Pogba could force Real move

Paul Pogba is ready to force through a move to Real Madrid this summer.

Manchester United have reacted angrily to comments made by the French midfield star, who admitted in his homeland that he could be ready for a new challenge.

“There is a lot of thinking [going on],” Pogba said. “I have been three years in Manchester and have been doing great – some good moments and some bad moments, like everybody, like everywhere else.

“After this season and everything that happened, with my season being my best season … it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else.”

United sources revealed that the club were far from impressed, but they realise that Pogba could make life very difficult for them and that is an option he would consider.

His agent Mino Raiola is already somewhat of an unpopular figure in British football, but if a deal is possible – there are few in world football equipped to get a deal done like him.

Pogba had been open to the idea of a new contract next season, although that option now appears to have disappeared with Real pushing for the 26-year-old – with Zinedine Zidane pushing Florentino Perez hard to get a deal done.

Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen had also been an option, but Zidane has long prioritised Pogba and Real’s commercial team have also been pushing for the Frenchman – who is one of the most recognisable footballers on the planet.

Bookmakers firmly believe that Real Madrid are the next landing spot for Pogba.

Betway’s Alan Alger said: “Real Madrid are still favourites at 8/11 to bag unsettled Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, but they’re not without competition. It now appears to be a two-horse race for his signature with Juventus just 5/4, having been as big as 11/4 last week.

“Either way, there’s a lot of interest in the Frenchman moving away from Old Trafford and, with Pogba himself having been outspoken about his desire to leave, the betting on his next club is warming up nicely.”
