Scholes on Paul Pogba’s departure: Real and Barca are complete mess!

Manchester United former midfielder Paul Scholes considers Pogba’s possible departure to Real or Barcelona foolishness, since they are a mess right now.

We have repeatedly discussed a possible transfer of Pogba from Manchester United, as the agent of the footballer Mino Raiola actively tried to sell him in the summer to PSG. But right now, Real Madrid and Catalan Barcelona are more realistic options for the Frenchman. Although Barca have financial difficulties, and Florentino Perez does not like doing business with Raiola, it is these two Spanish giants that are Pogba's priorities.

There is still a possibility that the midfielder will remain at Manchester United. At least that's what his family says, and the arrival of Ronaldo changes a lot for the midfielder in terms of the future prospects and goals of the team. Therefore, Paul Scholes, who spent his entire career for the Red Devils, wanted to put in his word to the decision,

“I don't understand why he would want to leave. Why leave England? Look at Real Madrid - there is no Spanish league. Real Madrid and Barcelona are a mess. PSG may be an option for him, but England is the best right now.

Take a look at the top four Premier League teams. All the best players, the best coaches are gathered there. Why would he leave? On the other hand, it depends on the club. If they want to keep him, then great. If they don’t, it’s worth saying goodbye,” Scholes said.

This season, Pogba has improved his game, made seven assists and even managed to win the Nations League with the France national team. He is 28 and, as for us, Manchester United should focus on the new contract for the player. Another thing is that he himself dreamed of playing for Real Madrid, which now have enough elderly midfielders.

So far, Manchester United do not instill stability with their game and the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is quite likely. If Zinedine Zidane is called in his place, this will be the best argument for Paul to stay at Manchester. But while he and the club have two and a half months to think and in the winter transfer window already, he will be able to agree on a contract with a new team.
