Paul Pogba’s chances of joining Real Madrid have been deemed as negligible.
The France international has been heavily linked with a ‘dream’ switch to the Santiago Bernabeu outfit since the tail-end of the 2018-19 campaign.
The player himself added to the speculation by publicly speaking out about his desire to depart from Old Trafford and seek a brand new challenge elsewhere.
There has been a feeling of imminence around his prospective transfer to Real Madrid, but the move might not happen at all this summer, according to BBC journalist David Ornstein.
Shedding light on Real’s original targets for this summer window, Ornstein revealed: “Early in this transfer window, Real Madrid had a list of key targets.
“At the top of that list was Eden Hazard, Kylian Mbappe, and Christian Eriksen. Paul Pogba was not towards the top at the time I was told about it.”
He then went on to rate the possibility of Pogba’s switch to the Spanish capital, as he added: “I would say that in this transfer window, Paul Pogba is going to stay at Manchester United. I’d rate his chances of leaving at one out of ten.”
Does this mean Pogba will stay put in Manchester after all? Or could a shock return to Juventus be on the cards?
