Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was also keen on forming a partnership between Fernandes and Pogba. But Pogba has been out even before the arrival of the Portuguese. Hence, they were not able to work out the duo’s play. But the lockdown period has given him ample time to recover. Hence, we may see them make a touch or two together.

But the Frenchman did not give a proper idea about his future. Hence, there was uncertainty regarding his future. Leading to Ole’s search for better options in the market. Though MEN Sports claim United are cool with Pogba’s stance. They have been eyeing some midfielders on the market. Their first priority target Jack Grealish is also a midfielder who they wish to be a partner for Bruno.

There has been multiple interests for the Frenchman.

Though there are many clubs showing interest in the Frenchman. Real Madrid and Juventus have been the title competitors. Both the clubs have been longtime admirers of Pogba. And have been keeping close tabs since his hinting on an exit.

Juventus were thought to be the most likely destination for him. Pogba was at top form at Juventus before he made a return to United. Zinedine Zidane has also been an admirer of his. Hence, they have been keen on making a move for the midfielder.

Pogba’s future is also so far uncertain. But he will make his first appearance of this season soon. If he chooses to stay United will be more than happy to extend his contract. Even if the clubs are not ready to extend a deal due to his massive price tag. United have the option to extend one more year to his contract, as per a clause in his agreement.
