The end may very well be near. After a series of underwhelming performances and that unsavoury exchange with the club’s supporters at Old Trafford, Paul Pogba’s career at Manchester United might just be over. For the second time.
Reports in recent weeks and months had suggested the Frenchman was perhaps angling for a move away, and now, after some comments from Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola, there appears to be no way back.
Speaking to The Times, Raiola confirmed that the France World Cup winner wants to leave the club this summer and that he was in the process of trying to arrange a move away for his client.
The report adds that Real Madrid are understood to be the 26-year-old’s preferred destination, although Juventus are also interested in securing his signature for next season.
After hearing the revelation, United fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the matter and there was certainly a sense that enough was enough when it came to Pogba’s future.
Red Devils supporters urged the club to get rid of him in order for the side to move forward, and simply wanted any interested teams to stump up the money they wanted.
Indeed, some fans pointed to the Frenchman’s “heart being elsewhere”, and said that it had reached a point of no return in respect to any chances of him potentially staying.
Check out some of the reaction of United fans below:
Seriously I don’t understand why Manchester United fans are so worried about the Pogba’s departure man does nothing special for the team and is easy to be replaced in that United team.

It’s not really hard Rino. You know the price. Just £150m and we shake hands. Whichever club even china

It was about time, it’s probably good for Man Utd to let Pogba leave, well…in a football point of view, his heart is elsewhere
