According to a report from Sky Germany, Manchester United star Paul Pogba could well be on the move this summer with agent Mino Raiola apparently in talks with both Real Madrid and former club Juventus – resulting in supporters blasting the Frenchman.
Pogba, who has had to sit out the majority of this campaign so far with a niggling ankle injury, has been at the centre of a transfer saga (Daily Mail) with his future at Old Trafford currently in doubt. The 26-year-old, despite having only started five games in the Premier League this season, has eclipsed fellow central midfielders Scott McTominay and Fred in terms of passing contribution – having averaged 2.3 key passes and 0.7 through balls in the games he’s played whilst also notching two assists, as per WhoScored.com.
Indeed, this could highlight Pogba’s influence in the middle of the park when he can feature, and last season he performed well with an impressive 13 goals and nine assists. However, some United supporters have blasted the player over rumours he could be set to depart – with one fan in particular drawing comparisons with former Liverpool man Phillipe Coutinho.
Coutinho, who left Anfield for Barcelona in 2018 for a £142 million deal (talkSPORT), has since gone on to watch his ex-club win the Champions League and dominate the Premier League this season – with a fan-notion emerging that Pogba could suffer the same fate should he campaign for a dream move away.
With that in mind, here’s what United supporters had to say down below.
This is no longer news. Dude is finished at Manutd. We need new signings. Incoming not outgoing.

Pogba’s career could end up like coutinho’s if he’s not careful ! I’m not saying he doesn’t deserve a move away from us but I feel like if we buy some good players this transfer and next and he settles down, he can help the team get back to its standards.

“new sporting challenge”
Yet he’s already been at Juventus?

New challenge at juve 😂 he’s already done that and there is no challenge when you are handed the league every year. Madrid most likely.

Good riddance to him and hopefully we can replace him with a player who will actually deliver on his contract.
