Manchester United and Paul Pogba have paused discussions on a long-term contract extension.

Pogba is two years into the five-year deal he signed when he returned from Juventus in 2016.

United had hoped to hold preliminary negotiations with Pogba and agent Mino Raiola in September.

While Pogba won't push for a move in January, he could be tempted by Barcelona next summer. United remains confident of their odds of signing Pogba to an extension.
