Pogba waiting on Zinedine Zidane move before deciding future

Before deciding on his future, Paul Pogba is said to be waiting to see what happens with PSG pursuing Zinedine Zidane.

The France international was announced to have left Manchester United earlier this month, ending his second stint at Old Trafford after six years.

Real Madrid were thought to be the favorites to catch Pogba on a free transfer, but the club have instead focused on Monaco’s Aurelien Chuamini.

Juventus have long been considered the favorites to re-sign Pogba after Real Madrid ditched their interest following the Frenchman’s first trophy-laden spell in Turin.

Paris Saint-Germain, the French Ligue 1 champions, is still hoping to lure the 29-year-old back home as part of a midfield revamp this summer.

Pogba has not completely ruled out a move to Paris Saint-Germain, according to RMC Sport, as the French club still wants to sign Zidane as their new manager.

PSG’s chosen replacement for Mauricio Pochettino is the three-time Champions League winner, who left Real Madrid in the summer of 2021.

Reports earlier this week said Zidane had accepted an offer to take over at the Parc des Princes, but sources close to the 49-year-old immediately debunked the allegations.

Pogba is rumored to have received an offer of a three-year contract from Juventus after scoring 34 goals and providing 40 assists in 178 appearances across all competitions during his first tenure with the club.

Prior to his £94.5 million return to Old Trafford in 2016, the World Cup winner won four Serie A titles and reached the Champions League final under Massimiliano Allegri.

Between 2016 and 2022, Pogba helped the Red Devils win the European League once and the European Football Association Cup once, but in his last season with the club, he scored only one goal and added nine assists in 27 games.
