Despite his impressive display in Manchester United’s 2-1 victory over Chelsea on Sunday, Paul Pogba is preparing to leave Old Trafford for the second time in his career following the breakdown of his relationship with Jose Mourinho, claims The Sun.
The situation is apparently so dire that Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, is already looking for his client’s next club, holding talks with Real Madrid over a potential transfer in the summer.
The report adds the interesting footnote that Juventus have a £53 million buy-back clause for the Frenchman, although it’s unclear how exactly they can activate that advantage for a player they sold for £89m in 2016.
Pogba’s United future looks increasingly uncertain after he was dropped by Mourinho for the recent Premier League victory over Huddersfield and found himself on the bench again at Sevilla last week.
Though, Pogba played the full 90 minutes in the 2-1 victory over Chelsea last night at old Trafford, but he hasn’t been in the good books of Jose Mourinho, since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal.
Speculations are rife that Pogba decided to leave manchester United because the club has failed to give him contract extension, with the aim of collecting above Sanchez who is presently on a 350,000 pounds, as against the 290,000 pounds received by Pogba since his move to the Manchester club last summer from Juventus.
