Pogba open to joining European giants

World News

Manchester United star Paul Pogba has revealed that he is open to joining one of Europe's biggest clubs, and seemingly also had a dig at interim Red Devils boss Ralf Rangnick.

The Frenchman recently gave a rather explosive interview to Le Figaro, during which he spoke about a number of things, including his future.

Having arrived at Old Trafford from Juventus in 2016 as the most expensive signing in the English club's history club at a fee of €105 million (R1.7 billion), Pogba has largely failed to live up to expectations, which has resulted in criticism often being levelled at him.

With the 29-year-old's current deal set to expire in June and a contract renewal looks unlikely at this point, he has now admitted to being open to joining another big European club.

Asked about perhaps joining Paris Saint-Germain one day, the midfielder told Le Figaro: "Why not? It's always nice to play with your teammates in the national team and club."

The former Juve star also spoke of his dissatisfaction with his past few years in the Premier League.

"You have to be honest, the last five seasons have not satisfied me – really not at all," the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner added.

"This year it is dead, we won't win anything. Whether it is with Manchester United or at another club, I want to win trophies."

Pogba then seemingly accused his current manager Rangnick of playing him out of position at United.

"It's simple with France, I play and I play in my position – I know my role and I feel the confidence of the coach and the players," he continued.

"It's normal to feel a difference at Manchester United because it's hard to be consistent when you often have a change to your position, or the team system, or your partners.

"I get along very well with [France boss Didier Deschamps], he gave me a role that I know, but at Manchester United, do I really have a role?

"I ask the question but I don't have an answer."
