Paul Pogba produced a top performance against Chelsea as Manchester United romped home to a 4-0 victory. The French midfielder’s future has been uncertain ever since he dropped a bomb a few months ago when he claimed that he was looking for a new challenge. The English transfer window is over, but European clubs can still sign players from England. Real Madrid are known to be prime contenders to sign the French midfielder as Zidane is said to be an admirer of the World Cup winner.
Positive news for United
However, Manchester United are in for a piece of good news as reports from the Sun states that Real Madrid will end the pursuit for Pogba if they can land Neymar this summer. Paris Saint Germain have reportedly accepted the Brazilian’s demand to quit this summer.
Despite competition from Barcelona, Real Madrid are confident that they can get their man as Zidane is also said to be willing to involve Isco, Marcelo and Raphael Varane in the deal.
All this development will be positive news for the Red Devils as they don’t need to worry about Pogba’s future. United were anyway unlikely to sell him once the English transfer window closed as they wouldn’t be able to bring in his replacement. However, one couldn’t ignore the financial power of Real Madrid to lure Pogba as they have deep enough pockets to attract any star player to the Bernabeu.
There is no doubt that Pogba will be a big part of Ole’s plan this season and he is going to be highly influential for them. The midfielder has had issues in turning up with top performances regularly, but on his day he could be almost unplayable.
Moreover, Manchester United are not in the Champions League anymore, and that would have been a big worry for them as Real Madrid would be considered a big step up at the moment from Manchester United.
We think that Neymar’s signing would also mean that interest for Pogba in the future might even die as Real Madrid would have spent quite heavily in one transfer window. Also, the Frenchman could be deemed surplus once they have far too many star players at their disposal.
So if you are a United fan, then you would probably hope to see Neymar move to Real Madrid instead of Barcelona. Madrid’s interest for Pogba is said to hinge on Neymar currently, and it remains to be seen what would transpire in the next few days. For now, the recent update is a positive one for Pogba’s future at the Old Trafford.
