Paul Pogba Opens To EPL Offers If He Decides To Exit Manchester United This Summer

Paul Pogba is willing to wait until the end of the season to make a decision about his future and is open to all possibilities, including offers from Premier League clubs.

The Manchester United midfielder, who is out of contract in four months, wants to put negotiations about a new contract on hold in order to focus on his recovery from a groin injury and a great finish to the season.

While staying at United isn’t completely out of the question, Pogba is anticipated to receive offers from European clubs as one of the game’s most high-profile free agents, six years after his £89.3 million deal smashed the English transfer record.

Pogba is expected to weigh his options carefully over the coming months, giving Premier League clubs a chance to evaluate the France midfielder. Pogba has also been linked with a return to his hometown club, Paris Saint-Germain, or a return to Juventus, where he spent four years.

Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, revealed in 2018 that he was approached by Pogba’s agency during a period when the midfielder was dropped by Jose Mourinho. The offer was not followed, according to Guardiola.

Only a few teams in Europe could pay a deal to sign Pogba on a Bosman, with his market worth as a free agent expected to be in the region of £200,000 per week.

Pogba returned to action in February after a three-month layoff, earning plaudits from interim United manager Ralf Rangnick for coming on for the final 17 minutes against Brighton on Tuesday and assisting in the win. He also assisted on Bruno Fernandes’ goal, which sealed the victory and moved United back into the top four.

“It was critical to maintain control and possession of the ball, which is why I brought on Paul,” Rangnick stated. “It was beneficial to rest him in the first half and have him available for the last 20 minutes of the game because he was out with a long-term injury.”

Pogba was warmly received by the crowd when he came on, and with only six Premier League games left at Old Trafford this season, United fans may only get a few more chances to see him in their colors after he spent his prime years at the club.
