Manchester United increasingly open to allowing star a transfer to Real Madrid after surprise U-turn

Posted by

Manchester United are reportedly increasingly open to allowing Paul Pogba to seal a transfer away from Old Trafford.

This could mean a move to Real Madrid, according to Don Balon, as it sounds like Pogba is now not looking set to sign a new contract with his current club.

The France international’s current deal has just a year to run, and Don Balon claim Man Utd want to cash in on him now rather than losing him on a free transfer next summer.

This is something of a surprise given that Sky Sports recently suggested United now looked in an improved position with regards to tying Pogba down to a new deal.

The 27-year-old has been a key performer for the Red Devils and losing him could be a real blow, even if many of the club’s fans have not always warmed to him.

United would of course do well not to lose Pogba on a free, but surely the club must do all they can to get him to commit to a new contract.

Madrid could land a world class talent otherwise, which may leave MUFC with plenty to regret in years to come.
