Huge update on Paul Pogba’s move to Real Madrid
Manchester United star Paul Pogba has been sensationally linked with a move away from the club in recent weeks, after seeing his position change and form drop following the arrival of Alexis Sanchez.
However, it seems one club who will not be making a move for the player is Real Madrid, with Guillem Balague claiming the La Liga side are not interested in landing the player.
“It is normal that when things are not perfect with the superstar of a big club, stories emerge in the media,” he told Sky Sports.
“Regarding Pogba, a leak to French publication L’Equipe suggested he wants a different position on the pitch to improve his performances.
“When reports like that emerge, don’t be surprised that reports claiming Real Madrid want him soon follow.
“But they don’t, they do not have the money to finance such a deal after they buy their main targets this summer. Perhaps more importantly, Real president Florentino Perez does not view him as a target.
“I will tell you an interesting story about Pogba and Real Madrid.
“When he decided to leave Manchester United he was offered to Real Madrid B for €100,000.
“The coach of the team at the time told Florentino: ‘Bring him to me when he cost €100m’.
“Well, Pogba does cost more than that now, but he is not the player they want for next season.”
United boss Mourinho has been at pains to make it clear he is not at odds with Pogba, and that the player himself accepts he’s been poor of late.
The manager said that the player is the same as ever, and their relationship is not in trouble – and that he would not be leaving the club or going anywhere else come the summer.
