Pogba, 26, reportedly had a discussion with his United teammates after their humiliating 4-0 defeat to Everton and confided in them about his decision to leave.
While Pogba’s destination club isn’t quite clear yet, reports suggest that Pogba may shift to Real Madrid to play under Zinedine Zidane next season.
Pogba joined the Red Devils for a club record fee of £89.3 million in the summer transfer window of 2016 from Juventus. Over the last two seasons though, the club has only managed to win the Europa League and the League Cup under Jose Mourinho. Domestically, they finished sixth in the 2016-17 season and improved to be runners-up to Manchester City last time around.
The midfielder’s desire to fight for the Premier League and Europe’s top trophy, th UEFA Champions League, has forced him to reconsider his options.
According to L’Equipe, Pogba told his teammates that United’s inabilty to compete for top titles is forcing him to quit and that the club would not object to his move to Real Madrid.
