The future of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is still a mystery. His contract will expire in June 2022 and until now it is not clear whether Pogba will extend it or not.
Quite a worrying condition. Because Pogba could have left United on a free transfer. What happened to Pogba began to attract the attention of a number of European giants such as Barcelona, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, competing for Pogba.
1. Barcelona benefits
Barcelona is a club that is believed to be leading enough to get Pogba’s services. Barcelona’s good relationship with Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, is the main reason.
Moreover, Raiola is quite loud in discussing with the MU management. Raiola’s relationship with Manchester United’s management is not good, it can make negotiations for Pogba to stay at Old Trafford difficult.
“If Pogba decides not to stay at Manchester United, it will be a great competition. Mino Raiola has a good relationship with Barcelona, especially Joan Laporta. They completed several transfers when Laporta was president of the club a few years ago. But with their financial situation at the moment, it will be a little difficult. But we will see,” said Italian transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, quoted by his Twitter account @FabrizioRomano.
2. Pogba and Juventus romance
It’s not just Barcelona that benefits, Juventus too. During this time, Raiola also often supplies players to Juventus. Several times, Raiola expressed his satisfaction with Juventus’ service to his players.
“Besides Barcelona, Juventus are also interested. Raiola said they have a close relationship. Pogba and Juventus also have a very strong relationship,” wrote Romano.
3. PSG and Real Madrid are monitoring Pogba
PSG and Madrid are the other two clubs monitoring Pogba’s development. The two also elbowed each other, in order to get Pogba.
Because, both Madrid and PSG need Pogba to be able to build the megastar project they are building. However, Madrid actually does more business with Raiola’s rival super agent, Jorge Mendes.
