It has been a fantastic few months for Paul Pogba at Manchester United since Ole has come in as manager, but one of Paul Pogba’s brothers has claimed that the midfielder was recently considering an exit from Manchester United under Jose Mourinho.

Any talk of a departure from Old Trafford has ended, but Mathias Pogba has suggested that a move to another club was recently on the agenda.

Mathias told Telefoot:

“Of course, it comes into your mind, but today he is where he is. He was under contract so he had to grit his teeth and keep working.”

Pogba has contributed six goals and five assists since working with Solskjaer.

Enjoy that? Give it a share!
