Transfer Ratings: Paul Pogba To Real Madrid

The long-term future of Manchester United star Paul Pogba would have been on the front burner in the British media if not for the indefinite suspension of football in the United kingdom and Europe in general. Despite the embargo on football as a result of Coronavirus, Pogba’s future at Old Trafford is still being talked about.

The future of the French international at Manchester United will be much clearer when the transfer window reopens this summer though it must be pointed out that the time for the next transfer window billed for summer could still change depending on what happens to the remainder of this season.

Paul Pogba has previously been very vocal about leaving Manchester United for the second time but didn’t get his wish of a transfer away from the club last summer. His inactivity for Manchester United this season has gone a long way to heighten rumours of a move away from Old Trafford.

The Frenchman has been plagued with an ankle injury for the majority of this season thereby forcing him to do surgery at the start of this year. Pogba played eight times this season before football was suspended last month.

Pogba was seriously touted as a possible signing for Spanish giants Real Madrid and former club Juventus shortly after he made it known to reporters that he would like to leave Manchester United while on an Adidas tour of Tokyo last summer. French giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona are known admirers of the player.

Real Madrid and Juventus were unable to do any deal for him because of his price tag plus the unwillingness of the Red Devils to part with their best players. Manchester United’s position on Pogba leaving the club has been weakened mainly due to the brilliance of fellow midfielder Bruno Fernandes since he joined Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon in January.

Real Madrid and Juventus have a better chance of signing him due to two factors including the weakened Manchester United stance on him leaving the club plus a lower price tag compared to last summer. Real Madris remain the favourites to sign Pogba due to the serious interest in him from manager Zinedine Zidane.

Transfer rating for Paul Pogba to Real Madrid is 7/10.

Dayot Upamecano

This might not be good news for English Premier League club Manchester United as they have been told that they are not alone in the race for Dayot Upamecano and it is made clear that there are yet to be a concrete offer for his signature.

The player himself made this known when he admitted he has been in great demand but noted that he does not know what the future holds for him as he has just signed a new contract with his club because he wants to be with his teammates.

The RB Leipzig was also on Arsenal radar but with the capture of Gabriel Magalhaes, the Red Devils will now enjoy a free run for his signature in   January.

It is understood that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a big fan of the 21-year-old as he was attracted by his impressive performances on RB Leipzig’s run to the Champions League semi-finals.

However, reports claim that the Red Devils board is not too convinced about the readiness of Dayot Upamecano for a first-team football in the English Premier League and that has to be sorted out before an official bid is submitted to his club in January.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo might have parted ways with his former club, Manchester United but that does not mean he has not been having one influence or the other on the club.

This was made known by former defender Patrice Evra who claims that the Portuguese star played a major role in bringing Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United in the last winter transfer window.

He revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo was the one who gave the go-ahead to the club to move in for Bruno Fernandes as they did not know anything about the player before his capture.

Patrice Evra stated that Bruno Fernandes is now making a massive impact at the club by ensuring more wins and helping to bring out the best in Paul Pogba.

Bruno Fernandes has even boasted that the best is yet to be seen of him as he has been training very hard to help his team the more in the coming season.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo remains a living legend of Manchester United as he made a very big impact at the Old Trafford, including winning of the Champions League, the Premier League as well as winning the World Best Footballer award as a Red Devils player under manager Alex Ferguson.

Benoit Badiashile

The search by English Premier League club Manchester United continues for players that will turn their season around but they are only close to sealing one.

Manchester United are keen on a new defender that will partner Harry Maguire and have been linked with French Ligue 1 outfit Monaco star, Benoit Badiashile with their first bid rejected.

According to AS, the Red Devils had submitted an offer of £25 million for the signature of Benoit Badiashile but Monaco rejected it because it was £2 million short of his release clause.

This means the Red Devils can complete the signing of the central defender if they return with an additional £2 million bid as that is the only way they can land him in January transfer window.

The Spanish outlet also adds that Monaco are not interested in parting ways with Benoit Badiashile because they still have a big need of him but they will be left with no choice if his release clause is tabled.

One area manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will focus on in January is the defensive department after seeing his team concede 36 goals   last season.

However, we expect to see more signings from the Red Devils in January.
