It’s likely to take a monster offer to persuade Pogba to commit his future to the club, as he would be in a position to demand a massive signing on fee alongside huge wages should he wait it out to leave on a free transfer.
Over recent years it has seemed on more than one occasion that a departure was likely, with Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola at times appearing to try and publicly force a move.
In December, Raiola was definite in his assessment of his client’s future at United with reported interest from Juventus and Real Madrid.
‘I can say that it’s over for Paul Pogba at Manchester United,’ he said to Tuttosport.
He added: ‘Paul is unhappy with Man United as he is no longer able to express himself in the way that he would like and as he is expected to. Paul needs a new team, a change of air.’
However the Frenchman remained a regular feature of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and made 42 appearances for his club across all competitions last season.
