Paul Pogba's Brother Comments On Manchester United Midfielder's Future
Florentin Pogba has admitted he would like to see brother Paul leave Manchester United and join Real Madrid this summer.
Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford all season and has been limited to eight appearances this campaign due to injury.
Madrid is his likeliest destination for the 26-year-old and older brother Florentin has had his say.
"At the moment, there's no talk about it, but I've always said that I want my brother to sign for Real Madrid," Florentin told El Chiringuito per Manchester Evening News.
"I want it, but at the moment, we (Florentin and others in the studio) are just chatting about it. And this summer, it'll be the same, because it's always like this.
"In the transfer window, it's always talk, like, 'Wow!'. Either you talk about it for a day, or for two months. How long have you been talking about it? Since 2016. We're in 2020. And it'll be talked about again."
United fans aren't happy with the older Pogba's comments and think it shows the World Cup winner wants to leave the Red Devils.
The sooner Paul Pogba leaves United, The better, Because we won't hear from his brother talking about him while at the club

This is the exact reason I can't wait until Paul Pogba leaves this football club.
It's not even him anymore, it's the toxic people around him.
We're winning and spirits are high, so why do his brother and agent insist on trying to ruin it? https://t.co/JjxdvMPx3k

@paulpogba really needs to shut his brother and agent up. If Paul wants to go, come out and say so.

Some fans have also pointed out the comments have come on the same day the Frenchman has returned to United training.
Free agent Florentin was also asked if he felt 'Los Blancos' could afford his brother's transfer fee and said it wouldn't be a 'money problem'.
He added: "It's not a money problem, because Madrid can put the money. I don't know how much [Paul] is worth. It's all politics and football. It started when Ronaldo signed at Madrid for €94m, and after that... [mimics explosion].
"There are youngsters who move for €80-90m that haven't won a trophy, and remember that when Ronaldo signed for Madrid, he had won trophies with Manchester United."
Do you think Paul Pogba will remain at Manchester United next season?
