City at the top of the Premier League.
