Di Marzio: Real Madrid enquired about Pogba but he promised himself to Man United

by Sam Peoples

Gianluca di Marzio has waded in to the latest Paul Pogba updates with another big bombshell.

This time, the Italian journalist says Real Madrid have re-entered the fray but were met with a firm answer about Pogba that he’d promised himself to Manchester United. Yes you did read that right – Di Marzio reporting that Pogba snubbed Real Madrid for United.

Everywhere you look tonight there are huge Pogba updates. First, here is one from Sky Italia’s Fabrizio Romano who says Pogba has accepted his United contract.


Then there is The Guardian who say United will have to pay Raiola’s percentage of the Pogba deal, estimated to be worth an unbelievable £18.4m to the agent himself. As well as that, Duncan Castles reports the deal could be official by the weekend.

Wednesday night was kicked into gear when L’Equipe said the Pogba to United move had been agreed by all partie. Further updates from separate sources don’t wholly contradict that and the entrance of Real Madrid’s name reeks of a Juventus leak to force United’s hand. All in all, everything is ticking along nicely – we’re just waiting in anticipation for an official announcement.
