Mathias Pogba, brother of world champion Paul Pogba, has stated that the Manchester United midfielder has not yet made a decision about his future. There are four options the 28 year old can choose from.
In less than twelve months, Pogba’s contract with the Red Devils will expire – there have not yet been any targeted discussions about staying at Old Trafford. Had already at the beginning of summer 90min reveals that Pogba will indeed take the time to consider and weigh his options before making a decision.
Mathias, one of Pogba’s older brothers, has confirmed nothing has been decided yet – despite recent reports claiming that the arrival of Cristian Ronaldo would push him to a new contract with United.
“Paul has not yet decided whether or not to stay next summer,” he said The beach bar. “It’s his decision – he’s very comfortable at Manchester United now, this season … then we’ll see. Let’s see when the time is right for a decision.”
Sources have confirmed that as of this writing, Pogba has four possible options to consider: Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Real Madrid.
United is keen to start talks on an extension. However, we know this is not easy as some members of the club hierarchy are not convinced that Pogba deserves a huge raise as his performance at the club is far from constant.
Pogba is currently making around 350,000 euros a week, but it’s believed that his reps, led by super agent Mino Raiola, want a 50 percent increase that would bring him to at least 525,000 euros a week.
His former club Juventus Turin, which he left to return to United in 2016, are also keen to bring him back to Turin, while the financially strong PSG have already had talks with Raiola and made it clear that they would like him to join theirs Hometown Paris would bring back.
As they proved this summer, their specialty is distributing huge salary packages to free agents.
The fourth team to compete for Pogba’s service is Real Madrid, who have long had a plan to sign the French star. A few years ago, former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane and President Florentino Perez forged a transfer plan that included the signing of three French players – N’Golo Kante (who was later swapped for Eduardo Camavinga), Kylian Mbappe and Pogba.
They already landed Camavinga this summer and both Pogba and Mbappe have their sights set – both could move to Madrid for free next summer.
