Reasons why Pogba should move to Real in the summer
2018 FIFA World Cup winner Paul Pogba has been a constant source of speculation as far his transfer rumors are concerned. Moreover, his agent Mino Raiola has also flirted with a move away from Old Trafford. Reports have claimed Pogba is determined to join Spanish club Real Madrid. Here we analyze the reasons why Pogba should move to Real.
Pogba wants Man United exit
There is no use keeping a player who has doubts regarding his stay at a club. Pogba wanted to make a move in the summer of 2019, however, things didn't go as planned. According to a report in 90min.com, Pogba is determined to secure a dream move to the Bernabeu. He wants to play under Zinedine Zidane. United should not keep someone who's unhappy.
United can cash in and use the transfer money
Pogba is entering the final year of his contract at Man United. Reports have suggested that his valuation has been set at £100m. If Real do meet the same, then it could be a wise move to let the Frenchman go. United will get their money and can invest the sum elsewhere. Aston Villa's Jack Grealish and Leicester City's James Maddison are rumored targets.
Real Madrid a sound option for someone like Pogba
Real Madrid's three-man mid-field have seen the likes of Luka Modric, Casemiro and Toni Kroos form an able partnership over the years. However, Modric is 34 and his time at Real is coming to an end. To replace someone of his stature is difficult. That's where Pogba comes in. He can fill in the void and strike a partnership with Kroos and Casemiro.
Pogba has been inconsistent at Man United
Pogba hasn't quite reached the heights one would have liked to see him at United. He had a fall-out with former manager Jose Mourinho in 2017-18 and managed just 37 games. Last season was his best at the club. He scored 16 goals in 47 games. In the 2019-20 season, Pogba's progress was marred by inconsistency and then a long-term absence with injury.
Pogba can thrive under Zidane
Pogba wants to vie for trophies and at Real he can achieve the same. United are still in a period of transition and things will take time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. This season saw United being inconsistent in the league. Pogba would relish to have a crack under Zidane and better his overall play. A fresh start could see him fulfill is potential.
