Paul Pogba Next Club: Latest transfer odds for French playmaker

The future of Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba remains a great talking point on the European football stage. With the Serie A club possibly open to letting him go, the destination of his next club is something all soccer fans are desperate to know.

A good idea around getting clues to determine where Pogba might be playing his football in the upcoming 2023-24 campaign is to check the betting odds. They often provide a decent idea regarding this sort of thing, so we thought we'd check them out.

Below you will find a list of the top five clubs or regions of the world where Pogba is most likely to play next season, purely based upon the betting odds set by Bet Victor. Pogba can already count Manchester United amongst his former clubs, could he be about to add another name to that list alongside Juventus?

Paul Pogba Next Club: Any Saudi Club (7/2)

It comes as no huge shock to see this sit top of the betting market. Clubs in Saudi Arabia are targeting big-name players on the European scene to try and boost the profile of their league, and Paul Pogba is someone who can generate attention in a big way.

The Daily Mail recently claimed that Saudi Pro League team Al-Ittihad have offered a lucrative three-year contract to lure the French international to the nation. Already, the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Roberto Firmino, and many more, have made the switch for mega money. Could Pogba be the next star to link up with a Saudi Arabian football team?

Paul Pogba Next Club: Any MLS club (5/1)

With Lionel Messi being officially unveiled as an MLS player this week when signing for Inter Miami, that may open the door for several more major names to move to the States. Sergio Busquets will also line-up alongside his former Barcelona teammate in Miami, whilst other stars of the league include Lorenzo Insigne, Riqui Puig, Federico Bernardeschi and Xherdan Shaqiri.

Teams in MLS are able to sign up to three ‘Designated Players' whereby they are not part of the league salary cap ruling. This would open the door for a team to sign up someone like Pogba for a huge salary and that cannot be ruled out.

Paul Pogba Next Club: Any French club (8/1)

The France international moving back to his homeland could be the sort of romantic story that Pogba would entertain this summer. The first team to instantly jump off the page is PSG, who recently allowed Messi to depart and could soon see Kylian Mbappé leave as well. The addition of Pogba would excite supporters, assuming he gets over his injury issues.

Financially, not many other teams in the league would be able to afford the kind of money Pogba would demand. There are of course other top clubs in the league such as Marseille, Monaco and Lyon, and moving to a team like that depends on Pogba receiving less money than if he went elsewhere, such as Saudi Arabia or USA.

Paul Pogba Next Club: Barcelona (16/1) or Real Madrid (16/1)

Barcelona and Real Madrid have been set separately on the betting market, but both are a 16/1 chance, and that might as well be 160/1! It would be a big shock if Pogba would be pulling on a Barcelona or Real Madrid jersey at this moment in time. He has been heavily linked in the past to a La Liga switch, but the time might now have passed.

The fact Pogba still has another three-years remaining on his Juventus contract means that the club would still command a sizeable fee, unless they are prepared to terminate his deal and let him leave for free.

The fact that Pogba himself wants to stay at Juventus, according to Tuttomercatoweb, means that a move is anything but certain. He may decide to stay and fight for his place, but firstly he must get himself fit and stay fit. Interest from Saudi Arabia is seemingly very strong, so if he is indeed to leave then this is his most likely destination, and the betting agrees.
