Paul Pogba transfer latest: Manchester United stars ‘openly joking’ about Real Madrid speculation
Manchester United stars are ‘openly joking’ about reports linking Paul Pogba with a summer transfer to Real Madrid.
The 26-year-old has reportedly already agreed personal terms with the LaLiga giants and has asked to leave Old Trafford.
Pogba’s Manchester United future has been thrown into doubt this season as the midfielder admitted a move to Real would be a ‘dream’.
United are sixth in the Premier League, with Sunday’s draw with Chelsea keeping them three points off a Champions League spot with two games to go.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have won just one of their past four league games with Pogba’s form dropping off throughout that period.
