Paul Pogba is one of the most high profile football players on the planet. From over 7 million followers on twitter and constantly featuring in Manchester United transfer news, hardly a day goes by without Pogba being in the news.

Paul Pogba Profile


Paul Labile Pogba was born on 15 March 1993 in Lagny-sur-Marne, France. He spent his youth career at Roissy-en-Brie, Torcy and Le Havre before announcing he was departing Le Havre to join Manchester United's youth academy in 2009.

Pogba struggled to get enough game time under Alex Ferguson and forced a move away from the club. Ferguson confirmed that Pogba had signed for Juventus on 3 July 2012, a bitter blow because he moved to the Italian club on a free transfer.

Paul Pogba won four Serie A titles, two Coppa Italia titles and two Supercoppa Italiana titles at Juventus before making a sensational switch back to the Red Devils. Pogba returned to Manchester United on 8 August 2016 on a five-year contract for a then-record for highest football transfer fee at €105 million plus bonuses.

Internationally Pogba captained France to victory at the 2013 FIFA U20 World Cup and won the Best Player award at the tournament. He featured prominently at the 2014 FIFA World Cup where he was awarded the Best Young Player Award. 

Pogba represented France at the 2019 UEFA European Championship where Les Bleus finished as a runner-up. He and France made amends two years later when they won the 2018 FIFA World Cup with Pogba scoring in the final.

Paul Pogba Club After January Transfer Window Betting Odds


Paul Pogba has long been linked with a move to Real Madrid and team up with current manager Zinedine Zidane. We have already seen Cristiano Ronaldo move from Manchester United to Real Madrid for a huge transfer fee so it wouldn't surprise.

If Zidane is sacked or leaves the La Liga giants could we see a change in approach? Barcelona are apparently linked to Pogba which would be a sensational move. Former club Juventus are also in the mix alongside French champions PSG.

Regardless, the January transfer window might be a bit too soon for a move but the transfer news won't be fading away any time soon. Odds from PaddyPower and correct on 10 October 2019:
