Pogba and his future destination: As Paul Pogba’s contract with Manchester United is about to run out in the summer of 2022, Real Madrid, Juventus and PSG will be hot on the heels of the French midfielder.
The French sensation has been absolutely electrifying in the ongoing edition of the Premier League, and this has reinvigorated interests from the big clubs that once left the pursuit of the wily midfielder after a couple of lacklustre displays.
Pogba at Manchester United
Pogba has so far been the best midfielder of Manchester United in the ongoing season and is the leader of the French midfield that has seen the team reap handsome dividends from the adept twist and turns of Pogba.
Going by the latest reports of the situation, Pogba has already been approached by Real Madrid, Juventus and PSG to ply his trade for them in the forthcoming seasons.
However, all of them will have to cross an ocean in Manchester United, as the current hosts of Pogba have already approached his agent Mino Raiola and the player himself to extend his contract at Old Trafford.
Potential transfer scenarios that may involve Madrid, Juve and PSG
Ideally, it is expected that Pogba will be signing an extension for United but in case if he chooses not to, then there will be serious deliberations about his future as the new year arrives.
It seemed that Pogba may have opted to leave Manchester, but the arrival of Ronaldo, Varane and Sancho has almost cemented his residence in the United squad.
The sensational United midfielder will be eyeing a Champions League and a Premier League with the English stalwarts.
However, the only reason that Real Madrid stays in contention is that Real Madrid has openly expressed his admiration for Los Blancos and has also confessed that he would like to play for them someday.
With Zidane at the helm of affairs, the move seemed a lot likely to happen, but with Ancelotti in charge, he isn’t as big of a fan of Pogba. However, the inclusion of Mbappe in the following season may instigate Madrid’s interest in Pogba given his picture-perfect long balls that allows the French striker to perfectly adapt to his style.
Though nothing concrete is still on the table, should Pogba choose to leave, Madrid will have to contest Juve and PSG to get to the French midfielder first.
