The French international midfielder, Paul Pogba appeared to have wanted a transfer over the summer but he confirms that he is happy playing for Manchester United.
Paul Pogba said that he is one player who is committed and determined to play for Manchester United. This happened after news broke out that the sensational midfielder wants to exit Old Trafford for Real Madrid.
The 26-year-old was the United’s top scorer last season across all the competition. Scoring 16 goals in the what was a tough season for Manchester United was a great show of competency in midfield.
Both Juventus and Real Madrid were the most identified clubs which had an eye on the French midfielder. However, the deal did not go well and Paul Pogba returned to pre-season training as usual.
The chances of Pogba’s transfer seem to be very minimal as the transfer window closed last week. More so, the United will not be able to find a replacement at this time of the season.
After the Red Devils’ win yesterday, Paul Pogba decided to clear the air. He said, “One always remains on this point of questioning. I am in Manchester. I’m having fun with my team-mates, I always want to win the matches.”.
It is with no doubt that yesterday’s game made Pogba make up his mind. Surely, he will not be exiting the Old Trafford any time soon.
Pogba’s position in the United’s squad
The attacking midfielder would not have wanted to quit Old Trafford because of lacking position. Most of the times Pogba is on the bench is during injury. It is rare for him to be absent in the starting 11.
Sir Alex always revealed in his book that selling Paul Pogba to Juventus was one of the biggest mistakes he made in his career. To correct this mistake, Pogba was signed back into United squad after Sir Alex retired. Could it have been a big mistake for Solksjaer also?
It is true that Pogba dominates the United Midfield and no one could have allowed him to leave. His position is always secured unless United finds other players such as Paul Scholes whose replacement has never been found.
What next for Pogba?
There are no options for transfer now the summer window has already closed. Paul Pogba should focus on giving many assists to Martial and Rashford as he did yesterday.
