While Paul Pogba is minting close to £15million a year deal from his deal at Man United, the rest of the Pogba brothers have not tasted similar success. Guinea international Mathias Pogba began his career with French football side Quimper in 2009. He later went on to play for multiple clubs like Wrexham, Crewe, Crawley Town and Partick Thistle. Mathias Pogba has signed for over 10 teams in his decade-long career but failed to make it to any top European side. Unlike Paul Pogba, his brother Mathias Pogba plays in the forward position. He enjoyed his best time at Crewe Alexandra where he spent two seasons and scored 17 goals. Paul Pogba's other brother Florentin Pogba recently signed a deal with French second division club, Sochaux.
The 27-year-old World Cup winner was linked with a move to Real Madrid in the upcoming transfer window. However. the economical havoc caused by the coronavirus pandemic could halt the Paul Pogba transfer talk. Real Madrid will find it difficult to match Man United's asking price of a reported £80 million for Paul Pogba, considering the financial damage caused by the pandemic. Paul Pogba is expected to stay at Man United next season as well. According to reports, Paul Pogba has fully recovered from his injury and is set to make a comeback for Man United when the Premier League returns later this month.
