Manchester United under pressure to sell Pogba
The French international and World Cup winner, Paul Pogba has a year left on his £290,000-a-week contract with the Red Devils and has given no indication that he is interested in signing a new one
Manchester United are reportedly under pressure to sell Paul Pogba this summer to avoid losing him on a free transfer next year.
The reports further explain that the Red Devils would have to put the player for sale in the next six weeks amid strong interest in the Frenchman from Paris Saint-Germain.
It's understood that Pogba's agent Mino Raiola is discussing personal terms with PSG, who believe they can sign the 28-year-old midfielder for less than half the £89million he cost United in 2016.
Pogba has a year left on his £290,000-a-week contract and has given no indication that he is interested in signing a new one.
This means France International will be able to walk away from Old Trafford as a free agent for the second time next summer.
Juventus paid just £800,000 in compensation when they signed Pogba in 2012 and received a then world-record fee from United when he moved in the opposite direction four years later.
The Red Devils must decide now on whether to recoup some of that money by selling Pogba before the August 31 transfer deadline or keep the player for another season and risk losing him for nothing.
PSG are one of the few clubs in Europe who could afford his salary and they think, they can persuade United to sell for around £43m although it's believed there has been no contact between the two clubs yet.
There is also likely to be interest from Spain and Italy for Pogba who has repeatedly flirted with Real Madrid.
He is due to return for pre-season training next week after Euro 2020 and a family holiday in Florida.
