Guillem Balague, a football expert from Spain, is predicting that Paul Pogba is not going to leave Manchester United and join Real Madrid. He is sure that United will bring out a new contract and sign a deal with him.
Pogba has made appearances in only five games this season due to his ankle injury. He has not particularly stated that he wants to leave United but he has kept his options open. The football staff and club members of Red Devils are aware of the potential that Pogba possesses. Even though he is a target for Real Madrid, there is going to be a huge turnover, which makes him not their first priority.
Manchester United favourite Dimitar Berbatov believes the Red Devils are reaping rewards after keeping faith in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their head coach. The Red Devils had a disappointing end to the previous campaign as a five-match winless run, saw them miss out on the Champions League spots.

When the transfer window opened at the start of January, there were a number of names being linked to Manchester United – mainly young, hungry players who had yet to prove themselves at the very highest level – which is probably as good as Man United could hope for. The biggest question seemed to be whether they would be able to tempt any of these bright young things across to Old Trafford, but there was one player who they knew would definitely be on the move, with his club having missed out on Champion’s League football, and a big money move well and truly on the cards – Erling Haaland.
Haalannd had the chance to join Juventus like De Ligt did during the summer, go to Manchester United (in dire need of a striker that knows how to score goals) or head to new pastures elsewhere – and the Norway international ended up at Borussia Dortmund, which many Norwegian commentators believe was the best choice to make.
