Paul Pogba will turn down a new Manchester United contract to force Real Madrid move.
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba will reject a new contract offer from the club to force a move to Real Madrid.
The Frenchman remained desperate to leave the Red Devils this summer, but the club decided to price him out by demanding a hefty sum. The English club reportedly wanted £150 million for their number 6, who contract runs down in 2021.
As for Zinedine Zidane, the Real Madrid manager is still dreaming about the impossibility to lure him before the transfer window officially shuts for entire Europe on Saturday. This has forced the former Juventus midfielder’s agent to work harder towards a move away from Old Trafford. Additionally, the 26-year-old desires to play under the world-cup winning legend Zinedine Zidane, who wants him the move to go through.
According to the Spanish publication Marca, Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola met Manchester United’s representatives on Wednesday to state his client’s intentions about not willing to commit his long-term future with the club in order to drive a move to Real Madrid.
After the British transfer window drew curtains in the second week of August, Manchester United have iterated that they will not change their position. The club does not negotiate with Real Madrid, who remain with the same burning desire over the probability of a transfer.
Mino Raiola and Paul Pogba are willing to follow Eden Hazard’s footpath, by turning down a new contract from Manchester United. The Belgian wanted to leave following the 2018 World Cup, but new manager Maurizio Sarri wanted him to keep because of the lack of time available to buy a replacement.
Since the midfielder would have only one year left on his contract, the Los Blancos would be benefitted by paying a lesser amount comparatively from this summer.

People say I’ll defend #MUFC over anything. Not true. Pogba & De Gea would not be replaceable from within (unless Henderson becomes world class at Sheff Utd!). But Martial centrally instead of Lukaku, & Greenwood instead of Sanchez – I honestly believe that’s far better for Utd.
