Paul Pogba: Inside Juventus’ Three Options for Former Manchester United Star Amid Injury Plagued Season

  • Serie A giants Juventus will reportedly reconsider the Paul Pogba situation at the end of the season
  • Pogba has had arguably the worst season of his career, with injuries limiting his game time
  • Juventus have previously considered terminating his four-year contract

Talks of Paul Pogba walking away from Juventus have reemerged again following the midfielder’s latest injury setback.

It is now reported that Juventus’ bosses are becoming increasingly impatient with the midfielder, who has only featured for less than 40 minutes this season.

The French star damaged his knee ligaments last season, which required surgery. The Mirror now reports that the Old Lady is mulling over the situation.

The first option on the table is ripping the 30-year-old’s contract and setting him free from his four-year contract.

Redondo situation

The other option the club has is renegotiating with the former Manchester United star to take a pay cut. As Tribal Football reports, Fernando Redondo previously offered to take a pay cut after an injury-ridden season at AC Milan.

The last feasible option would be to leave things the way they are with the hope that the massively talented midfielder can rediscover his form next season. Pogba is not helping issues at the moment, with two disciplinary issues already on his record.

He was dropped recently for the Europa League clash against Freiburg. Last year, he reportedly angered Allegri during injury rehab by undertaking a very risky personal activity while on holiday. Pogba uploaded a video of himself on a ski trip despite nursing a knee injury that delayed his second debut for Juve.

Pogba’s emotional message

Sports Brief reported that Paul Pogba has written a very emotional message after he suffered another huge setback in his disappointing season. His tribulations led him to react on social media. The creative midfielder took to his accounts and wrote:

“Allah does not burden a soul beyond what it can bear.”

The staunch Muslim received support from his colleagues led by Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes
