Paul Pogba had revealed his intention to leave United, Adidas reportedly acted as 'peacemakers' in Paul Pogba's transfer talks with Manchester United .
Speaking at the start of the summer, Pogba admitted he would look to seek a fresh challenge away from Old Trafford.
Real Madrid were linked with Pogba throughout the summer but a bid failed to materialise, despite Zinedine Zidane's intentions to take him to the Bernabeu.
But it has now emerged that Adidas actively encouraged Pogba to remain at Old Trafford for another year at least.
Pogba is three years into a whopping 10-year deal with the sportswear giants, who are also United's kit sponsors.
