Manchester United seem to have been unable to exert their efforts to hold back the departure of French midfielder Paul Pogba. Recent reports claim that the former Juventus star has made up his mind to leave Old Trafford.
In fact, news of Pogba’s desire to leave Manchester United has been echoing for the past two years. It’s just that, who knows what happened to the French player in the end remained at Old Trafford.
Pogba himself was bought by Manchester United from Juventus in the 2016 summer transfer window for 105 million euros. His glory with the defending champions Italy Serie A is expected to continue with the Red Devils. Unfortunately, so far the performance is uncertain.
Pogba’s position is not too comfortable. He was always the main target when MU lost, always criticized. Even when sidelined for months because of injuries like this season, the 2018 World Cup winner is still the subject of criticism and discussion.
As reported by the Manchester Evening News, Pogba has informed his colleagues at Manchester United that he will leave Old Trafford. The reason is because they cannot refuse the tempting offer from the Spanish giant, Real Madrid.
Not yet clear how MU squad’s reaction after hearing the news, but reportedly they support whatever the decision Pogba. They considered that it was better for Pogba to leave, than to survive but continued to be the target of criticism.
For information, Pogba himself was rumored to have joined Real Madrid in the transfer market last summer. Reportedly even negotiations have been underway, but stagnated after the Red Devils camp reluctant to reduce the player’s tag.
The withdrawal of Real Madrid at that time did not mean the white flag. Pogba is still one of Los Blancos manager’s dream players, Zinedine Zidane. Moving to Madrid is also the best solution for Pogba. There, it is clear that Pogba will get a new start to improve his career.
However, the future of the player is not entirely determined by the player himself. Manchester United certainly do not want to lose Pogba. But on the one hand they also have to think about the fate of the players who are constantly being attacked by criticism.
