Paul Pogba will leave Manchester United when his contract expires in June, according to the midfielder’s personal trainer. The Frenchman, who will turn 29 next week, has not yet agreed on a new contract with the Red Devils and will be available for free at the end of the season.
It will be the second time Pogba has left United empty-handed, the player who joined Juventus in 2012 before returning four years later for a record £ 89.3million.
Coach Meddy, a Dubai-based fitness coach who openly mentions some of the best footballers among his clients, says Pogba is “still enjoying himself” at United, especially since Cristiano Ronaldo returned to England last year.
However, he says diversification can be beneficial to both the club and the player.
“As for Pogba, by the end of June, he will no longer be a Manchester player,” he told Calciomercato.com.
“I think it’s okay for him to look elsewhere. Maybe Manchester also wants to rejuvenate themselves, and the right thing to do is to split up.
“The time is coming for us to change and try new challenges, new emotions, new places for both Pogba and Manchester, to try different, maybe they will both be happy.
“At the moment I feel like he is enjoying himself, they have a good team especially as Ronaldo has decided to come back, the problem is the results are not coming.
“A top player doesn’t waste his time on small tournaments. He wants to be motivated to play for prestige trophies.”
United sit fifth in the Premier League after 28 games this season and will face Tottenham on Saturday in a crucial tournament in the top four.
With a 22-point gap over Manchester City leaders and out of both home cup competitions, the Champions League remains United’s only silver hopes this season.
They will face Atletico Madrid at home on Tuesday in the second leg of the last 16, a 1-1 draw in Spain.
