Paul Pogba: Update Emerges Regarding Manchester United Midfielder's Future

Paul Pogba in action for Manchester United

Unquestionably a world-class talent, Paul Pogba has won a host of major honours for club and country during his career.

From securing domestic success in the form of the League Cup in 2017 at Manchester United to lifting the World Cup with France in the following year, the midfielder is a natural-born winner.

With his current contract at Old Trafford set to expire in 2022, it will be intriguing to see what the future holds for Pogba.

Will he stay at Old Trafford? Which teams are looking to sign Pogba?

Let us shed some light on his current situation…

What’s the latest transfer news involving Paul Pogba?

Unsurprisingly, Pogba’s future has been the subject of a great deal of speculation.

After the Daily Star reported last month that the midfielder was demanding a new £500,000-per-week contract, an update has now emerged concerning the France international.

According to the Daily Mirror, United are reluctant to hand Pogba a significant pay rise despite entering talks with his agent Mino Raiola over fresh terms.

The midfielder’s market value is believed to be in the region of £55m which is a figure which could tempt Real Madrid to commit to a swoop as the Spanish side remain interested in him.

31/05/2021: According to page 44 of Sunday’s print edition of the Daily Star, Pogba’s future at United is set to be resolved this week.

The midfielder’s agent Mino Raiola will discuss his client’s contract demands with the Red Devils’ hierarchy.

If United are unwilling to agree to a substantial hike in Pogba’s wages, they could be willing to let him leave the Old Trafford this summer.

What are the odds on Paul Pogba’s next club?

French side Paris Saint-Germain are currently favourites to sign him from United according to Oddschecker.

Juventus, who may be in for a busy summer of transfer activity following a poor season in Serie A, are second favourites whilst Real Madrid are third on the list.

Barcelona are fourth in line to secure a deal for Pogba ahead of Bayern Munich.

Below is the rundown of the current odds:

Paris Saint-Germain – 5/1
Juventus – 7/1
Real Madrid – 10/1
Barcelona – 20/1
Bayern Munich – 33/1

What is Paul Pogba’s style of play?

Pogba is a dynamic player who is capable of excelling in several different positions due to his fantastic knowledge of the game.

As well as being extremely skilful, the midfielder has illustrated throughout his career an ability to provide a defence-splitting pass as he has created a total of 82 goals for his team-mates.

His latest assist came during United’s 3-1 victory over Aston Villa earlier this month.

Blessed with a great deal of physicality, Pogba has managed to thrive in the Premier League when fully-fit and is unquestionably one of the world’s best players when he is performing at his best.

Due to his versatility, it could be argued that the midfielder may be the perfect fit for PSG’s midfield which was lacking a driving force last season.

How many goals has Paul Pogba scored in his career?

Since making his professional debut for the Red Devils in a clash with Leeds United in 2011, Pogba has scored a total of 72 goals at the club level.

During the 80 games that he has played for France’s senior side, the 28-year-old has netted 10 goals.

Arguably Pogba’s most famous strike for his country came in the 2018 World Cup Final as he helped Didier Deschamps’ side seal a 4-2 victory over Croatia.
