PAUL POGBA’s personal trainer has revealed the midfielder ‘will no longer be a Manchester United player’ beyond this season.
The 28-year-old Frenchman is out of contract at the end of the season and seems destined to leave the club.
Pogba is already able to negotiate pre-contract terms with foreign clubs as Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid pursue his signing.
But amid a reversal of fortunes under Ralf Rangnick, there have been whispers that Pogba could stay at Old Trafford in recent weeks.
However, his manager ‘Coach Maddy’ quashed that conversation, admitting Pogba will leave at the end of his contract and even appeared to take a swipe at United for ‘wasting time on minor competitions’.
Maddy told Calciomercato: “Regarding Pogba, at the end of June he will no longer be a Manchester United player.
“I think he is right to look elsewhere, maybe Manchester also want to renew themselves and the most sensible thing is to separate.
“The time will come to change and try new challenges, new emotions, new environments for Pogba and Manchester, try something different and maybe they will both be happy.
“At the moment I think he’s having fun, they have a good team, especially since [Cristiano] Ronaldo decided to come back.
“The problem is that the results are not coming.
“A top player doesn’t waste his time on minor competitions, he wants to be motivated to play for ambitious trophies.”
Maddy then revealed that Juventus and PSG are potential destinations for Pogba in the summer window.
But the coach has ruled out a move to long-term suitors Real Madrid as Zinedine Zidane is no longer in charge.
Maddy continued, “Yeah, yeah. Paul can return to Juve, he has good relations with the Bianconeri.
“But he could also be at PSG. I think PSG need a midfielder like him and he could go and play in France.
“At Real Madrid, I would exclude him because there is no longer Zidane.. he would have left only in this case.
“Juve or PSG at the moment, but you never know what can happen, we’ll see.”
