Could this be the reason for extending Paul Pogba’s contract?


English Premier League club Man United are reported to have set their sight on Real Madrid star Federico Valverde and will want to bring him to the Old Trafford as soon as possible.

Federico Valverde has a release clause of £640 million in his contract and it is claimed that the Red Devils want to use Paul Pogba as bait to land him.

It is feared that Federico Valverde’s interest is the reason why the Red Devils gave a new contract to the former Juventus midfielder so that his value can increase and he will be able to cover most part of the bill for the Real Madrid star.

It is no secret that manager Zinedine Zidane is keen to work with the French midfielder and he has also publicly expressed his love for the Spanish giants, insisting that he will love to be at Bernabeu someday.

The only reason why the Spanish La Liga giants will back off from Paul Pogba’s chase is for the contract that has just signed but should Man United make him available plus cash for Federico Valverde, there are suggestions that a deal could happen.

Meanwhile, Paul Pogba is not the only Man United player reported to be on the hit list of Real Madrid. Bruno Fernandes is also reported to be attracting interest from Los Blancos as well as their rivals, Barcelona.
