Manchester United star Paul Pogba has posted a cryptic response to his brother’s claim that he is desperate to join Real Madrid.
Mathias Pogba, who plays for Spanish fourth division side CD Manchego, gave an interview to El Chiringuito on Thursday in which he claimed his brother was waiting on a move to the Bernabeu.
‘My brother is missing [at Real Madrid] and I think he [Zidane] needs another midfielder,’ said Mathias Pogba. ‘Of course Florentino [Perez] can get him, nothing is impossible in life.
‘I don’t think he’s worth 200 million, but now the football world is like that, Manchester are going to ask for a lot, but not 200. It’s a delicate situation but the player has his personal goals, if you have to leave, well, that’s it.’
Pogba stated his desire for a ‘new challenge’ in June but United value him at £150m and are to receive a bid anywhere near that region for the Frenchman.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has promised to build his side around the former Juventus man but Pogba appears to have reaffirmed his desire to move by posting a photo of his brother’s interview on his Instagram account.
Pogba tagged his brother in the post and chose a particularly suggestive screenshot of Mathias during his interview on Spanish television.
United have no intention of allowing Pogba to leave and doubt that Madrid have the cash to sign him this summer.
