Paul Pogba’s brother provides update on Man Utd star’s future

Paul Pogba’s brother Mathias Pogba has stated that the Manchester United midfielder is yet to make any decision on his future.

Pogba has less than 12 months left on his Man Utd contract, and he has so far kept the club at arms-length in terms of talking about an extension.

We revealed earlier in the summer that Pogba would be indeed be taking his time with his options, and assessing them before making a decision.

Matthias, one of Pogba’s older brothers, has confirmed that no decision has been made – despite reports claiming the arrival of Cristian Ronaldo was pushing him towards agreeing a new deal with United.

“Paul has not decided yet whether to stay or not next summer,” he told El Chiringuito.

“It’s his decision – he’s feeling very good at Manchester United now, this season…then let’s see. Let’s see when will be time to decide.”

As it stands, sources have confirmed that Pogba has four possible options he is to consider: Manchester United, Paris Saint Germain, Juventus and Real Madrid.

United are keen to open talks, although we understand it is not straightforward, as some members of the club’s hierarchy are not convinced he deserves a huge pay rise – given his form with the club has been far from consistent.

Pogba currently earns around £300,000-a-week but it believed that his representatives, led by super agent Mino Raiola, want a 50% increase taking him to £450,000-a-week at least.

Former club Juventus, who he left to re-join United in 2016, are again keen to take him back to Turin, while big spending PSG have also held talks with Raiola and made it clear they would like to take him back to his hometown of Paris and as they have proved this summer, handing out huge wage packets to free agents is becoming their area of expertise.

The fourth team keen on Pogba are Real Madrid, who have long had a plan to land the French star. Several years ago, former Real coach Zinedine Zidane and president Florentino Perez hatched a transfer plan to sign three French players – N’Golo Kante (who they later changed to Eduardo Camavinga) Kylian Mbappe and Pogba.

They have already landed Camavinga this summer and they have both Pogba and Mbappe in their sights, both of whom could move to Madrid for nothing next summer.
