Paul Pogba’s brother Florentin has revealed that he expects his sibling to join Spanish giants Real Madrid or Barcelona when he leaves Manchester United.
France international Pogba has been in sensational form for Manchester United since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over as caretaker boss just before Christmas, having struggled under previous manager Jose Mourinho.
Florentin, 28, admitted that his brother’s recent rejuvenation is down to the Mourinho leaving Old Trafford, and that Paul was unhappy under the Portuguese coach.
Now plying his trade with Elche in the Spanish second division, Florentin believes that there are only three clubs that Paul could join that would be a step up from Manchester United.
These clubs he states are Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City, although he admits that Paul wouldn’t consider a move to United’s city rivals, making La Liga the most likely destination.
“The sacking of Mourinho has been key,” Pogba told Spanish Publication AS.
“Paul wasn’t happy and it was clear to see. Now with Solskjaer, everything has improved. He knows my brother from their time during the reserves.
“We like tiki-taka. I always watch their matches or go to the Camp Nou.
“When my brother leaves Manchester United he can only go to three teams to improve: City, Real Madrid or Barca. He will not go to City so he will come to Spain, to Barca or Real Madrid.”
Manchester United turned down an offer from Barcelona for Pogba during the summer, with the 25-year-old reportedly keen on moving to the Nou Camp. However, it has been suggested that he is now open to extending his contract at Old Trafford after Mourinho’s departure.
