Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba looks set to have made up his mind to leave Old Trafford next summer, according to various reports making the rounds. The Manchester Evening News reported that the French World Cup winner is disgruntled with life under manager Olé Gunnar Solskjær and is seeking a move away from the club for a better life.
Pogba left United as a teenager who found games hard to come by under legendary boss Sir Alex Ferguson. He left for a token and joined Italian Serie A giants Juventus. The 27-year-old midfielder then returned to the English side in the summer of 2016 – a move engineered and sanctioned by then-boss José Mourinho.
Before Mourinho’s sacking by the United board, the Portuguese manager fell out a couple of times with Pogba, and famously labeled the player as a “virus” and a huge problem in the team. The pair fell-out in training and the following day Mourinho retrieved the captain’s armband he had given to the player earlier.
United eventually called time to Mourinho’s reign at the club after relieving him of his duties following a poor run of form that saw the Old Trafford outfit struggling at the bottom half of the table. The club’s hierarchy then decided to bring Olé as interim manager and after his first few games in charge, Pogba looked to have a new life breathed into him. The player flourished under Olé in a couple of games then, helping the club climb up the table.
However, he has been a shadow of his true abilities in the past months and reports have emerged of him wanting to move away having reached a low point at the Theater of Dreams.
The reports claim that the Frenchman will be looking to join either Real Madrid, PSG, or return to Juventus.
