"Things are going to happen" - Pogba's brother hints at uncertain Manchester United future

Paul Pogba's brother, Florentin, has recently said in an interview that there is the possibility of his brother leaving Manchester United for Real Madrid in the summer.

According to several reports, Zinedine Zidane has made the French World Cup winner his main target for the summer, with the Real Madrid squad needing a massive overhaul due to this season's struggles.

Pogba has time and time again said that Zidane was his idol growing up, and whilst Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that Pogba will still be at the club next season, and will be an integral part of the rebuilding that the club will have, Zidane would find it hard to resist splashing out £130 million for the midfielder.

Florentin, who plays for MLS side Atlanta United, hinted at a possible move for his brother, saying that "In football, many things can happen." He also added that "Things are going to happen. Now comes summer. We'll see if he stays or if he leaves."

According to several reports, Pogba will need to take a drastic pay cut in order to join Real Madrid, and although Solskjaer seems confident that the Frenchman will sign an extension to his contract, the possibility of playing under Zidane will be constantly on Pogba's mind.

So far this season, Pogba has scored 13 goals and assisted 9 others in 33 Premier League appearances, with this being his most successful league season ever in terms of sheer numbers, and his brother seems convinced, saying "For me he has done a good job although we see that it is very difficult to qualify for the Champions League, we'll see how things end."

Pogba and Manchester United's next match will be against Huddersfield Town on Sunday, and with a top four spot practically out of reach, one will question where Pogba's mind will be as the match unfolds.
