Pogba hurt after being booed by fans and is now set to leave Man United
Paul Pogba is reportedly in negotiations with Juventus and Real Madrid about leaving Manchester United when his contract expires at the end of the season.
Despite some shining moments, Pogba has failed to live up to expectations since returning to Old Trafford in the summer of 2016, and he is now ready to quit the Manchester club after six years for a transfer elsewhere.
This failure has sparked discontent among certain Old Trafford followers, as evidenced by the midfielder being booed and jeered by his own fans over the weekend, which has been claimed to have upset the World Cup champion.
That is according to Sky Sports, who believe that the 29-year-old is increasingly likely to quit United when his contract expires at the end of the season.
According to the source, numerous teams, including Real Madrid and Juventus, are in talks with Pogba’s representation about signing him on a free transfer in the summer, and it will be difficult for the Frenchman to turn things around from here.
Pogba has appeared in 157 Premier League games for United, scoring 29 goals and assisting on another 38. The Frenchman won the League Cup and the Europa League during his second stint at Old Trafford, but the results have been disappointing given the excitement that accompanied the 29-year-recruitment old’s in 2016.
Pogba’s career may benefit from a fresh start, as the World Cup champion is still a terrific player. The midfielder requires a strong team around him, as he did with the French national side, and a move to Real Madrid could be just what the United man requires.
On his day, Pogba can be one of the best midfielders in the world to watch, and it’s a shame to see him perform so poorly for United. It is hoped that whoever he moves on to will be able to bring out the best in the 29-year-old on a more consistent basis.
