Paul Pogba will certainly move to Real Madrid or Barcelona but not Manchester City when he leaves Manchester United, according to his brother Florentin
The World Cup winner was linked with a possible move to either Real Madrid or Barcelona during the final few difficult months of Jose Mourinho’s time in charge at Old Trafford, during which Pogba found himself reduced to largely a substitute role.
Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over as an interim manager in December, Pogba has been restored to the starting line-up and has repaid his new boss with some superb performances in a seven-match winning streak.
But Florentin, who is set to sign for second-tier side Elche in the coming days, thinks his brother will also move to Spain in future – but only if Barca or Madrid come calling.
In an interview with Spanish publication AS, Florentin said:
“When my brother leaves Manchester United, there are only three clubs he can go to to improve: (Manchester) City, Real Madrid or Barca. He’s not going to go to City, so he’ll come to Spain: to Barca or Madrid.
“When he was at Juventus, he could have gone to Barcelona, but he was determined to return to Manchester United, where it hadn’t worked out for him first time round.”
