Paul Pogba has reportedly ‘asked Manchester United to sell him to Real Madrid’ this summer and has already agreed terms on a contract with the Spanish giants.
The Frenchman appears certain to leave Old Trafford in the upcoming transfer window and has continued to flirt with a move away, with a host of European giants interested in his services, according to Daily Mail.
A return to former club Juventus has been speculated but links to the Bernabeu are constant and Pogba’s compatriot and Real manager Zinedine Zidane is said to be desperate to bring him to the Spanish capital.
It is even claimed the 26-year-old has already agreed terms on his contract with the Spanish giants and they will pay him £10.3million per year.
Pogba is said to want to sort his future out sooner rather than later in a bid to avoid it becoming ‘the soap opera of the summer’, as it was in 2016 when he left Juventus and returned to Manchester.
He remains adamant that United will not compete for major honours next season, a worrying blow for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his new regime at Old Trafford.
Along with Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, Zidane has made Pogba a key target for his summer overhaul but United are believed to be wanting a fee of around £130m before they even consider selling their prized asset.
