When Manchester United lost 2-0 to Watford to mark a bleak start to the Christmas period of fixtures, there was little for their fans to salvage from the encounter.
In fact, many felt that the only positive from the whole game was Paul Pogba’s cameo return from injury. This was a sentiment that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer echoed as well.
At the same time, the Frenchman’s return was still marked by the transfer uncertainties that surround his future. The period of absence was one where much speculation was done by fans as to whether or not the World Cup Winner deserves to be a United player. However, with just about thirty minutes spent on the pitch, the bigger question may now be whether Pogba is too good for the Theatre of Dreams.
It certainly appears that Tuttosport are tapping into this sentiment as they claim that Pogba is unhappy at his current club and is dreaming of a move elsewhere.
While Real Madrid was the most linked destination during the summer, this report now brings Pogba’s former employers Juventus back into the fray.
Specifically, the claim holds that Pogba could be sold to the Italian giants for a relatively paltry €60 million in addition to Emre Can joining the Mancunian giants as part of the deal.
This seems unlikely given United’s strong stance that the Frenchman wasn’t for sale and is rendered further confusing by the fact that Los Blancos were unable to pursue the deal precisely due to the large pricetag on the midfielder. In comparison, this new deal is certainly too financially light to be accurate.
Further still, the latest emotions from across the camp does appear to indicate that Pogba is now willing to remain with the Red Devils and aid them in the revamp.
However, it need not be stressed that a player of his caliber may not stick around for too long for a sub-par team.
