There are many questions and discussions about whether the French World-Class midfielder Paul Pogba will remain at Old Trafford when the new football season starts. One of the Man United latest transfer news is that Pogba is keen on leaving United for Real Madrid, but his team-mate Juan Mata, who had recently signed a two-year contract, has been urging the Frenchman to stay with his club.
Juan Mata urges Paul Pogba to remain at Man United
Juan Mata has hailed is teammate Paul Pogba as one of the best players that he has seen, and has taken it upon himself to try to convince Pogba to remain at Manchester United Football Club. Mata said that he knows Pogba as a fantastic player, a very good guy, very positive and has good influence for everyone at the club. Also, the metro news cited Juan Mata saying that he thinks Pogba is happy and that he brings everyone together at the club. He also stated that has a teammate and friend of Pogba, he hopes that the midfielder stays at the Theater of Dreams (Old Trafford) because he has been a very good player for the club, but he cannot say anything else and speak for other people.
The attacking midfielder has urged the central midfielder, Paul Pogba to remain at the club and reject the advances given to him by Real Madrid to join them. Should Pogba leave United and join Real Madrid he will join a former premier league star-player Eden Hazard who played for rival club Chelsea Football Club. Pogba would also join former legendary French player and midfielder Zinedine Zidane who is now Real Madrid’s coach.
Pogba had stated earlier this summer that he wanted a ‘new challenge’ away from Manchester United after three years at the club. Real Madrid are keen on signing the midfielder but they need to raise funds to meet the 150 million pound price tag placed on the player by Man United.
Man United latest transfer news: Pogba move to Madrid depends on Bale
There are more news about Paul Pogba being transferred from Man United to Real Madrid, but the transfer depends on the Welsh star player Gareth Bale moving/transferring to another club from Real Madrid. News coming out of Spain is that the Spanish Giants, Real Madrid need to sell Gareth Bale in order to sign Pogba.
Earlier this month, Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raoila revealed a very big secret in the premier league, or what some may say is the biggest secret in the premier league that Paul Pogba wants to leave United for Real Madrid. Well, this may not be a surprise since Paul Pogba was cited earlier before the end of the English Premier league that Real Madrid is a great club and that any player would dream of playing for Real Madrid. This statement that Pogba had rumours started that he wanted to leave United for Real Madrid from that time and now it seems so true.
Paul Pogba was signed by Manchester United back in 2016 for $110 million, but has failed to really live up to the lofty standards that he set at Juventus. Real Madrid’s coach, Zinedine Zidane says he is a big admirer of Paul Pogba, and if the Frenchman should leave United, then the most logical destination would be Real Madrid.
However, Real Madrid has a two-fold problem here to sign Paul Pogba. The first and biggest problem is that Manchester United is determined to hold onto Pogba, especially when manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reiterated earlier this week that he wants to keep the World-Cup winner and build his team around him. Solskjaer has said this during last summer transfer window and even in December before he took on the mantle as United’s interim coach.
The second problem is that Manchester United spent $110 million to sign Paul Pogba and will be looking to gain about twice the amount for him, if the club decided to sell him. Presently, Real Madrid is only prepared to pay about $165 million, and no more, and due to the fact that the club has already spent $340 million on transfers this summer, they will have to sell players in order to gain enough funds to launch a bid for Pogba. One such player Real is most likely to sell is Gareth Bale, who had transferred to the club from Tottenham Hot Spurs.
To sign Pogba, the Spanish Giants who are 13 time UEFA Champions League, winners will have to sell Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez to raise $110 million. While Rodriguez is more likely to be sold (since he was playing for Bayern Munich on loan), the future of Gareth Bale is morel complicated. Zidane had officially ended Bale’s six-year run at Madrid whe he said over the weekend that he hoped the Welshman would find another club by the end of the week.
Bale’s camp did not like the comments and the player’s agent, Jonathan Barnett was cited calling Zinedine’s Zidane’s comments as disgraceful at the weekend and reiterated that Bale will leave the club on his own terms. Sky Sports quoted Barnett saying: “There will be no makeshift deals to get him out of the club.”
Barnett also stated that Bale is one of the est players on the planet and that he can guarantee that the player will not go out on loan.
However, solving this problem with Gareth Bale is crucial for Real Madrid as they need to raise funds to make $110 million so they can bid for Paul Pogba. However, it seems as if Gareth Bale doesn’t seem to budge any at all about these transfer news and so this makes it more difficult for Real, which would be good news for Man United since they want to keep Pogba.
Juventus in race to sign Paul Pogba
Mino Raoila said earlier this month that his client is “in the process” of negotiating a transfer from Old Trafford. Juventus has been linked with a move to bring back the midfielder back to Italy, but Real Madrid is leading the race to sign the French star.
But Pogba could end up staying put at Old Trafford as only three weeks remain before the new EPL season begins.
Solskjaer not worried about fans targeting Pogba over link to Real Madrid
Some Manchester United fans have been targeting Paul Pogba over his link to Real Madrid. But Ole Gunnar solskjaer says he is not worried over that. According to one Man United latest transfer news by goal.com Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he is not worried about the fans’ treatment of Pogba after the news of the links being made to join Real Madrid this summer.
Solskjaer said he does not expect the Red Devils fans to target the 26-year-old, World-Cup winner when they get underway with the new season, saying only a small portion of Man United supporters will be angered by his presence.
“No [concerns],” Solskjaer told reporters. “Of course, there will be a small minority (who will criticise him)” “Me and the players will testify he’s not been a problem. We’re just grateful when he performs as he does.”
While the pre-season continues and more and more news surface around the future of Paul Pogba it’s quite interesting to learn about the out-come of events as we look forward to seeing whether Pogba will still be wearing the Old Trafford #6 Jersey at the club or will be playing for Real Madrid or Juventus. Only time will tell what will happen by now and three weeks away. For all the Man United fans that want Pogba to stay, let us all hope that he does. And I think that majority of the fans want him to stay. But the question still remains: Will Paul Pogba stay at or leave Man United?
Whether he leaves or stays it’s still one Manchester United Football club.
GLORY MAN UNITED!!
