Pogba’s father drops major hint on player’s next move

Paul Pogba: 'Set his heart on Man Utd return'

Paul Pogba’s father has claimed the Juventus midfielder “wants to play in a better league” after discussing transfer links with Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Pogba’s future has been under the microscope for the best part of 18 months, but the France star looks finally set to leave Turin after four successful seasons with the Bianconeri.

Both Manchester United and Real Madrid have reportedly made contact over the 23-year-old’s availability, with reports suggesting the player could be set to make a £80million move.

But amid speculation over the player’s future, his father admits the La Liga side are his preferred destination.

“Sign for Real Madrid? Interesting, yes,” Fassou Antoine Pogba told TV station Cuatro, in quotes reported by AS. “What we want is that he plays in a better league

“He will decide on which team he wishes to play and we are considering that now.”

Pogba, who left Manchester United in 2012 after making just three first-team appearances, is likely to be in the France side when they take on Iceland in Sunday’s Euro 2016 quarter-final.
