Paul Pogba Has Told Manchester United Which Club He Wants To Join In The Summer

Paul Pogba has reportedly informed Manchester United that he wants to join Real Madrid in the summer.

Pogba is out of contract at the end of the season and is expected to leave on a free transfer, six years after rejoining United from Juventus for a then world-record fee of £89m.

The 28-year-old is now free to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs and is reportedly in talks with Paris Saint-Germain over a potential summer move to the Parc des Princes.

However, the France international is said to prefer a move to Real Madrid.

Pogba has been repeatedly linked with Madrid in recent seasons and has previously admitted it is a "dream" of his to join the Spanish giants.

According to The Star, Pogba has held talks with senior figures at United about his future and has informed them of his desire to join Madrid.

United have not offered Pogba a new deal and are said to be prepared to let him leave for free this summer.

Pogba is yet to feature under interim manager Ralf Rangnick because of a groin injury, but he could return to the side in the coming weeks after resuming full training.

Rangnick has suggested he would be willing to play Pogba in the final months of the season, even though the midfielder is likely to leave the club at the end of the campaign.

Rangnick said: "My contract as a manager is also expiring in the summer. For us, we have the same goal.

“We have the same ambition, to be as successful as we can possibly be in the next three or four months.

"For me it's not a question if a player has an expiring contract, the question is how much does he still want to be a part of this group, how much does he still feel emotionally and physically on board.

"As long as this is the case, why shouldn't Paul Pogba play now after two and half months of injury?

“He's fully fit again now and he also wants to show up, he wants to show the fans of Manchester United, the board, the whole world what kind of player he can be.

"And even if it's only to show enough for a new contract elsewhere, he will be highly motivated to do that, so why should I then not play him?

Advert

"There is a difference in how players deal with their current situation. How do they handle that?

“If they handle that in a professional way, an ambitious way, of course I will play players, although they have a contact expiring in the summer."
