At one time it appeared near impossible that Paul Pogba would remain a Manchester United player for the 2020/21 season, but time moves quickly in the world of football and Pogba now looks likely to stay. The 27-year-old has spent the last four seasons at Old Trafford but has played just eight times in all competitions this season due to ankle problems, that coming after what was arguably his best individual campaign that saw him score 16 goals in 47 appearances in all competitions. Pogba was not granted the same wish as Romelu Lukaku in being given the green light to move on from Old Trafford last summer and, if the odds are anything to go by, that looks set to continue once more.
We will be analyzing the contenders for Pogba’s signature below and assessing their chances of taking the World Cup winner out of Manchester. We would also like to point you in the direction of https://silentbet.com/ once you have checked out Pogba’s list of suitors. Their comprehensive list of bookmaker reviews will ensure you are betting with the very best bookmakers in the industry.
Manchester United – 3/10
As previously mentioned, Manchester United are now the heavy favourites to have Paul Pogba playing for them at the start of next season. His time at Old Trafford has thus far come with a mixed bag of highs and lows, with there at times being an unfair level of scrutiny following his every move, both on and off the field.
Already such an outstanding talent, Pogba should now be coming into his best years at the age of 27 and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will know that his team is a better one for having the Frenchman in it than without him. The addition of Bruno Fernandes should only help Pogba too, taking a load off of his shoulders when it comes to creativity from midfield.
Real Madrid – 3/1
Should United decide to let Pogba leave, the bookies feel that Real Madrid are in pole position to sign him. Looking at the current squad available to Zinedine Zidane, it comes with a midfield that features two players now into their 30s in Luka Modric, who turns 35 this year, and Toni Kroos, who abandoned his 20s in January.
Madrid fans have always appreciated their Galactico signings and Pogba certainly fits the profile of a player that they like to go after and they haven’t been shy in taking some of the Premier League’s top talents in the past.
Juventus – 4/1
A return to Juventus has had plenty of conversation over the years and they, like Madrid, could do with freshening up their midfield options. Miralem Pjanic, Blaise Matuidi and Sami Khedira are all north of 30 and Juve fans would almost certainly welcome Pogba back to Turin if they made their move.
PSG – 5/1
If there’s one team that won’t be impacted financially by recent events it’s Paris Saint-Germain, who would be the prime contender if Pogba decided to return back to his home country. With it already confirmed that both Thiago Silva and Edinson Cavani will be leaving the club at the end of their current contracts, Pogba could be the signing that kick starts a new era at the Parc des Princes.
