Pogba: Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid the ‘most likely destinations’

A sensational switch across Manchester for Paul Pogba has been ruled out, with the midfielder tipped to head to mainland Europe this summer.

Reports emerged on Friday that City were considering signing Pogba as a free agent when he leaves United next month.

However, according to The Athletic, the 29-year-old has opted against joining City and favours a package offered by another club.

Pogba’s representatives have reportedly informed City that the France international will continue his career with a different club.

Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are his most likely destinations, although a final decision is yet to be made.

PSG sporting director Leonardo has already Pogba regarding a move to the Ligue 1 club, and it would be no surprise to see them win the race to secure his services.

Pogba’s future was the subject of plenty of debate on Sky Sports yesterday, with Jamie Carragher particularly vocal about the links with City.

The former Liverpool defender insisted that Pogba ‘doesn’t work hard enough’ to fit in City manager Pep Guardiola’s style of play.

“I wouldn’t go anywhere near him,” Carragher said. “You win the league every year, you get 95 to 100 points every year, but Paul Pogba doesn’t work hard enough or as much as these other City players.

“Pep might be able to get it out of him, and there’s no doubt he’s got ability, but when you see the other creative players in the City squad – Phil Foden, Bernardo Silva – these are brilliant players who don’t stop running and don’t stop working from minute one to minute 90.

“That’s what makes Man City what they are. They’re a great team – a brilliant manager with great individuals.

“I’m not doubting his quality, but he doesn’t work hard enough. If anyone says he gives 100 percent in every game, that’s a lie.”
