Man Utd have taken the final decision on Paul Pogba’s future and finalized three major targets for the summer transfer window.
Paul Pogba stirred controversy last week when he hinted at a move to Real Madrid.
During the international duty with France, Pogba stated that a move to the Los Blancos is a ‘dream’ for any player. He further failed to confirm whether he has a long-term future at Manchester United, hinting that things change in the game.
Paul Pogba signed for Manchester United in 2016, making a comeback to the club after leaving three years earlier on a free transfer to Juventus.
The Frenchman has since been a key part of Manchester United’s midfield, and stepped up under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, scoring 9 goals and bagging 7 assists across all the competitions for the side.
Manchester United have now taken a final decision on the Frenchman’s future at the club.
Paul Pogba at Manchester United – Staying or Leaving?
According to English outlet Evening Standard, Manchester United will block any attempts to sign Paul Pogba.
Real Madrid are reported to be interested in the midfielder and Zinedine Zidane is claimed to have been planning a big money move for the player.
Moreover, Manchester United also plan to open the contract talks with the midfielder. Paul Pogba’s current contract at the club expires in 2021.
The Evening Standard also reveals that Manchester United plan to build the team around the midfielder. Solskjaer has stated in the past that Paul Pogba is the backbone of the side, and his prior experience of working with the Frenchman during his time in the youth setup seems to further his cause.
The side has also shortlisted a three-player summer transfer list, which are considered as priority signings for the side. The list includes Jadon Sancho, Kalidou Koulibaly and Bruno Fernandes.
Jadon Sancho has been linked with the club for some time following his exploits at Borussia Dortmund, while Kalidou Koulibaly was heavily speculated with a move to Manchester United last summer.

Whenever Pogba has an outstanding game, his fans look for reasons to justify his not-so-outstanding games as if he’ll always be the best player on the pitch as long as he’s not “held back”. My friends, it’s called inconsistency. Look it up.

Pogba is one of the most marketable players in the world. Doubt Woodward and the Glazers will let him go that easily.
