Pogba’s incredible response when asked about Real Madrid move
Paul Pogba’s future at Manchester United continues to be the subject of much speculation, and the France international midfielder appears quite happy to keep fans guessing over where his future lies.
With one year left on his deal at Man Utd, Pogba is not guaranteed to remain at Old Trafford as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has struggled to find a spot for him in his starting XI.
Real Madrid, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain, meanwhile, have all been linked with a potential summer transfer for the 28-year-old.
On Wednesday, Pogba was a guest of Spanish television show El Chiringuito, hosted by controversial host Josep Pedrerol, who went viral due to his interview with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez during the Super League saga.
Pogba, though, cleverly shut down the journalist when he was asked about the prospect of moving from Man Utd to Real Madrid this summer.
“I was waiting for this one,” Pogba, who was doing the interview from a plane, smiled when the question was put to him. “I’ve just arrived, so I’ll say thank you for everything. I’ve just arrived at where I’m holidaying and I have to go, everyone is waiting for me!”
At that point, Pogba burst out laughing and signed off in a chirpy fashion, with Pedrerol responding similarly.
Pogba’s likely future
Pogba has a year left on his Man Utd deal, which means he is inevitably in the shop window as he can leave for free next summer.
An immediate move, however, could be difficult to secure. Real Madrid and Juventus, two of the clubs most closely linked with him, are unlikely to sanction moves because of their financial issues.
PSG, meanwhile, have already signing Georginio Wijnaldum of a free transfer this summer, making a deal for the France star unlikely.
Man Utd, therefore, have the opportunity to extend Pogba’s contract and keep him at Old Trafford for the foreseeable future.
