Mathias Pogba hopes his Man Utd star will join him in Spain

Mathias Pogba, currently playing for Spanish club CD Manchego, hopes that his brother will join him in La Liga from Man Utd, wearing the Real Madrid shirt.

Paul Pogba’s brother recently spoke to AS, answering a series of questions pertaining to the World Cup winner.

When asked about reuniting the three brothers, meaning Florentin Pogba and Paul Pogba get moved to Spain, he answered: “No doubt before our careers are over we’ll get together in the same country. Hopefully, it’ll be in Spain. It might be this season, but it doesn’t depend just on us. If Flo and Paul get the chance, they’ll come.”

Whether it was meant to be or not, Pogba’s wishes to join Real Madrid have not been kept secret. The Frenchman even admitted during his tour of Asia that he wanted a “new challenge”, away from Old Trafford.

Most of those who have worked with Pogba regard him as highly professional, dedicated and talented. His brother said “He should go where they offer him the best conditions. Our mother worked so we could make it as footballers and now we need to make her happy”.

Will Pogba leave, and when? And who will replace him?

With the mass amounts of criticism, insults and even racism directed towards Paul Pogba in Manchester, coupled with his lack of success for the club, there is no reason for him to stay other than to honour his contract. But this would mean that Pogba, a £150million player, would leave the club for free. Recent history suggests that whilst the owners and board of Man Utd are absolutely clueless, they wouldn’t pass up such a large amount of money.

Taking all of this into consideration, Paul Pogba will likely leave Man Utd in summer of 2020. But don’t expect that to be reinvested, though. When Cristiano Ronaldo was sold for £80million, Gabriel Obertan and Michael Owen were brought in as replacements. One of whom got injured, Owen and the other failed to make a mark on Man Utd, then failed at Newcastle, and currently finds himself at Erzurumspor in Turkey.

Without Pogba, Man Utd’s midfield has no chance. You could even say Man Utd as a whole has no chance at all.
