If the rumour mill is to be believed, Paul Pogba was set to leave Manchester United at the end of the season. The Frenchman had his fair share of issues on an off the field, with his agent Mino Raiola even criticising United for the handling of Paul Pogba. According to The Athletic, Pogba had already agreed to most of the personal terms in regards to a Real Madrid transfer. 

However, the suspension of the major leagues across Europe due to the coronavirus outbreak means the summer transfer window could be delayed. With reports further suggesting the Euro 2020 could be postponed by one year, an injured Pogba might not have enough time on his hands to prove his mettle to Real Madrid or any top European club.
