Pogba’s Man United exit imminent. This could be a blessing or a curse to Man United.
According to reports, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba wants to join Real Madrid when his contract expires in the summer.
The 28-year-old is coming to the conclusion of a tumultuous time at Old Trafford. While he has shown flashes of his finest form during his six years in Manchester, he has battled to maintain consistency.
In the meanwhile, he has been limited in his position in the team due to a series of ailments. After a long layoff, he has regained fitness, but his return comes as he enters the final six months of his contract.
According to the Daily Mirror, Pogba is interested in a summer move to Madrid, where he has long been a fan. He would so thwart Paris Saint-plans Germain’s to sign him.
According to ESPN, PSG is attempting to extend Kylian Mbappe’s contract and recruit AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie in the hopes of attracting Pogba to the club.
“For me, it’s not a question of whether a player’s contract is expiring; the question is how much does he still want to be a part,” Man Utd manager Ralf Rangnick said on Tuesday. How much emotional and physical energy does he have left on board?
“As long as that’s the case, why shouldn’t Paul Pogba play now that he’s fully fit again after months of injury?” He also wishes to appear.
“He wants to demonstrate the Manchester United fans, the board, and the rest of the world what type of player he can be, even if it’s just to get a new contract somewhere else.”
Pogba has appeared in 219 games for United, scoring 38 goals and assisting 49 times across all competitions.
