According to the reports emerged from ESPN, Barcelona are pondering on making a flamboyant move for French midfielder Paul Pogba next summer.
Paul Pogba’s latest claims to play for Real Madrid one day have had already rekindled the rumours of him leaving Manchester United sooner than later. Speaking to the media, Pogba admitted,
“Of course, every footballer would love to play for Real Madrid and would dream about that. It’s a dream of mine, so why not one day?”
With Pogba’s current contract at Manchester United set to expire in June next year, one team could snap him up for free in the next summer transfer market. However, United have an option to extend it by one year.
The French World Cup-winning midfielder was previously thought to extend his contract at United after a fine run of form saw United finishing 3rd in the league and wrapping up the UEFA Champions League spot with a final day win against Leicester City.
His agent Mino Raiola also made the following comments,
“Pogba is key player for Man Utd, they’ve an important project and he’s 100% included. Man Utd will not accept any bid on this summer to sell Pogba. We’re going to speak about a new contract soon, no stress.”
However, as things stand now, a summer move to Spain seems to be a viable option for the midfielder maestro.
The Mancunian club have had started the 2020-21 campaign in an absolutely bizarre manner, losing two of their last three games in the Premier League.
And despite playing out of his preferred position, Pogba has had endured loads of criticism from both fans and pundits.
Should this remain the case for the remainder of what seems likely to be a long season for Manchester United, the Reds could lose a world-class talent next summer or in 2022 for free.
