– Paul Pogba has disclosed his future at Man United remains uncertain
– The Frenchman was in decent form for Man United in their 4-0 bashing of Chelsea
– Pogba seems not to have not given up hope of leaving Old Trafford this summer
Paul Pogba was on top of his game during Manchester United’s 4-0 win over Chelsea but claims a question mark still hangs over his continued stay at Old Trafford.
The Frenchman set up the Red Devils’ third and fourth goals in victory over the Blues to see Man United’s to decent start on Sunday.
According to the Daily Mail report, Pogba is still thinking of a switch to Real Madrid before the transfer deadline in Spain on September 2, with his agent Mino Raiola admitting earlier this summer the Frenchman wants to quit.
“Obviously there have been things said, but only time will tell. This question mark remains,” said Pogba.
“However, I am here in Manchester. I enjoy playing with my team-mates and I always want to win every game. I always give it everything.
“I am always good whenever I play football. It is what I love — it’s my job. I give the maximum each time.”
Man United’s staff are surprised Pogba is still at Old Trafford after executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward showed no fear in keeping the club’s £89m record signing.
Woodward rejected Pogba’s switch to Barcelona 12 months ago and is determined to stop Madrid’s attempt to land him this summer.
Man United waved off a cheeky Real Madrid bid of £27.6m plus James Rodriguez last week which goes a long way to suggest the Spanish outfit do not have enough funds to seal the move for Pogba this summer.
Meanwhile, the report further revealed that Man United would accept offers in the neighbourhood of £170m before the Premier League transfer deadline last week, but they would not agree to sell him now they cannot find a replacement.
At the last count, Pogba raised concerns he was ready to force a move away from Old Trafford when he missed the flight to Cardiff for Man United’s last pre-season fixture against AC Milan, but the club later explained he was permitted to remain in Manchester for treatment on a back injury.

However, Pogba might have to wait until till the end of the season to try again, with just 12 months remaining on his contract by that time.
Interestingly, Man United have an option to extend Pogba’s contract with an additional 12 months, but they will not enjoy a bargaining power at that point.

According to Metro citing reports in Spain, the 27-year-old is set to quit Paris Saint-Germain before the end of the summer transfer window, with the French Ligue 1 champions now willing to allowing Brazilian international leave.
