Paul Pogba is still “desperate” to leave Manchester United and join Real Madrid this summer, according to reports in the Spanish media.
Spanish newspaper Marca is reporting that the French midfielder remains keen on a move away from Old Trafford despite the English transfer window being closed.
The fact that the Premier League transfer window is now shut, means that Manchester United would not be able to sign a replacement if he were to leave.
The same story says that although Pogba, 26, remains keen on leaving Old Trafford for the Bernabeu, he knows that it is unlikely that he will be able to seal the move.
According to the same article, Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola is planning a meeting with Manchester United in the coming days to let the club know that the midfielder wants to move to Real Madrid.
Pogba started the season brightly for Manchester United last weekend as he provided two assists in the Red Devils’ opening weekend win over Chelsea FC at Old Trafford.
He will be expecting to be involved when Manchester United return to Premier League action with a trip to Wolves on Monday night as they aim to make it two wins from two in the top flight.
