Spanish reports have all but confirmed the biggest transfer fiasco for January as Paul Pogba and agent conspire with Real Madrid to force through an exit from Manchester United in the winter transfer window.
As per reports in Spanish Newspaper COPE, Manchester United’s World Cup-winning midfielder Paul Pogba is done with Old Trafford and is shoring up a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid. The midfield talisman Paul Pogba is forcing an exit from United as early as January 2020.
Reports in Spanish media suggest talks are already on between Pogba’s agent and Real Madrid around a January move for €150 Million.
Real Madrid’s interest in Pogba is not new and Pogba himself is hell-bent on moving to the Spanish capital. Currently recovering from injury, Pogba hasn’t played for Manchester United since the 30th of September. And if reports in Spanish media are to be believed, he might have already worn the no. 6 United shirt for the last time.
The lanky midfield maestro has been on the sidelines after he picked up an ankle injury in September. However, while the Red Devils fans wait for Pogba to grace the turf at Old Trafford again, a recent video of his playing basketball has infuriated a number of supporters.
Paul Pogba’s United Exit: The final nail in the coffin?
As per COPE, Pogba’s video playing basketball has left the top bosses at United less than impressed. Furthermore, the Spanish newspaper cited dressing room sources that Pogba is fully fit but not in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans anymore.
The ex-United striker and current Manager Solskjaer has continuously backed Pogba despite his antics thus far. However, it seems that the Norwegian is finally done with the Frenchman and has decided that enough is enough.
Pogba himself is hellbent on an exit from United as soon as possible and talks between agent Mino Raiola and Real Madrid boss Florentino Perez are already on. Furthermore, reports from Spain also suggest that Zidane is serious about landing his ‘Target Numero Uno’ in January. Real Madrid is readying a € 150 million bid to bring Pogba to Santiago Bernabeu in January.
