Pogba’s attraction to Real Madrid and Zidane is understandable – Berbatov
Paul Pogba’s attraction to Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane is understandable, says Dimitar Berbatov, with Manchester United warned they will regret letting the Frenchman leave if a summer sale is sanctioned.
Speculation regarding a big-money switch to Spain continues to build around a World Cup-winning midfielder.
He has aired his admiration of the Blancos, while fellow countryman Zidane has admitted that the 26-year-old is a player he would like to work with at some stage in his coaching career.
Berbatov can see why a move is being mooted, with Pogba continuing to attract criticism for supposed inconsistency and a questionable mindset at Old Trafford.
The former United striker is, however, of the opinion that the Red Devils are playing a dangerous game in allowing a player with undoubted “brilliance” to edge towards the exits.
Berbatov told Betfair of a long-running saga: “One player people always talk about is Paul Pogba and the transfer rumours seem to swirl around him all season long.
“I hope that he will stay, because I like him as a player and as a person.
