Manchester United board angered by Paul Pogba comments


Recent comments made by Paul Pogba regarding a potential move from Manchester United this summer have angered the club.

Paul Pogba just can’t stay out of the headlines, can he?

The Manchester United midfielder has been spending time in Japan recently as part of a promotional event with Adidas.

Taking a break from his sponsorship duties, Pogba candidly revealed that he is considering a move away from Old Trafford – comments which have angered the board.

Speaking to reporters in Tokyo, the 26-year-old said: “After everything that happened this season, with my season being my best season as well, I think for me it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else.”

This has to be the first time Pogba has spoken so candidly about leaving United since rejoining the club from Juventus in 2016 for a then-record fee of £89million.

The France international has had a difficult time upon returning to the Premier League, although he has enjoyed some bright sparks throughout the last three seasons.

Despite perhaps not living up to his astronomical transfer fee, Pogba is nevertheless a highly-valued player at United, so his recent comments have alarmed the board.

The Daily Mail has reported that the United board “are distinctly unimpressed with [his comments], but as far as they’re concerned Pogba will be at the club next season.”

Pogba has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer, as Zinedine Zidane is thought to be an admirer of his fellow countryman, who helped France to their second ever World Cup win last year.

Although Pogba still has two years left on his contract at United, if the club want to make back the fee they paid Juventus, they will have to sell him before his contract expired or risk letting him go for free in the future.
