Man United: Paul Pogba’s flirting with other clubs begins

Manchester United’s Paul Pogba once again states it would be a “dream” to play for Real Madrid.

In his exact words… “All football players would love to play for Real Madrid. It is a dream for me, why not one day?”.  The transfer window has barely closed and already Paul Pogba switches back to his old antics.

During the January transfer window and Pogba’s long injury layoff, Real Madrid made their interest in the midfielder known. In return, the Frenchman didn’t hold back and showed the same love to the Spanish champs, talking about them more often than not.

A move did not materialize during the winter as well as the summer transfer window that followed. He appeared to be considerably happy with his Old Trafford camp, so much so that talks of a new long-term deal was being discussed between him and the club. Or so we thought.

But now Pogba has come out saying a new deal with United is far from the truth and they are yet to meet, interpreting he is miles away from him committing his future to the club. This comes during a time where the Manchester club does not need additional problems to that of what has occurred on the pitch.

The risk of losing the Frenchman on a free becomes even more threatening now that his contract ends next year June, leaving him with 12 months at Old Trafford. This is a major concern for Ole and the board considering he is the club’s record signing.

Paul Pogba says there has been no contact from Manchester United over a contract extension and that “all football players would love to play for Real Madrid”.

With a 6-1 loss to Spurs at Old Trafford during the last Premier League matchday before the international break, trying to convince him to stay could be a difficult trick. Ole’s sweating in the hot seat and one of the EPL managers who could be the first to lose their job this season.

The question for Man United now is… Do they hang on to Paul Pogba and try to get him to stay on longer? Or do they sell him when it comes to the January transfer window and save them all the trouble of trying to keep an unhappy player happy.

Do you see Paul Pogba at the club next beyond January?
