Paul Pogba opts out of AC Milan match, firm on leaving Old Trafford

Paul Pogba is leaving no stone unturned to force his move out of Manchester United. With transfer window closing in and deadline within 5 days for Premiere League clubs, Paul Pogba has refused to play against AC Milan in a friendly.

Paul Pogba expressed desire to leave United

The news comes days after Paul Pogba made his intentions clear that he wants to leave Old Trafford. The Manchester United midfielder had by far his best season last season and was fed up after all the complications he suffered at United.

“After this season and everything that happened this season, with my season being my best season as well… I think for me it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else,” Paul Pogba said at that time.

“I am thinking of this: to have a new challenge somewhere else.”

And now less than a week before options close, Paul Pogba is making a last minute effort. The Frenchman hasn’t travelled with the Red Devils to Cardiff. United are slated to play AC Milan in a preseason friendly on Saturday in Cardiff.

Solsjaer keeps putting in efforts to retain Pogba

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has many a times made it clear that he wants Paul Pogba in the side. Solksjaer, the United manager also offered him a £500k deal this season. But after all that efforts, it looks like the Frenchman’s mood is still the same.

Solksjaer addressed the media telling Paul Pogba is out with a back injury on Friday. He told the United website that the Frenchman is suffering with a back spasm he suffered last week.

“At the end of the session today, Paul Pogba got a back spasm, the same issue he had last week, when he missed the session in Norway.”

But contradictory reports immediately emerged. El Chiringuito journalist Jose Alvarez Haya reported that Pogba has intentionally opted out of the match in order to force a Real Madrid move.

“Pogba does NOT have any injuries. He has not traveled by choice because he is not happy with his situation and wants to go to the Real Madrid.”

And with transfer window for Premiere League closing in 5 days, it’s high time United and Pogba decide for themselves. It’s never a good idea to play half heartedly. And with Maguire’s transfer, United have already spent too much this season.
