Manchester United may well lose Paul Pogba this summer, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer probably hoping that his star midfielder stays.
The ball is in United’s court with the player under contract for another three years. With that said, you’d imagine Real Madrid (and possibly Juventus) will push hard for the Frenchman’s signature.
According to a report from Spanish media outlet Marca, Madrid has set themselves a deadline date of July 1st to seal a move for Pogba.
That’s the date in which Los Blancos stars will return for pre-season, with Madrid not wanting to get ‘drawn into a circus’ regarding a potential transfer.
Again, I’ll reiterate United aren’t going to sell unless a monumental offer comes in. It’s all playing into the Red Devils’ hands at this point because deals like this take time and I’m not sure that two weeks is enough unless Madrid blow us out of the water with an outrageous sum.
I think Pogba knows this as otherwise he wouldn’t have been so public with the comments. Usually, you’d expect a player to keep this private in order to maintain a good relationship with the fans, but I guess after his spat with a fan on the final day of the season, that bond was already trending downwards…
