Paul Pogba is apparently doing everything he can to force his way out of Manchester United this summer, with the latest reports indicating the French midfielder has taken things to the next level trying to make the Red Devils get tired of him. The France international has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, and knowing that Zinedine Zidane and Real Madrid alongside his former club in Serie A, Juventus, are interested in him, he wants to leave as fast as he can.
Per reports, Pogba has apparently called new Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri in an attempt to force his move back to Turin, while his current manager in Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is also pushing for the midfielder to leave. Albeit Madrid looked like the favorite to sign the World Cup winner, recent reports place Juventus ahead of Los Blancos in the race for the 26-year-old.
Tuttosport even claimed that a ‘desperate’ Pogba called Sarri to encourage him to push to make the move. Besides, despite Manchester counting with Pogba as part of the team for their next season,The Daily Star believes that manager Solskjaer also wants Pogba to leave in order to get some cash to boost the team’s ranks ahead of next season.

It’s understood that United have a £100-million budget for the summer, but the Norwegian is eager to sell Pogba and striker Romelu Lukaku to lift the club’s spending power. After Pogba admitted that he was looking for new challenges, Juve have been trying to figure ways to buy the midfielder, even including Douglas Costa in a potential negotiation.
If that doesn’t go through, the Red Devils have another option in Paulo Dybala, who’s been drawing interest from the English side for the last couple of months and now they look ready to put their hands on him.
