Football – Mercato – PSG
As Paul Pogba takes the path of a free start from Manchester United at the end of the season, the current trend clearly seems to be in the direction of a move to Real Madrid.
Announced in the sights of Paris Saint-Germain during the last summer transfer window, Paul Pogba ultimately remained at Manchester United this season. The Parisian club was going it alone in this case, but it was hampered by the claims of Red devils and ended up putting the file away in early August after the arrival of Leo messi. However, next summer the problem with the English club’s demands will no longer exist. Indeed, Paul pogba will come to the end of his contract on June 30 and, for now, nothing suggests an extension of his commitment to the English team. Therefore, the question is what will be the identity of the club that will host him during the next summer transfer window. The echoes published in the press are clear, there are three possible destinations: the PSG once again, the Juventus, but also the Real Madrid. And it is this third option cited that seems to be gaining momentum.
Real Madrid are on pole position in race to sign Pogba
Indeed, despite the colossal salary claims of Paul pogba and his entourage, who would like to see him keep his net salary of 12M € / year at Manchester United without forgetting the signing bonus that would accompany his arrival as part of a free transfer, the Madrid club would be truly seduced by the market opportunity that represents Paul pogba. According to information disclosed by MARCA this Saturday, the Spanish team would have decided to closely follow the evolution of its situation and the movements of its agent Mino raiola close to Red devils, of PSG and some Juventus. In fact, the ambition of real Madrid would be clear, namely that of recruiting him. Madrid’s decision-makers would see in Paul pogba a player able to be an immediate reinforcement for the team, unlikeAurélien Tchouaméni which rather embodies the future, while being able to take over from Luka Modric, whose contract will expire at the end of the season.
What does the main interested party think? According to information from MARCA, Paul pogba could just lean in favor of an arrival at real Madrid. The 28-year-old would indeed have a particular attraction for the club from the Spanish capital, which he already wanted to join when Zinedine Zidane occupied his bench. The departure of the French technician would not change the trend, the 2018 World Champion would still be seduced by the possibility of arriving at the real Madrid where he would find Karim Benzema and eventually Kylian Mbappé – the 22-year-old striker coming to the end of his contract at PSG on June 30 and which should bounce back among Merengue in all likelihood. Thus, still according to the Spanish media quoted, the fact of being able to evolve alongside his two teammates in French team could seduce Paul pogba, while Karim Benzema would love to work with him on a daily basis.
Clearly, everything indicates that the real Madrid has a boulevard in this file, despite the presence of PSG and some Juventus. Stay at the Casa Blanca to achieve this pole position by being active from January 1, the date from which Paul pogba will be legally allowed to sign a pre-contract with a club for next summer.
