Paul Pogba attempting to 'force through January transfer to Real Madrid'

Paul Pogba is said to be intensifying his efforts to force through a January move from Man Utd to Real Madrid , according to reports in Spain.

The World Cup winner was linked with a move to the La Liga giants throughout the summer, but ultimately remained with the Red Devils in the Premier League .

Since then, the France international has struggled with an ankle injury that has sidelined him since a 1-1 draw at home to Arsenal at the end of September.

The former Juventus man has recently spent time in Miami in an effort to return to full fitness as quickly as possible, hanging out with rapper Pharrell Williams and NBA star Jimmy Butler in between gym sessions.

But it seems the trip may also have been to get Pogba fit for a move to Madrid in the winter transfer window if reports in Spain are to be believed.

Speaking on radio show Tiempo de Juego , journalist Paco Gonzalez claimed that the 26-year-old has already fully recovered from his ankle injury, but has asked not to play.

Sources close to Utd reportedly confirmed Gonzalez’ claims, while also detailing that boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be open to allowing Pogba to leave in January, having kept hold of the midfielder in the summer.

It is thought any deal taking the Frenchman to the Spanish capital would set Real back around £130m.

Claims of Pogba’s wantaway behaviour will have come as a blow to Utd, who have missed the 26-year-old’s undoubted talent in recent weeks.

And if the reports from Spain prove true, it could well be the case that Pogba may have played his last game for Solskjaer at Utd.
