Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is set leave the club next summer for free as the French midfielder is not going to be signing a contract extension according to a report by ESPN. Pogba was signed from Juventus for a then-world record fee of £89.1 million but never managed to fulfill his potential during his second spell at the club. Pogba, reportedly has refused to sign contract extensions multiple times and the club has to come to an acceptance it’s no longer going to happen.
Even though Pogba’s career at Manchester United will not called a “success”, his consistent form for France and his overall marketability will make him a very attractive free agent to sign for all the top clubs in Europe. The same ESPN report mention Real Madrid, Juventus and PSG as the clubs which are interested in signing the Frenchman.
For many United fans, Pogba’s resigning for a huge amount and his subsequent career at the club is a chapter they will want to quickly forget about. Although from time to time, Pogba has shown world class form, it has always been inconsistent. This season perfectly encapsulates Pogba’s career at United. In his first 4 games, he recorded 7 assists and articles were written about the chance of him breaking the Premier League assist record. But now after being sent off against Liverpool in a 5-0 humiliation, he has been banned for the next 3 days.
