Paul Pogba: ‘United? we’ll see’

August 1, 2016 - 9:10 am

Paul Pogba’s transfer to Manchester United could be completed this week with only a few minor details left to be resolved.

The ongoing transfer saga was thought to have been finalised over a week ago but reports from Sky Sports UK suggest there are still elements of the deal that require negotiation.

The French midfielder is currently on holiday in Las Vegas and been decidedly non-committal on his future.

When quizzed by Sky about a possible return to Old Trafford, Pogba responded “We’ll see.”

Sky also suggest that their ‘sources’ have confirmed that the deal is ‘virtually agreed in principle’ between Juventus and United and personal terms between Pogba and The Red’s are close to being confirmed.

According to Sky, the main issue between the two clubs remains the payment of agent Mino Raiola’s fee which is reportedly in the region of £25m.

Pogba and French teammate Patrice Evra are scheduled to report to Juve’s Vinovo pre-season training camp on 7th August.

    Lot of you seem to be quite hostile towards Paul. Why is that? He is still our player, whatever the media says. Did he says something new? He had that universal studio joke, and the “don’t believe everything you read” thing, and now he says “we’ll see”.

    I don’t think he crossed a line.

      After his antics and refusal to rule out a move away by stating publically he is going to remain at Juventus (note: not that he ‘wants’ to stay, but that he is…), it’s perhaps best if the deal is successful and he does not come back.

      He could have nipped all this in the bud weeks ago – he has made a conscious choice not to.

      We know Utd are chasing him, Jose has said so, Ibra has said so. What we don’t know is if he wants to go. Unless Pogba’s antics in the USA is some great skit to amuse himself, then his refusal to speak and kill this story dead perhaps speaks louder about his intentions than any words.

      I will never deny Pogbas incredible potential. Imo i see more potential in him than Neymar. I also love his fun spirit and im sure hes a joy to have in the lockerroom, but there comes a time when you have to put on a serious face, especially when your teammates are already looking to prove theirselves in the grand stage.

      In my eyes, Pogba was never our best player nor was he was ever that important to our team. Hes still developing as a player. But despite that, he was still given our legendary 10 shirt. That is a HUGE gesture and now hes just playing games. I dont get was hes trying to do with all these cryptic messages. Are you staying or going?

      Although he hasnt given an straight forward answer, im convinced hes leaving. And what irritates me is hes leaving for man u, the team that let him go. Thats total disrespect in my eyes. Hes leaving a team that built him for the team that had little to no faith im him… For money. There is no other reason besides money that he d leave Juve for Man U. We bhave a greater story, history, and project going on.

      With that said, if he isnt leaving, the media did a great job. But at this point, i would be for Pogbas transfer. I dont see him as world class and he can bring a lot to the table, but he wont make a team better.

    I am so sick and tired of Pogba “reports” Get it over with already! I’m so done with the “official” reports, cryptic messages and hints from third parties!

    If he stays, great, if he doesnt, then fine, we’ll get someone else. But for fuck sake, decide already!

    If he goes, I hope Dybala takes the #10. 21 for Pjanic seems most logical

    Personally I don’t mind him leaving because living this whole Saga summer after summer is just too much. He’s playing games with us to increase his market value. When we just gave one of our youngest players the number 10 although the squad possess lots of leaders and experienced professionals, we expect him to honor that shirt for a bit longer than 11 months.
    The only problem with him leaving is that he leaves us thin at midfield with marchisio injured and khedira made of glass. And because he dragged this whole issue and left us will little time and options to seek in the market.
