Manchester United are confident that Arsenal target Paul Pogba will pen a new deal at Old Trafford.


The 18-year-old has been stalling on a new deal and is refusing to sign unless he receives assurances from Sir Alex Ferguson regarding his future role at the club, reports Talksport.


The versatile midfielder’s reluctance to put pen to paper has stoked Arsenal’s interest, as they feel they can lure him with greater first team opportunities at the Emirates Stadium.


Arsene Wenger has previously shown interest in the midfielder, and attempted to sign him for the Gunners from Le Havre before the Red Devils switch took place.


United’s rivals in the capital are not the only club to have taken note of the situation – both AC Milan and Inter are thought to be interested in convincing the young Frenchman to switch to Serie A.


Pogba signed for Manchester Untied in 2009 after an acrimonious dispute with Le Havre, which was resolved last year when the two sides came to a financial agreement.


After going through so much trouble to secure his signature initially, Ferguson is reportedly desperate to keep a hold of him and rates the French Under-19 international very highly.
