Paul Pogba’s brother Mattias Pogba has claimed that the French World Cup winner could still leave Manchester United for Real Madrid before the transfer window slams shut.
The 26-year-old midfielder has openly stated his desire to move and also refused to rule out a switch after United’s 4-0 thumping of Chelsea in their opening Premier League game.
Mattias Pogba, who himself joined Spanish fourth division side Manchego last month, has insisted that a move could still happen.
“Zidane is one of the greats and I think that if the club give him what he wants, he won’t have a problem, but if they don’t give it to him, he’s going to have a hard time because what he wants is not going to happen, because right now it’s a little late,” Mathias said in an interview with El Chiringuito.
“My brother is missing and I think he needs another midfielder. Of course Florentino [Perez] can get him, nothing is impossible in life.”
“I don’t think he’s worth 200 million, but now the football world is like that, Manchester are going to ask for a lot, but not 200.”
“It’s a delicate situation but the player has his personal goals, if you have to leave, well, that’s it. If you can’t stay and play where you are, you can stay and you’re done. I can’t assure you that he is going to stay at United.”
“We know he wanted to move, but he’s not to blame. He’s waiting. He works hard and we’ll see what happens. In football you never know. Until September 2 everything can happen.”
“My brother’s dream is to win the Champions League.”
Pogba is currently gearing up to start in Solskjaer’s lineup as United get ready to face Wolverhampton in the second game of the season.
