Mathias Pogba believes his brother would be a success at Real Madrid.
Pogba’s older brother claims the Manchester United star would be great for Real Madrid and talks should begin between the two clubs.
The Red Devils midfielder has been linked with a big-money move to the Bernabeu throughout the summer as Zinedine Zidane is a huge fan of his.
An Old Trafford exit looked on the cards when, in June, Pogba admitted ‘it could be time for a new challenge’. But with less than a week left until the European transfer window closes, it is unlikely Real Madrid will match United’s asking price to sign the midfielder.
The Manchester-based side haven’t had the best of starts to the season with a win, a draw and a defeat in their first three encounters. Pogba and his teammate Marcus Rashford have been racially abused by a set of fans as well for missing their respective penalties and all’s not well at the club clearly.
Now Pogba’s brother has only fueled the fire by claiming that the midfielder could do with a move to Spain.
“I don’t know, I’m not inside the Bernabeu. In football you never know,” Mathias Pogba told AS.
“He is very well, as always. No one expects me to say something bad about United. He is a professional and his present is there. The future? It depends on the clubs, those who have to talk are them: that Manchester wants to sell and that Madrid wants to buy. This is business.
“Everyone knows that my brother could use Real Madrid and Zidane. Those who have to talk are Madrid and Manchester United. Zidane has always spoken well of my brother, it’s an honor,” he added.
Mathias Pogba plays for CD Manchego in Spain and has been very vocal about his desire for his sibling to join him there with Los Blancos. Hw has also signed up to star as a panellist on popular Spanish football talk show El Chiringuito. Speaking on the show earlier this month he claimed a transfer from Old Trafford to the Bernabeu was still possible.
