Paul Pogba Says “Timing Right” For Summer Manchester United Exit

Paul Pogba Says Timing Right For Summer Manchester United Exit


“There is a lot of talking and a lot of thinking,” the 26-year-old told reporters in Tokyo on Sunday.

“I have been for three years in Manchester and have been doing great — some good moments and some bad moments, like everybody and like everywhere else.

“I think for me it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else. I am thinking of this — to have a new challenge somewhere else.”

Despite scoring 16 goals this season, half of which came from the penalty spot, Pogba was often criticised for his contribution under both Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as United limped to a sixth-placed finish in the Premier League.

Should Pogba move on, United are likely to seek a higher fee than they spent on the midfielder in 2016.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has expressed an interest in bringing his countryman to the Spanish capital, while Juve are said to be looking to slash their wage bill in order to lure Pogba back to Turin.

The summer overhaul in the transfer market at Old Trafford has already begun with the signing of Welsh winger Daniel James from Swansea for an initial £15 million ($19 million) fee this week.

The Red Devils have also been linked with bids for defenders Harry Maguire and Issa Diop and Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff.
