Fabrizio Romano, a journalist with The Guardian for Sky Sport, made a big point in the Paul Pogba file on his Instagram account. In fact, according to the information he has collected, Paul Pogba should not have the opportunity to leave the club as a free agent in the future. Regardless of his contractual situation, the French would be sold before the Red Devils failed. If Real Madrid, Juventus or even PSG tried to recruit him it would be on Manchester United terms. A new arm wrestling would therefore be announced while the Red Devils would count down another card. The will of the Mancunian leaders would always be to open talks with the Pogba clan in order to find a common basis for a contract extension. Negotiations have not actually started yet, but although this issue is likely to be very sensitive for Manchester United, the club will try everything for everything, according to Fabrizio Romano.
