Paul Pogba’s elder brother, Florentin, has come out to reveal that his brother will only leave Manchester United for Barcelona or Real Madrid – and definitely not Manchester City, the DailyStar reports.
The Frenchman’s future has been the subject of gossip in recent months following his unstable relationship with Jose Mourinho.
Pogba has been linked with a move to Spain in the past and in particular last summer, amid a World Cup triumph with France, his name was regularly attracting interest from the La Liga giants.
Pogba is now enjoying his football once again under Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but Pogba’s brother admits only Barca and Real Madrid could prise him away from Old Trafford.
The midfielder’s brother said this in an interview with Spanish sports newspaper AS after recently signing for second-tier Spanish side Elche.
“He isn't going to go to City, therefore he'll come to Spain. To Barcelona or Real Madrid”
Speaking of Paul and his like for Barcelona, he said: “It's true, We like tiki-taka.
“I always watch their matches when I can or go the Camp Nou.
“When my brother leaves Manchester United I can only see three teams as an improvement: Manchester City, Real Madrid or Barcelona.
“He isn't going to go to City, therefore he'll come to Spain. To Barcelona or Real Madrid.”
Speaking of Paul's recent upturn in form and happiness, Florentin said: “Mourinho's exit has been key. He wasn't happy and you could tell.
“Now with Solskjaer, everything has improved. He knows my brother from the reserves at Manchester United.”
