Paul Pogba’s future is once again uncertain and Manchester United is worried.
The former Juventus midfielder’s future is once again up in the air as the midfielder is open for a new challenge outside the Premier League after spending four seasons at the Old Trafford. Pogba still remains the most expensive player in the history of Manchester United and is on the course of entering his name as the most expensive departure of the club after being heavily linked with Real Madrid this season.
The Los Blancos’s manager, Zinedine Zidane, has often praised his fellow countryman in public and has spoken highly of the midfielder. Zizou believes that Pogba has the qualities to replace Luka Modric who is set to turn 35 and is still performing at an unimaginable rate given his age.
When Zidane took over Real Madrid midseason after the sacking of interim manager, Santiago Solari, the French coach had made it clear to Florentino Perez that Pogba and Eden Hazard must be signed at all costs in the summer of 2019.
However, Perez has failed to do so as the board signed Jovic and Hazard this summer which ruled out the possibility of landing Pogba. Fede Valverde has also been phenomenal this season and his performances speak volumes as to why Real does not require Pogba to fill in Modric’s boots.
Despite all the rumours linking Pogba to Real Madrid, Fabrizio Romano has stated on twitter
Solskjaer on Paul Pogba new deal: “I can’t comment on discussions with players, but of course we want to keep the best players around the club”. Man United have opened talks with Raiola to extend Pogba’s contract. He’s waiting for the first bid – not agreed yet
