Thanks to the outbreak of his agent, Mino Raiola, Paul Pogba seems to have sealed his apparent desire to leave Manchester United.
The French World Cup winner has to be careful, of course, as there don’t seem to be too many suitors for him.
Given the transfer fee the Red Devils are likely to demand, as well as Pogba’s salary expectations, technically only a handful of clubs could afford it.
Now it will be difficult for him to stay at Old Trafford, although Barcelona’s financial situation would surely prevent him from making an offer.
Mino Raiola: “However, I think the best solution for both Pogba and Man Utd is for it to happen in the next transfer window. If not, the Old Trafford club knows that it risks losing him in a free transfer, as it is not Paul’s intention to extend his contract. ? #MUFC

Zinedine Zidane would probably seize the opportunity to sign his compatriot, but Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez is clearly not a fan of the player after closing a deal in the summer according to AS, cited by Daily express.
Paris Saint-Germain could afford it, but arguably they don’t need it, which actually leaves only their old club Juventus.
Fortunately for Pogba, they have a bargaining chip for any deal, and according to the Daily mail, the Old Woman is willing to offer Paulo Dybala in a trade for the French.
Given the Argentine’s underperformance in the past 12 months, such a swap agreement could be tailored to all parties.
