During the Euro Pogba changed his twitter background from a Juventus theme to a more plain, neutral theme and he also unfollowed Juventus (although it was found out he never followed Juventus to begin with)- if it sounds like a teenage girl on social media, that's because it is exactly what it is. I do not even use twitter but the sheer absurdity of it all really resonated with me.

It was then that I learned what kind of war this would be, the dirtiest kind of information war GL has ever seen Molenation

Do you have any problem if I post quotes something relevant to this ? I am wrong to post a quote I just heard from his press conference even if it doesn't indicate anything ?

If you don't have a problem, kindly zip it. I'll post what I want here as long as I'm not breaking the rules. People already know what I think of this transfer.

I don't need people coming here telling me on what to do. Stick to the Madrid forum and go moan about how many injuries you have and why Perez isn't addressing your fancy wishes.

Just get lost. Another person doing the same and I'm going to get violent. I am telling you now.

I honestly was just kidding, and even though I believe your reply was needlessly aggressive, I'd still like to apologize to you for upsetting you.

Sorry man if I offended you, that wasn't really my intention Smile

Man up, Demon, ffs.

This Juventile clown came at us hard, for showing compassion to him no less.

We shouldn't offer the other cheek.

We need to team up and take him out.

Let's bury the hatchet and unite to teach him a lesson.

Enough is enough, Sugar has it coming.

So what are you saying? That he's not going to Man U?
Seriously?

Or are you saying he is going to Man U despite not wanting, and that's why it takes a couple fo weeks longer Laughing


They're tempting him with enough money to set him, his family and his heirs up for life... that's something you don't just walk away from. In fact, if he does, he's wired differently than 99.99999999999% of people out there.

It's not like he's going to Getafe either.

Is he poor? What is this family set for life argument ffs.

Making money is good but let's not make it seem like making millions of euros a year is not being "set".

If he retired today the Pogba's would already be set

Sorry, but if someone offers me 100 million and another 10 million + both are very reputable companies... I take 100 million Laughing  And that's pretty much what it is. Man U is offering Pogba 55 mil net in wages and an estimated additional 35 mil gross in image rights. At Juve, he would make 20 mil net over the same time period.

Karl Marx would be proud of you if you refused Laughing

That very much depends on your standard of living tbh

If your standard of living is such that you require 10m yearly, earning 9m is not going to cut it, you'll need to go where they pay 13m.

Then you can save 3m per year, if you stay 5 years you will have saved enough money to last one year and a half after you retire.

It's not easy tbh

I get your point sports and money is obviously a strong and reasonable motivator

But this whole, lets set my future family up for generations is quite and absolutely ridiculous
He has a 40 million euro Adidas deal
He's one of the most popular players on the planet
He earns a hefty wage at Juventus

Lets be realistic, he could retire tomorrow and those generations are still going to be ok
Even Balotelli has a net worth of millions

More is more but that's what separates Real Madrid from everyone else, its not always about the money [I'm not implying it isn't partially about the money though]

For the life of me I never understood that argument of Pogba setting himself for life. You do realize that he already has enough to live comfortably without depriving himself of anything until his last day?

Even if he had stayed at Juventus, his lifestyle would've been synonymous of a king's.

There's a certain income level, a threshold if you will, at which any more money you make won't make a difference in your lifestyle. And it only takes a person with bottomless greed to keep asking for more after that.

This whole move is only about the money, true, and money is important don't get me wrong, but please don't act as if Pogba is a poor kid trying to set himself for life. He's already among the richest 1% in the world.

I agree but it is obvious that a big incentive to join Manchester United, for example, would be the massive increase in his wages- triple if we believe reports and image rights and all sort of other BS really

There's no such thing as having "enough money"...  especially these days.  100 million is what 10 million used to be 10 years ago and there's no sign that the elite are going to slow down anytime soon in terms of the speed at which they are accumulating wealth.

Which brings me to my point...  when you get to the level of a Pogba or any other very successful person in their field, you're not measuring yourself against the average Joe.  You want to live at the same level as the other extremely successful people.  That's your new standard.

And given that your maximum earning potential as a football player only lasts 5-10 years, you need to make those count.

For a deal that was all but done, about a month ago, it's taking quite a long time. It will go down as one of the worst transfer sagas in recent memory if Pogba doesn't move.

The deal is taking too long. The heat has dissipated in this feud, and as a casual fan, I don't care about this deal anymore.

It went from a dream feud to a midcard one. :facepalm:

GL doesn't know how to build long term feuds without 50/50 booking anymore sadly.

After Gazzetta say Paul Pogba is in Manchester, Juventus midfielder seen in New York...

Lots of confusion about Paul Pogba’s whereabouts. Is he in Manchester or New York?

Gazzetta gets Pogba facts wrong

Things have developed fast on Saturday night regarding the Paul Pogba updates.

Leading Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport posted an article on their website claiming that, while now pictures existed as proof, Paul Pogba was in Manchester ahead of his move to united.

Gazzetta confidently stated Pogba will have his United medical on Sunday before his move would be confirmed in the coming days.

That report has now been proved to been widely wrong.

Pogba spotted in New York

Contrary to Gazzetta’s claims, the lads behind @IFTV_Official have confirmed that Pogba was still in New York at the time GdS published their story.

Moreover, they claim Pogba is first heading back to France after he leaves the Big Apple.

Nevertheless, they also report that Pogba will head to England after he returns home for personal reasons.

Man United bound Paul Pogba signed paper saying ‘I am staying at Juventus’

Paul Pogba signs a piece of paper for Juve fans. Did he see what was on it?

It feels like something seismic would have to now happen to stop Paul Pogba leaving Juventus to join Manchester United.

Indeed, on Saturday night, leading Italian paper Gazzetta dello Sport announced that Pogba has landed in Manchester ahead of his return to Old Trafford.

The French midfielder is due to have his medical on Sunday.

While all this goes on, a couple of American Italian Juve fans have garnered attention for a run in they had with Pogba last week in New York.

Now there’s picture evidence

The Juve fans have now posted a couple of pictures on social media showing that Pogba also signed a piece of paper for them.

On the paper, written in clear English, were the words ‘I am staying at Juventus’.

Also clear on the paper was Pogba’s signature.

Of course, Pogba probably signed this paper just to be nice to the lads. However it’s given the slightest renewed belief to the Bianconeri supporters that Pogba could yet remain at the club.
