ANDhe scream in pain from Paul pogba was heard throughout the stands of Clairefontaine’s training ground. Deschamps I placed a ball for the shot and the Frenchman broke just as he hit. The coach did not leave his astonishment. I knew that it was a hard blow for a player who has been looking for a long time to regain his best level and that He is experiencing a decisive period in his career.
For a player who at 28 is looking to sign the last great contract of his career, This injury, the third in two years, is a serious setback. His reliability was never in doubt because he is a technically gifted player, but above all a marvel of nature. After overcoming a real ordeal with an ankle injury that forced him to undergo surgery two seasons ago, last year and now this, a muscle injury has taken him away from the team again, and the truth is that the French cannot return to being the footballer admired and fearsome at the same time among the greats of Europe.
Lower the remainder of 2021
Upon his return, already scheduled for the month of January, Pogba will have to decide his fate because contract ends on June 30 and be free to negotiate with whoever you want. The injury may be the last reason Pogba thought his time at United is over. In addition to the injury, the Frenchman served a three-game sanction after a very tough inning to Keita, that joins the win of the Liverpool in the match (0-5). Solskjaer, who had always shown the club the need to renew the player’s contract, no longer seems so convinced. Former players and legends of Old trafford What Paul Scholes they have pointed you directly. “It has caused tremendous chaos in recent years. Everyone is aware of the talent he has and trusts him. All the technicians have trusted him and they have tried to let him be himself, but with all the current commotion, without having signed his renovation … He comes and does something like that, “commented an indignant Scholes.
Madrid, very attentive
As it is, Madrid is attentive to what happens with Pogba over the next few months. Not just from his injury, also of Mino Raiola’s movements with United and with other clubs such as Juventus or PSG. For the white club, Pogba’s option is still on the table. Yes Tchouameni It is one more option for the future, that of the United player is seen as present and as an immediate replacement for players who run out of time at the white club, especially Modric, that at 36 years of age he ends his contract but does not rule out continuing if the club is also willing.
For the rhythm and back-and-forth football that prevails in Europe And who also wants to improve Ancelotti at Madrid, Pogba fits into his plans. Although the player arrived free, it would not be a cheap operation because the salary would be much higher than that of a future footballer like the one in the middle of Mnaco. And it is that Pogba, on the one hand, earn 12 million net at United and his idea is to sign a last great contract to close his career that could also include a transfer bonus when he gets free. Madrid has always been one of his great aspirations. With Zidane on the bench, he already let himself be loved but the departure of the Frenchman does not change anything.
Good crumbs with Benzema
Pogba also has good references for Madrid Benzema himself, with whom he maintains a very good relationship in the national team. If Karim is always very close to Mbapp and would like to play with him in the white club, He also likes the idea of coinciding with the United player at the new Bernabu. The midfielder will have to sit down to negotiate a contract renewal with United at a disadvantage, without playing and without having reached 1,000 minutes this season. Turning the page is therefore an option for him and the fact that that Benzema is in Madrid and Mbapp may arrive is also a further incentive. The PSG does not rule it out either, but it has always been said that the footballer has a thorn in the football of his country, where he has hardly shown anything since he left with only 16 years old to United and has not returned.
McManaman sees him in white
An old acquaintance of the Real Madrid fans and a historical of La Premier What Mcmamanan It is clear that for the whites it is time to do this operation. “For Real Madrid it would be an easy move: He signs up for Pogba for free and does not take many risks. Perhaps Manchester United does not take advantage of all its strengths. You have to take into account that there is Modric at Real Madrid, who is 36 years old; Kroos, who is already in his thirties; and Casemiro, who will turn 30 in February. If I also had in front of Mbapp or Haaland, I could be a star there again“has commented the ex-madridista.
