It looks like Paul Pogba might have to stay in Manchester United past this summer. The British club want at least €200 million to let the midfielder go and Madrid have not submitted a formal offer just yet. Furthermore, a report from MARCA published today suggests that Madrid president Florentino Perez has told Zinedine Zidane that Pogba’s signing is almost impossible.
However, agent Mino Raiola delivered some intriguing quotes when the reporters asked him about the situation just when he was visiting Juventus to complete the deal for De Ligt.
“Nothing is certain yet. Pogba staying in Manchester? I live my life day by day and we’ll see what happens. The end of this story isn’t written yet, we’re here now but tomorrow you never know,” said Raiola.
Both Pogba and his agent have said this summer that the best thing for the midfielder would be to leave the club. Still, United want to keep him around and coach Solskjaer proved it during a press conference.
“What Paul said did not bother me, I know what he was thinking. I can give him a new challenge. I’ve said it in the past, if you have Pogba on your roster you have to build your squad around him,” said Solskjaer, who is trying to convince Pogba of staying in the British club.
Manchester United don’t need to sell and it looks like Madrid might need to consider other options for the midfield line, even though Raiola will surely work hard to get Pogba out of Manchester.
