With the team already out of the next UEFA Champions League, it looks like the World Cup champion is determined to force a move out of Old Trafford, even if the club stays reluctant to engage in talks with another clubs about a potential sell.
The Frenchman, who’s thrived during his second spell at the club three seasons ago, will stay under contract until mid-2021, but it looks like he’s already told his agent Mino Raiola that he has no intention whatsoever to run out his deal and would like to get out of the club as soon as possible, as reported by ESPN FC.
The club, however, has constantly played down any potential summer move for the 26-year-old, claiming he’s a key part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans going forward, but with the team’s form taking a major dip as of late, Pogba wants no part of a rebuilding process.

Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane have been fond of his talents for quite some long time, and Zizou even reached out to Raiola with an ultimatum, claiming they’ll either sign Paul in the summer or won’t sign him at all. Now, the superstar has finally made his mind.
While Pogba had flourished under Solskjaer’s tutelage throughout the first couple of weeks, he’s also been heavily criticized lately and pointed as one of the guys to blame for the team’s recent struggles.
Los Blancos are bound to make an offer of around €120m for the controversial midfielder, who hasn’t been comfortable at Old Trafford since the Jose Mourinho days, and he’d be thrilled to play under Zidane’s tutelage, according to his recent statements.
