Paul Pogba was reportedly instructed by Real Madrid to link up with his Manchester United teammates for the start of their pre-season tour.
Red Devils officials were worried the France international would not show for their flight to Australia on Sunday after comments made by his agent two days earlier.
Mino Raiola reiterated that the midfielder is seeking a move away from Old Trafford this summer, with Madrid his most likely destination if he is granted a transfer.
Spanish outlet AS claims that Los Blancos were behind Pogba’s decision to fly Down Under as they do not want to cause problems with United’s hierarchy as they continue discussions over a big-money deal.
The report also indicates that Madrid previously urged the World Cup winner to put the wheels in motion for a switch to the Bernabeu by initially declaring his intention to leave last month.
Pogba was named in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year last season and he has also been linked with a move to former club Juventus.
