Manchester United take on Crystal Palace on Thursday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjar’s side are currently fifth in the Premier League and, should results go their way, they could climb into the top four with a victory.

United have 59 points from 35 games, and are level on points with Leicester City with three games of the season remaining.

There is still a chance they could well finish in the top three, too, as they are four points behind Chelsea in third.

United also face West Ham United and Leicester before the end of the season, while they will also play Chelsea in the semi-finals of the FA Cup this weekend.

And, with the season reaching its conclusion, it appears that Solskjaer is set to be handed a major boost.

Indeed, The Sun reports that a major first-team star is set to sign a new five-year contract.

That man is Paul Pogba, who has previously expressed a desire to leave the club; he has, it is said, had a change of heart.

Pogba has played in the last six United games since Project Restart began, scoring once and registering two assists. 

The World Cup winner has a contract that runs until the end of next season, though United do have the option to extend that by a further year.

Now, though, he is poised to commit his future to the Old Trafford club, despite previous links with Real Madrid.

GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…

United can finally build their midfield.

Pogba is a central member of the Red Devils’ squad and should be a cornerstone of the squad that Solskjaer is attempting to build.

Having signed Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon in the January transfer window, the two have formed a genuinely exciting partnership in the centre of the pitch in Manchester.

Pogba’s future has been a constant cloud over the club but having him commit, finally, will be a major boost.

When he is fit and motivated, there really aren’t many midfielders in world football that are better than the Frenchman.

It appears, right now, that he is both.
