Media miscommunication for Pogba
Very few things are known about Paul Pogba's future at the moment. There is one very obvious problem: Solskjaer is counting on him and the Premier League is already in full swing. In addition, the French player has been demonstrating professionalism with an active performance.
Beyond that, the only other known facts are that Pogba has been quoted saying that he would be open to new destinations, along with the fact that Zinedine Zidane specifically asked Florentino Perez - Real Madrid's president - for the player. From there on, chaos.
The latest information is very confusing. Newspapers the Mirror and Daily Star dedicated their Tuesday cover to Pogba, with both linking him to and exit. One of them even titled the story "Ready to leave".
Paying 160 million would be the key with which Real Madrid would ensure the transfer of the coveted French player.
Shortly afterwards, the popular Spanish TV programme 'Jugones', from 'La Sexta', said Real Madrid had stopped all bids for Pogba. There wouldn't be, therefore, a final effort to bring him to the Spanish capital, not even as an answer to the likely signing of Neymar by rivals Barcelona.
The Real Madrid board are now reportedly focusing on a cheaper option for their midfield. That option? Ajax's Van de Beek, who has been consistently linked with the Spaniards since the beginning of the month.
