Manchester United (MU) midfielder Paul Pogba has rejected the opportunity to move to Premier League giants Manchester City. The 29-year-old has reportedly informed the club of his desire to leave England at the end of the season.
As is well known, Paul Pogba is getting closer to the Old Trafford exit. The Frenchman will end his contract with Manchester United in June 2022.
The Red Devils actually had time to offer a new deal for Pogba. But the player is reluctant to extend his stay at Old Trafford.
The news of Pogba’s departure has benefited other clubs. The reason is, the French international player can be brought in for free at the end of the season.
According to Metro reports, Pogba has been the subject of interest from Juventus, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). However, Manchester City is claimed to be the club that has made the firmest offer so far.
No wonder The Citizens intend to bring Pogba to the Etihad. Manchester City tactician Pep Guardiola is known to be an admirer of Pogba. The midfield position in his squad will also be vacant because Fernandinho chose to leave at the end of the season.
Unfortunately, the interest of The Citizens is one-sided. Athletic’s David Ornstein claims Paul Pogba has turned down offers to move to the Etihad. The former Juventus player is said to be more interested in playing elsewhere next season.
