Real Madrid have allegedly decided to end their interest in Manchester United star Paul Pogba.
The French midfielder is about to enter the final six months of his contract with the 20-time English champions and can sign a pre-contract agreement with sides elsewhere from January.
Transfers to Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus have been mooted, but Los Blancos is always viewed to have been the most likely destination for the player in 2022.
However, Foot Mercato states that the Galacticos are no longer in the running for the ex-Bianconeri ace’s services amid fears that Paul’s signing would halt the development of Federico Valverde and Eduardo Camavinga.
Pogba’s young compatriot is already being tipped to depart the Santiago Bernabeu outfit amid his struggles for regular minutes under Carlo Ancelotti, with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool rumoured to be plotting a move.
He has seven assists to his name from 13 matches this season, and manager Ralf Rangnick recently offered a positive injury update on the player.
In other news, Newcastle United won’t pursue a move for Manchester United star Anthony Martial, according to a recent report.
The entourage has claimed that his client is interested in leaving the Red Devils in January as the player continues to struggle for opportunities in the starting XI but Football Insider claims that he is not a priority for the Magpies.
