Paul Pogba’s immense potential is undeniable, and he is nearing the end of his contract negotiations with Manchester United. However, he may have suffered a setback after sustaining a thigh injury during a training practice with the France national team. This is the midfielder’s third injury in two years, and it comes at an inopportune moment as he seeks a new contract.
The Manchester United midfielder is set to return to action in January, by which time he will have made some choices, since his contract with the Premier League club expires in June of next year. If he does not sign a new contract at Old Trafford before the summer, he will be a free agent, and this injury may be the last straw in convincing him that his time in Manchester is done.
He was also facing a three-match suspension after getting sent off in United’s 5-0 Premier League loss at home to Liverpool, prompting United star Paul Scholes to express his displeasure with the Frenchman.
“It’s caused a lot of mayhem in recent years,” Scholes added.
“Everyone recognizes his skill, all of his coaches believe in him, and everyone has enabled him to develop into the player he is today.”
“Because he didn’t sign a new deal, he was on the verge of holding the club hostage, which he now has.”
Real Madrid is on the verge of making a move.
Real Madrid, who have been interested in Pobga for some time, will be keeping an eye on his position.
Los Blancos will be monitoring what he and his agent Mino Raiola do in the coming months since he is considered as a ready substitute for some of the squad’s more senior members.
Pogba has also been linked with a return to Paris Saint-Germain and his former club Juventus.
