According to the former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon, Paul Pogba to Real Madrid could already have been agreed.
Paul Pogba’s situation at Manchester United has been far from a smooth sailing with the Frenchman always in the news for one thing or another.
Whether, it’s the public fallout with Jose Mourinho or the open flirting with Zinedine Zidane and Real Madrid, the 26-year-old is never too far away from a controversy.
So, currently on holidays, maybe Pogba woke up one day and thought, Damn! it’s a slow news day in Manchester, why don’t I step up and cause some real f**k up once again. And so he did with the following comments:
“I am thinking of this: To have a new challenge somewhere else,
“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 this season and 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.”
While the recent reports say that Manchester United and Ed Woodward are unwilling to let go of the midfielder unless someone comes up with a 150 Million Euro offer, former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has some other views on this situation:
“In my experience when the player has said it publicly it is because he has a specific offer, with salary, bonuses and everything, which he likes,”
“Zidane has said publicly he wants the player and likes the player. He cannot say he is in touch with the player if he is.”
After so much talks and flirt between Zidane and Pogba, it would be surprising if the 26-year-old didn’t already have a contract on the table.
But the situation obviously boils down to one tiny detail; We wouldn’t (and shouldn’t!) let him go for anything less than the 150 Million Euro that we are demanding for his services, no matter the pressure from the player and his agent Mino Raiola.
If someone wants his services that desperately (and God hope someone does!), they gotta pay the price.
