Odds Shorten Drastically On Paul Pogba To Join Real Madrid
Paul Pogba put in a massively impressive performance for Euro 2016 hosts France last night against Switzerland, but couldn't help his side past Man of the Match Yann Sommer in the Swiss goal as the two played out a drab 0-0 draw.
The Juventus midfielder had four shots, hit the bar and made three key passes in the game; whilst having more touches, making more passes and gaining possession on more occasions than any French player.
It then emerged this morning that Paul Pogba was having 'talks' with Real Madrid. According to his agent, Mino Raiola (who also revealed his client Zlatan Ibrahimovic wants 'revenge' on Pep Guardiola) the industrious midfielder has held talks with the Madrid club and bookies have slashed the price on him joining.
A few days ago, he was 12/1 to join them and has now been slashed to 5/6 with some bookies. A move to the Bernabeu would see Pogba follow in the footsteps of French legend and now Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane - who made the move from Turin in 2001.
However, it seems Pogba has been linked with a move away from the Bianconeri since joining in 2012, so don't be surprised if he stays another year to play in the Serie A and attempt to bring the Champions League back to the Juventus Stadium. Therefore, we think the smart money could be on Pogba to stay with Juventus at 5/2.
