The summer transfer window closed on October 5th and a few days later, Paul Pogba spoke about his “dream” of playing for Real Madrid.

In his pre-match press conference on Friday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked about the midfielder’s future and that’s when the United manager stressed Pogba still has two more years left on his contract.

This made clear the Red Devils have exercised the option to extend the 27-year-old’s contract until 2022.

Earlier reports have discussed Real Madrid and Juventus as admirers.

Calciomercato gives an insight into why the Serie A winners failed to sign the France international in the last window and what their chances are of signing him in the future.

It’s claimed the Turin club planned for a year to bring their former player back to the club and were ready to push hard to acquire his services.

However, the Covid-19 crisis prevented them from investing in excess of €100m on Pogba and ‘blocked’ a potential operation.

The website states ‘now it is really complex’ for the Old Lady to ‘even think about’ signing the Frenchman.

With United further extending his contract until 2022, Calciomercato suggests the likes of Juve, Real Madrid or any other interested clubs may move on from Pogba.
