Pogba: The Real Reason Why I Snubbed Los Blancos

Paul Pogba: The Real Reason Why I Snubbed Los Blancos

By Keegan Kruger - Dec 13, 2017 10:28 AM @KeeganKruger

Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba has admitted he was close to joining Real Madrid last season.

'Man Utd Much More Boring Under Mourinho Than Me!'

The 24-year-old returned to Old Trafford for a hefty fee of £89 million (R1.61 billion) after four years in Italy with Serie A giants Juventus.

In an exclusive interview recently, Pogba highlighted the fact that he had an opportunity to join the Spanish giants, but his "heart" told him to return to the Premier League and rejoin the Red Devils instead.

"To be honest, Real Madrid came to me, and I was thinking to go there, and I was thinking to go to Manchester United too," Pogba told Beyond the Pitch.

"But I always felt it in my heart. My heart told me to come back here.

"I don't know why, I didn't know what was going to happen, but I did it, and I don't regret. I never regret my choice."

By doing that you missed the opportunity to lift La Liga, Club World Cup and the Champions League and I'm not sure if you'll ever get a chance to correct your mistake or if you can achieve those accolades where you are
