Transfer News: Paul Pogba remains keen on Manchester United exit next summer
According to an interview done by Ian McGarry on the Transfer Window Podcast (h/t Sport Review), Paul Pogba may leave Manchester United on a free transfer next summer.
The Frenchman has had an uncertain future at the club all summer, especially after he refused a contract extension. The 28-year-old only has a year left on his contract and should he not sign a new one, the Red Devils could lose the player on a free transfer next summer.
Journalist Ian McGarry explained Pogba’s contract situation and his ambitions of signing a new deal with the Old Trafford outfit. He said on the Transfer Window Podcast (h/t Sport Review):
“It does remain our information here that Pogba and his agent Mino Raiola have continued to refuse the invitation of Manchester United to discuss a new contract for the player”.
McGarry also talked about Pogba’s ambitions of joining Spanish giants Real Madrid and the La Liga outfit’s readiness to welcome him.
“Pogba remains unconvinced by the Man United project in terms of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s management and we know that he has ambitions to play in La Liga and specifically for Real Madrid, who would be very happy to see him walk through the door for free next summer”
The Frenchman, who was touted for a move to PSG this summer, failed to move back to his home country after the Parisians prioritized the signing of Barcelona legend Lionel Messi. However, they remain interested in Pogba, should he be available on a free transfer next year.
United, on the other hand, will be trying their best to keep the midfielder at the club, especially after his sensational performance in the club’s season opener against Leeds United, where Pogba set up four of the five goals the team scored.
