Man Utd news: Why Jose Mourinho could stop Paul Pogba sealing transfer to Real Madrid | Football | Sport
Pogba has made it clear in the past it would be a “dream” to join Los Blancos and he was constantly linked with a move away from Manchester United in the summer.
Burley says therefore Pogba would look to join another club if Jose Mourinho returned to the Bernabeu hot-seat.
“Well he wouldn’t want to go there, that is a good point,” the former Chelsea midfielder said.
“I think he wants out no matter what, eventually.”
And Burley does not think it will be long before Zidane is under pressure from the club’s hierarchy.
“I’d imagine [Zidane is under] quite a bit [of pressure],” he added.
“I don’t know how much from Florentino Perez, the president, at the moment but certainly from the fans and then the fans will put pressure on their president and then it all sort of rolls down onto the manager.
“And I think this is generally off the back of a well-documented horrendous performance in Paris, and it was.
“I’m just wondering whether he’s already thinking ‘why did I go back for a second spell at this club when I had so much success first time around, particularly in the Champions League?’.”
