Paul Pogba will leave Manchester United for free at the end of the season.
That’s according to a recent report from Italian outlet Calciomercato, who claims to have conducted an exclusive interview with the French midfielder’s personal trainer.
‘Coach Meddy’, when asked about the 2018 World Cup winners’ future said: “Regarding Pogba, at the end of June he will no longer be a Manchester player.
“I think it is right for him to look elsewhere, perhaps Manchester also wants to renew themselves and the most sensible thing is to separate. The time will come to change and try new challenges, new emotions, new environments for both Pogba and Manchester, to try something different and maybe they will both be happy.
“Right now I think he’s enjoying himself, they have a good team, especially since Ronaldo decided to return. The problem is that the results don’t come.
“A top player doesn’t waste his time on minor competitions, he wants to be motivated to play for ambitious trophies.”
Pogba, 28, will be out of contract at Old Trafford in a few months’ time and despite much speculation surrounding whether or not he’ll sign a new deal, an agreement has not yet been reached.
It is now looking increasingly more likely that the former Juventus midfielder will depart for free, dealing the Red Devils a bitter commercial blow following their decision to resign him in 2016 in a deal worth a whopping £94.5m.
Speaking to the club’s official website about the midfielder’s contract situation recently, interim boss Ralf Rangnick said: “I had a long conversation with him for more than an hour after the training session, a very good conversation. He committed himself until the end of the season.
“He explained to me that he wants to be the best possible Paul Pogba that he can be.”
United are currently preparing to host Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur in a tense clash in the Premier League, whether or not Pogba will start remains to be seen, but there is every possibility that fans could see the France international in action, in what could be one of his final games for the club.
