Paul Pogba’s father has fuelled speculation that his son wants to compete in a better league. The Juventus star is hinting at an exit from Turin, in order to play in a more demanding and competitive league. 

The Frenchman has been drawing interests from several major clubs around the world, with the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid desperate to get his signature.

Paul Pogba joined Juventus in the Serie A league in 2012 for free from Manchester United. Since then he has grown into one of the top midfielders in the world. Manchester United are said to be in the race to get him back with Real Madrid his preferred destination.  

Pogba has great control with the ball and has the potential to dominate teams from midfield. His long range shooting ability and dribbling are what makes him a lethal attacking midfielder. His current run in the UEFA Euro 2016 has been exceptional and the clubs will be hoping to rope him in.

Making his views clear, Pogba’s father Fassou Antoine Pogba claimed that his son “wants to play in a better league” while addressing a TV Station, Cuatro. When asked if his son would “sign for Real Madrid?” He replied “interesting” but also added that Pogba will decide on which team he wishes to play for. 

Real Madrid and Manchester United have been handed a great boost in their pursuit of Pogba with the news delivered by his father. They will be hoping to strike in a deal with Juventus to get the talisman’s signature.

Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has also hinted at a possible move out for Pogba from Juventus. Mino Raiola adds that Pogba needs to grow into his full potential and for that, he needs to move away from Turin.

So the French International who will be in action in the ongoing Euro 2016 quarterfinal clash against Iceland could be on the move away from Turin this transfer window. 

What is to bee seen is if Manchester united get back the midfield maestro that they created or will Real Madrid be his destination? Or will he choose a surprising destination?
