Manchester United have reportedly asked a number of the club’s players to refrain from making any decisions over their futures until after the club has appointed a new permanent manager. 

As per ESPN, the likes of Paul Pogba have been asked to wait until interim boss Ralf Rangnick’s successor has been confirmed before deciding upon their own futures.

The Red Devils are set to appoint a new full-time manager in the coming months, with Rangnick’s appointment as successor to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer only ever on an interim basis.

Several names have been touted as possible candidates, including Erik Ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino, and those in charge of the Premier League side are hopeful that the correct appointment will persuade Pogba to stay put.

Pogba has been linked with a move away from Manchester for several years now

The Frenchman has been heavily linked with a move away from Manchester for a long time now, with the midfielder reportedly unsettled in England and keen on a return to Italy.

Loanee duo Anthony Martial and Donny van de Beek, both of whom departed the club until the end of the season last month, have also been asked by football director John Murtough to wait until a new manager is appointed before making a decision on where they want to play next term.

United have reportedly drawn up a five-man shortlist, which is thought to include Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers, alongside Ten Hag and Pochettino.

The possibility of Rangnick, who is set to step back into an upstairs role next term, taking charge for a further season is also believed to be another possibility.
