I appreciate there's a lot of Pogba threads but they're all negative! This latest development isn't necessarily terrible news if you hear me out.
Okay so he wants to leave but he's still under contract until 2022 and he'll cost a hell of a lot of money, he's gone to around 60/40 with the odds to leave with Madrid odds on favourites, how can they afford him? Pogba would bring their spending to around 500 million with him and hazard joining on mega wages. I've seen a lot of players in my years observing bookies transfer odds come back from odds on to leave to eventually stay, 60/40 is by no means a sure thing especially with all the aces United hold.
Pogba is now the odds on favourite to top media madness every single day and at least place every day. The Spanish transfer window doesn't close for a lonnng time on September 2nd (English clubs can still sell to this date) and I can't see this being resolved quickly. Since the Pogba interview broke all the news from reliable-ish sites/sources (via @utdextra twitter) is that United/Ole are adamant in wanting him to stay, hard ball negotiations drag out. Maybe United will want to buy players before selling him, this too could take time.
Now if/when he finally leaves admittedly it won't be good for his price but it won't be Pogba finished as some people suggest. Hazard's move has gone through and he's £4.50, Pogba has over double his all time combined dividend returns and is 26 months younger, I think he'll settle at about £5.50-£6 and still be a media magnet. If he stays I think he'll be at least £8.50 and have earned over £1.25 in dividends throughout the summer (until september). You'd be a fool to instant sell at that price now, I'm holding my few thousand until the bitter/happy end.
*Edit, Pogba now odds on 8/11 to stay at United with the bookies.
