Paul Pogba is likely to leave Manchester United this summer, with Real Madrid and Juventus both chasing the midfielder in Germany, according to Sky.
The 26-year-old French midfielder would prefer to join Zinedine Zidane in Spain.
United would like to keep Pogba at least until the end of the season as there are no replacement products on the market in January.
Real Madrid and Juventus are looking for Paul Pogba
A summer deal, however, is difficult for any club to conclude as United charges a £ 150m fee for the World Cup winner.
There is also a complex relationship between the club and Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola, who brought him back from Juve to Old Trafford in 2016.
The player, a United Youth graduate, also signed a five-year contract upon re-entry, which includes the option to extend it by another year until 2022.
Pogba said last summer that he was considering leaving the club for “a new challenge,” and Raiola also said, “everyone knows Paul’s willingness to continue” – but a transfer did not take place.
Any deal for the numbers that United expects to want is hampered by Pogba’s inadequate appearance. He is currently recovering from an ankle operation and will only be back after the winter break.
So far, the midfielder has only made eight appearances in all competitions this season – six at the beginning of the season and two more in December after a ten-week break due to an ankle injury.
