Manchester United star Paul Pogba has reportedly told Manchester City that he would prefer a move to another club.
Pogba’s deal runs out at the end of this season and it was reported that the French midfielder is a target of Manchester City.
A report by The Athletic says Pogba is not going to move to City because there is an offer on the table from a different club which he prefers.
According to the report, Pogba’s representatives have informed City of this decision, although it is not being considered as their final say.
Pogba, 29, joined United from Juventus for his second spell in 2016. He is attracting attention from Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Recall that his fellow country man Patrice Evra had recently criticised Pep Guardiola, saying the Manchester City boss lacks the capacity to handle big players with personality.
Evra made the claim while reacting to the dying minutes meltdown of Man City in Madrid in the return-leg of the Champions League Semi-final.
He said, “Manchester City needs leaders but Guardiola doesn’t want leaders,” Evra said in comments carried by Marca. “He doesn’t want personality. He’s the leader.
“That’s why when they’re in trouble they don’t want to step up. They don’t have anyone on the pitch to help them. He builds teams like that, he can’t coach people with personality.
“It was the same at Barcelona, he builds his teams to control everyone. When things go wrong he’s the only one to decide. City have made a mistake, it’s the truth. They’re traumatised. They’re like [Paris Saint-Germain]. These are clubs based on money.”
