According to the Italian press, even when Man Utd expressed his intention to retain Paul Pogba, the midfielder still wants to leave Old Trafford in the summer transfer window.
Not long ago, coach Ole Solskjaer confirmed that Paul Pogba will soon renew his contract and stay at Old Trafford. However, according to Calciomercato, the French midfielder is still looking to leave Man Utd in the interest of big clubs like Juventus or Real Madrid.
The number one priority for Juventus in the summer transfer window is to bring Pogba back to the Allianz Arena. The “old lady” of Turin is willing to spend 100 million euros to get this player’s signature. If the deal goes as planned, Man Utd could be considered a break-even after 4 years with Pogba. In the summer of 2016, the Old Trafford team recruited the French midfielder for the same fee.
The source also said that if Man Utd extended the contract with Pogba, it only gives them an advantage at the negotiating table, but cannot change the decision of the player born in 1993. In addition to Juventus, Real Madrid, Barca and PSG is also said to be keeping an eye on Pogba after the scourge in England.
However, Solskjaer still wants to keep the midfielder, especially when Man Utd has just added Bruno Fernandes. After 5 matches in the Premier League, Bruno made a mark with 2 goals and 3 assists. The Norwegian strategist is eager to combine the duo Bruno and Pogba in midfield “Red Devils”.
The French midfielder has recently shown positive signs in recovering from injury. Pogba is expected to return to the Man Utd squad soon in March. However, due to the complicated developments of the Covid-19 epidemic, the European leagues have been declared adjourned. Therefore, fans will have to wait a little longer to see this player appear on the field.
