Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba futures up in the air
Where will Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe end up playing next season? That’s the question that so many soccer fans have out there, as they’re both out of contract once next summer rolls around.
You better believe that countless teams will be ready to try and sign them during the transfer window. Well, speculation for where the two might end up continues. This week, both commented on their futures and it only has fans thinking they’re both on their way out from Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United, respectively.

For Mbappe, he’s made it no secret that he doesn’t see himself playing in the Ligue 1 for the long haul. With that said, he’s also come out and said that it would be a dream of his to one day play for Real Madrid.
Things nearly got over the finish line before the last window closed, but PSG wasn’t ready to part ways with the superstar forward. The two weren’t able to reach an agreement on a new deal either. Mbappe really is focused on playing elsewhere, that’s not new info.
Meanwhile for Pogba, things are a little more complicated for him. He’s now in his second stint with Man United, but things haven’t gone according to plan for him or the club.
United hasn’t won a trophy since the Europa League in 2017. While there’s excitement around the team this season, can they push for an English Premier League title? That’s up in the air due to the club’s inconsistency.
Paul Pogba answers about Juventus comeback: “I like Torino! [laughs] I always speak with former Juve team-mates like Dybala. I’m in Manchester now, I’m under contract until June then let’s see.

What might help Man United with Pogba is that they’re clearly investing for the long haul. They brought in Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho over the summer, while also landing Cristiano Ronaldo.
This reportedly impressed Pogba and he’s now more open than ever to potentially sign an extension. With that said, he’s also open to playing elsewhere. Just like Mbappe, no one knows which team he’ll suit up for next campaign.
