Man United trigger one-year extension clause on Pogba
French midfielder tied to the Reds until June 2022
Paul Pogba’s “dream” of playing for Real Madrid will be on hold for a while.
The 27-year-old midfielder is staying at Old Trafford until at least June 2022.
The club officially announced they have triggered his one-year extension clause.
Recently Pogba sparked widespread speculation he may soon be on his way out of Old Trafford.
At a Nations League media conference, the Frenchman was asked about the prospect of playing for Real Madrid.
He said “all football players would love to play for Real Madrid. It is a dream for me, why not one day?”
His option is a feature that’s built-in many United contracts that players sign for, with the club having control over the clauses.
Manager Ole Gunna Solskjaer recently addressed Pogba’s comments about playing for Real Madrid.
“Paul’s our player, he’s going to be here for another two years.”
“So, in the next couple of years, I’m sure we’ll get the best out of him.”
In 2016 Pogba returned to Man United from Juventus for a world record deal at that time. (JSL)
