The Guardian: Paul Pogba wants to leave United, potential exit unlikely due to €100m asking price
- Juventus and Real Madrid remain interested in the midfielder.
- He would like to come back to Turin, according to his agent Mino Raiola.
- Pogba is convinced that his exit would be the best option for him and the Red Devils.
According to The Guardian's Fabrizio Romano, Paul Pogba wants to leave Man United at the end of the season but his potential exit from Old Trafford is likely to be blocked by the club's asking price of around €100m.
The Frenchman's agent Mino Raiola will try to convince the Red Devils to lower their demands as Pogba is convinced that his exit would be the best option for him and the club, as per the tier 1 source.
When asked about the midfielder's potential return to Turin earlier this week, Raiola said: “Pogba feels at home in Italy. Italy is like his second home or family, same for Ibrahimovic. That’s why Paul would like to come back to Juventus.
“But we’ll go to speak about that just after Euro 2020. Pogba wants to play at the best levels always ... but he can’t escape Manchester United now, in this moment where the club is not having a good period.”
The France international has made just eight appearances this season due to an ankle injury. He underwent surgery in January and could be available for next month's Manchester derby (Daily Mail).
The 26-year-old's contract at Old Trafford expires in 2022 and United have an option to extend it by 12 months.
