All about Pogba
Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has cast his opinion on Paul Pogba’s recent admission of wanting a new challenge elsewhere. He claimed that “some players” use interest of other clubs to get pay-rise from their current club.
He believes that Pogba falls in the same category, even though he admitted that he doesn’t have much personal knowledge about him.
"From my experience, some players, when they know the interest of a club wanting to sign them, as in the case of Pogba, they either use it to get a raise in the club they are or to push and leave to join the club that is interested in them,” he was quoted by Daily Star.

"I don't have a personal knowledge of what Pogba is thinking about, but we have some hints.”
Calderon noted the similarity in the strategy used by Pogba with that of Eden Hazard’s and also added that it could be troubling to sign the Frenchman because most Madrid players don’t want to leave.
"He's used the same strategy as (Eden) Hazard in speaking out publicly and saying that he would like to leave the club.
"It's big trouble, also, because Real Madrid need not to spend more than €100m of the money they get from sales. But up until now, no one wants to leave."
Meanwhile, according to reports from Spain, Juventus are willing to offer €140 million for Paul Pogba and while it is less than the €180 million asking price of United, the Red Devils are willing to negotiate a deal with the Old Lady.
