France international midfielder Paul Pogba’s future at Serie A club remains unclear. Premier league giant Manchester United have been strongly linked with the Juventus midfielder in recent days, and the conclusion of the European championship could well speed up any potential move.
According to report, things should, in theory, start happening, after recently meeting with his agent Mino Raiola. Undoubtedly, the France midfielder Pogba is very happy at Serie A champions Juventus, but according to Spanish newspaper Marca, the player wants the Manchester United transfer, with Spanish champions Real Madrid seen as an alternative. Maybe Paul Pogba feels he has unfinished business at Old Trafford?
This report is similar to French newspaper L’Equipe’s claims last week ( as reported by the Metro ), which states Paul Pogba had informed his teammates he wants a return to Premier league club Manchester United.
According to Marca, personal terms are agreed with the player at about €13m a year, after tax, on a 5 year contract. However, there’s still no agreement with the Italian club.
Juventus is thought to be willing to keep Pogba for at least one more season, as they attempt to win the Uefa Champions League, and they’re pretty sure his valuation wouldn’t drop between now and next summer.
Personally, I believe Manchester United will end up getting the player. The most important thing here is the fact that Pogba himself wants to complete the move, if the report by Marca is true that is. Players have so much power these days and with Mino Raiola involved, I will not be surprised if the deal is done.
Dortmund also did say they were not going to let Henrikh Mkhitaryan leave but Mino Raiola managed to pull off the deal and the player is now going to play for United next season. If he has done it before, he certainly can do it again.
And signing Paul Pogba will certainly give Manchester United the much needed boost in their bid to win the Premier league next season. With the business done so far, United are clearly one of the favorites for the title. Adding Paul Pogba to the squad will surely send a statement of intent to other Premier League and European Clubs.
