A report now suggests that Manchester United star Paul Pogba has been “offered” to Chelsea, Barcelona and Real Madrid, as the Red Devils look to sell their unsettled midfield superstar.
Jose Mourinho has not really been pleased with the French international in recent times and was considering letting Pogba go, with this story now confirming that a potential exit is on the cards.
The former Juventus star would know the fact that if he does join the Blues, he will not be getting any Champions League football for the upcoming campaign, though that would not be the case with the La Liga giants.
Also, the Manchester-based side would not prefer to sell to a direct rival, if they must cash in on their top midfield star, which might increase his chances of moving to Spain.
The midfielder moved back to Old Trafford in 2016 for a fee of £89m, though he has failed up to live up to expectations, it can be said, with a huge price tag on his name.
Due to this, the Portuguese boss feels that it is best to sell him and buy new players, who can fit in better with the money that they get out of the deal.
He was publicly criticized in the previous campaign by Mourinho, which made his relationship with the boss complicated and reports in Spain confirm that he will be sacrificed in the current transfer window.
Don Balon stated that Pogba has been offered to a number of clubs across the continent by United and it is only time before he might leave The Theatre of Dreams.
It is also believed that he would prefer to play under Ernesto Valverde at the Nou Camp, which might give Barca the upper hand in the race to sign him.
Though Pogba was poor at times last season, he was not the only guilty party in their poor performances. He is still a match-winner and should not be sold. With the arrival of Fred in midfield, he will get more freedom now to push forward and create chances and score goals, as he used to do for Juve. He should be given more time by Mourinho, as he can still leave his mark for United, though whether that happens or not now, remains to be seen.
