According to The Sun, the 26-year-old’s hesitancy revolves around the uncertain future of Pogba, whose current contract expire in June next year when he will be able to leave Old Trafford on a free transfer.

United triggered a one-year extension clause back in October of last year but have made no progress over a long-term extension, with the player’s agent, Mino Raiola, having claimed on several occasions that Pogba is keen for a new challenge.

But Fernandes sees Pogba – who has enjoyed an excellent campaign this season – as absolutely crucial to the club’s future and particularly their chances of closing the gap to Manchester City.

The Portugal international is said to be watching Pogba’s situation very carefully and does not want to enter into talks until he has been given assurances over his teammate’s future.

Fernandes also wants to see signs of the club’s ambition and is taking an especially keen interest in their summer transfer plans, with a move for the likes of Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho potentially providing the statement of intent he is seeking.

While a marquee summer signing is not too much to ask for, Pogba’s future has been up in the air for some time and there are suggestions United could even be forced to sell him if he intimates he will not sign a new contract.

There is hope for United, though, with Pogba enjoying one of his best spells at the club on and off the pitch and confirming his contentedness to Sky Sports recently, saying: ‘I’m happy! Of course I’m happy. I’m happy.

‘We’re there, we’re close [to winning trophies]. We’re still in competition for the Europa League, we still have something to play for in the Premier League until City have the trophy in their hands.

‘We have to keep working. We have to keep on playing, that’s the way it is. We still have a chance to win something this year, so why not?’
