Paul Pogba’s comment about leaving the Old Trafford for a new challenge hasn’t gone down well with the Manchester United board.
The Frenchman told the reporters in Tokyo that it’s high time he tried on a new challenge, amdist the constant links to Real Madrid and Juventus:
‘Like you said, there is a lot of talking and a lot of thinking as well.
‘For me I have been for three years in Manchester and have been doing great, some good moments and some bad moments, like everybody. Like everywhere else.
‘After everything that happened this season, with my season being my best season as well… I think for me it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else. I am thinking of this: to have a new challenge somewhere else.’
The World-cup winner has been the focus of constant speculations in the recent weeks with his agent Mino Raiola trying to force him out of Manchester United for his another big payday.
Real Madrid are obviously interested in his services, and so are Juventus, who would love to have him back at Turin.
However, neither of those clubs are ready to shell out the money that Ed Woodward is demanding for the 26-year-old.
This recent comments made by Paul Pogba has left the Manchester United board ‘distinctly unimpressed’ and it would be interesting to see what steps the clubs take after this development.
