Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has told teammates he wants to leave the Old Trafford-based side this summer and the club will not act as a barrier.
The 26-year-old rejoined United in the summer of 2016 after four years at Juventus in a club record £89.3million deal but has struggled to consistently showcase his best form.
According to reports, Pogba had told his close relatives and teammates regarding his future at Man United. Pogba's contract with Man United will expire in 2021.
Now the club is planning the sale of the 26-year-old midfielder to Real Madrid as the Spanish club is openly interested in his services.
Paul Pogba is Real Madrid's main target on this summer's exchange. Zinedine Zidane himself asked for the management of Los Blancos to bring Pogba to the Santiago Bernabeu.
In fact, in a press conference, Zizou, praised Pogba as a complete midfielder for having the ability to attack and defend as well.
On the other hand, Pogba also said that playing for Real Madrid is the dream of all footballers. He said this during a question and answer session while undergoing an international agenda with the French National Team last month.
Pogba is reported to have not enjoyed playing time with the Red Devils. Man United's elimination in the hands of Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals and a 4-0 defeat of Everton is rumoured as the main cause for this departure.
Moreover, Man United are threatened not to qualify for the Champions League next season because they are still scattered in sixth position in the Premier League standings.
