Frustrated Pogba looks set to ditch Manchester United for Paris Saint-Germain

Paul Pogba is no nearer to agreeing a new contract at Manchester United, and it appears increasingly likely that he is looking at his next stop.

Pogba has cut a frustrated figure in recent weeks as United have struggled for form.

The French international will not discount signing a new deal until the New Year – but he is now just two months away from being able to sign a contract with another club, given his contract expires in summer 2022.

The chance to land Pogba on a free transfer is too much for many to resist, and he has no shortage of suitors.

Real Madrid have never hidden the fact they wanted Pogba, and they had a three-pronged French plan – Eduardo Camavinga, Kylian Mbappe and Pogba.

Camavinga was snapped up in the summer, Mbappe is on course to arrive at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2022 and now a deal for Pogba is in the pipeline.

Planet Sport Bet make Real second favourites at 4/1 to seal the deal for Pogba. However, they are not the favourites.

Leading the chase, at least according to the bookies, are Paris Saint-Germain, who have a rich history of big Bosman free transfers in recent times.

Only this summer they tied up deals for Lionel Messi, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Gini Wijnaldum and they are 9/4 to claim Pogba’s signature. That is a 30% probability of him returning to his homeland for the first time since leaving Le Havre for United as a teenager.

His other former club, Juventus, are also very much in the mix, with head coach Max Allegri a huge fan of his former charge. They are rated 5/1 shots.

Planet Sport Bet spokesman Mike Grenham admitted the Pogba market is going to see plenty of action before his next club is confirmed.

“Paul Pogba has a huge 2022 ahead of him personally,” said Grenham. “He has his pick of clubs and as we stand it is Paris Saint-Germain who lead the race. However, the market could change quickly with Real Madrid and Juventus likely to make him big offers.”
