Paul Pogba has been the talk of the town ever since his move to English giants Manchester United in 2016. The star midfielder from France has caught the headlines through his hairstyle, flair, match winning qualities, inconsistency and social media posts to name a few. However, it’s his agent Mino Riola who has more often than not suggested that Pogba will be looking to move an exit away from United earlier this season which has created a stir.
It still seems uncertain whether Paul Pogba will leave or remain at the club for the new season. That being said, only a few clubs will be able to afford him, with Real Madrid or Juventus being the likely destinations. Zinedine Zidane is long time admirer of Paul Pogba and his addition to the Madrid midfield will only strengthen it further. To quote Zidane, this is what he had said at the start of the season,
“He’s a great player, I like him – he’s really good.”
With the signing of Bruno Fernandes in the January transfer window being an instant success, and with reports surrounding the recruitment of Jack Grealish in the summer, it could mean that the club is settling for a life without Paul Pogba. However, as per recent repots, the Frenchman could be offered a new deal by Ed Woodward and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer which could make him the highest earner at the club.
Sources associated to Paul Pogba have come in defence of the midfielder by stating that he was let down by the club and Ed Woodward in particular by not building a team around him. But with recent signings under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer making an impact, and with Jadon Sancho being a trending topic of possibly being the next one in at Manchester United, Pogba might be inclined to stay.
Pogba’s contract at Manchester United comes to an end in 2021, and to get him away from United would cost a club close to 120 million Euros which could be an issue even if he’s affordable for the likes of some big clubs across Europe. The choice eventually lies in the hands of Paul Pogba himself. It’s either him moving to the likes of Real Madrid and Juventus and be in constant contention of winning the title, or stay at Manchester United, win back the hearts of the United faithful and build towards a future which Solskjaer has emphasized on this season. Regardless of the decision he makes, a player of his quality will make any team in the world better.
