Paul Pogba wants to leave Manchester United this summer and will push hard for a move to Real Madrid.
Sunday’s 1-1 draw with already relegated Huddersfield Town ended United’s hopes of finishing in the top four, with a lack of Champions League football and the club’s inability to compete for major honours a key factor in Pogba’s decision to leave.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is facing a major rebuilding job at the club and Pogba has decided he wants a new challenge, the midfielder having instructed agent Mino Raiola to begin talks with the club’s hierarchy at the end of the season.
According to ESPN United’s public stance is that the Frenchman is not for sale, but internally have valued the 2018 World Cup winner at around €160m.
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is believed to have made Pogba a priority signing this summer, though the Spanish giants are likely to ready a bid in the region of €120m.
