Insight provided into Paul Pogba's stance on Newcastle switch


An insight into the stance of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba when it comes to the possibility of taking his talents to newly-minted Newcastle has been provided on Thursday.

The subject of French international Pogba's future has of course come back to the fore in a major way over the course of the last 24 hours.

Where, though, could the World Cup winner end up?

A host of Europe's biggest clubs have inevitably been tipped as potential landing spots ahead of the 2022/23 campaign, with the likes of Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and former club Juventus understood to be keen on Pogba's signature.

It has been suggested, though, that the midfielder himself would not be against the prospect of remaining in England, courtesy of a free transfer to one of Manchester United's Premier League rivals.

Links to Newcastle, expected to take their big-money recruitment drive under the club's new Saudi ownership to the next level in the summer, were, in turn, inevitable.

But, if the latest word stemming from the media on Thursday evening is anything to go by, then those of a Magpies persuasion hopeful of seeing Pogba pull on the famed black and white in the near future need not get their hopes up.

As per a report from talkSPORT, the French international has absolutely no intention of taking his talents to Tyneside this summer.

Fernandes assisted

Pogba, of course, proved instrumental earlier this week, in guiding United to a first victory in four across all competitions.

After Cristiano Ronaldo put Ralf Rangnick's troops in front during a Premier League meeting with Brighton at Old Trafford, Pogba set Bruno Fernandes free to make it two and seal the three points deep into injury time, guiding the Red Devils back into the English top-flight's top-4 in the process.
