Paul Pogba has admitted he wants to leave Manchester United this summer after revealing he believes it’s time for ‘a new challenge’ after another disappointing season at Old Trafford.
Both Juventus and Madrid aren’t able to afford United’s asking price for Pogba and it’s believed both clubs would include players plus cash in any potential deal, with Gareth Bale potentially being used by Madrid, despite the Red Devils changing their stance on the Welshman.
Speaking in Tokyo and as reported by the Guardian, Pogba said: “Like you said, there is a lot of talking and a lot of thinking as well. For me, I have been for three years in Manchester and have been doing great; some good moments and some bad moments, like everybody. Like everywhere else.”
“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. I am thinking of this: to have a new challenge somewhere else,” the 26-year-old added.
Should Pogba depart, it will leave United needing to replace not only his midfield presence but Ander Herrera’s, Marouane Fellaini’s and arguably Nemanja Matić’s. All with the pre-season campaign beginning in July. Then there’s the futures of Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sánchez, Juan Mata and David De Gea to resolve all whilst the club have brought in one signing. The next few weeks are pivotal if Ole Gunnar Solskjær wishes to have any success this season, and failure to bring in adequate new additions would see a heavy backlash towards the club and particularly Ed Woodward, and rightly so.
