Manchester United’s Paul Pogba has raised eyebrows of the Red Devils’ coaching staff and supporters. Speaking to the media ahead of France’s UEFA Nations League match against Germany, Pogba speculated that he may not be at Old Trafford in the “next few months”.
Manchester United’s Paul Pogba throws fuel on the fire of discontent rumours
Pogba was heavily linked with a move away from Manchester United during the summer. After falling out with manager Jose Mourinho last season, Pogba was courted briefly by Juventus and Barcelona during the summer transfer window. Ultimately, the Frenchman remained at Manchester United and even stated he “couldn’t be happier” at Old Trafford recently.
However, his latest remarks have left some scratching their heads.
“My future is currently in Manchester,” Pogba told Sky Germany. “I still have a contract, I am playing there at the moment, but who knows what will happen in the next few months.”
The comments have been interpreted by many as Pogba isn’t sure if he wants to remain at Old Trafford. His staying or going could hinge on whether Mourinho leaves at some point this season.
Despite falling out of favour in the second half of last term, Pogba was made Red Devils’ captain for the club’s two opening fixtures of the Premier League campaign.
Recent reports have claimed Pogba will remain at Old Trafford for the remainder of the season. Pogba is currently in the third year of a five year deal signed back in 2016.
Pogba went on to say during his interview that he remains a professional on the pitch regardless of Manchester United’s results.
“One thing I can assure you: I will always give 100 per cent, no matter which coach I always give everything,” Pogba said. “I cannot say more.”
Is Paul Pogba giving his all for the club or are Mourinho’s tactics hurting the Frenchman? Have your say.
