Paul Pogba's Departure From Manchester United 'Appears To Be Programmed'

Rumours concerning the future of Paul Pogba continue to swirl, with the latest talk being that the Frenchman's departure from Manchester United 'appears to be scheduled'.

That's according to L'Equipe, who say he has even told some of his United teammates of his desire to leave Old Trafford for a second time.

It's also reported that United, who have made no movements to extend the contract he only has two years left on, would be willing to listen to an offer if one does arrive from Real Madrid.

The Red Devils would prefer to sell him this summer as opposed to in a year's time.


In the last international break, Pogba angered United fans when he flirted with Real Madrid again following the return of Real Madrid as manager.

Though Pogba stressed he was enjoying life as a Manchester United, he did not exactly quash talk of him becoming a Galactico at some point in the future.

"Like I've always said, Real Madrid is a dream for anyone," Pogba is quoted as saying by The Mirror.

"It's one of the biggest clubs in the world. There is also [Zinedine] Zidane as a coach and it's a dream for anybody who likes football. For now, I'm at Manchester. We don't know what the future holds. I'm at Manchester and I'm happy."

Should United cash in on Pogba this summer?

Sound off in the comments.
