Paul Pogba’s potential seismic return to Manchester United has become the most blockbuster rumour in the proverbial silly season, with the punters in the Transfer Tavern dreaming with wide-eyed wonderment over a switch that could break all manner of records.
While thoughts of seeing him ply his trade back in the Premier League are not solely reserved for merely Red Devils, with football fans up and down the country intrigued by the potential move, everyone could sadly be disappointed.
That’s because, according to Guillem Balague, the Frenchman actually favours a move to Real Madrid.
Los Blancos are also said to be in the mix for the Juventus megastar, though they reportedly fear being priced out of a move.
Initial talks are believed to have been opened with the Old Lady and the Les Blues engine room operator is understood to prefer moving to the Spanish capital.
Still, he could make a seismic return to the Theatre of Dreams should the Champions League winners fail to cough up the cash.
Would Pogba secure the league title for Man United?
