Paul Pogba has refused to rule out his departure from Manchester United amid interest from Barcelona over a possible move next summer
As reported by Daily Mirror, Paul Pogba has remained coy upon being quizzed on his Manchester United future, refusing to rule out a possible departure from Old Trafford in a future window. Barcelona are interested in signing the French midfielder, and are reportedly likely to make an offer for him next summer.
It is all starting to go pear shaped for Pogba at Manchester United. The player’s relationship with manager Jose Mourinho is believed to be frosty, although the two have reportedly reached some form of a “truce”.
Nevertheless, the 25-year-old faces an uncertain future at Old Trafford, which has piqued the interest of a few clubs, the most forthcoming of which has been for Barcelona. In fact, the Blaugrana even lodged a shock bid for him this past summer, which was swiftly rejected by Manchester United.
Now, the very subject of the transfer speculations – Pogba – has been quizzed on his future at Manchester United. But, the French international has refused to rule out a departure from the Premier League club, which should provide a huge boost to Barcelona.
“There was a lot of talk, but it was just like that, I’m under contract in Manchester [United]. My future is currently in Manchester. I still have a contract, I’m playing there at the moment, but who knows what will happen in the next few months.”
Pogba also shed light on his relationship with Mourinho while adding that he always gives his utmost to perform for Manchester United. But, the fact that he hasn’t categorically denied a possible departure should give Barcelona the required impetus to pursue a move, when they renew their interest in him next summer.
In the meantime, the Red Devils look like they will be on their toes for the season to come. But, Pogba’s comments in addition to those made by Barcelona players only makes their job of keeping hold of the player that much harder.
For now though, Pogba remains part of the Manchester United fabric, and the club’s supporters will be hoping he can rediscover his best form, considering he has been one of their most important players in the last couple of seasons.
