Another day, another Paul Pogba exit rumour, with Manchester United reportedly ‘ready to sell’ the midfielder after becoming ‘fed up’ with the unsettled star.
The France international has become an increasingly disgruntled figure at Old Trafford in recent months, Pogba admitting publicly of his desire for a new challenge amid reported interest from Real Madrid and Juventus.
Both sides were believed to be interested in signing the midfielder last summer, though neither were willing to meet Manchester United‘s huge £180m asking price.
According to the Sun, however, their interest could be reignited with the Red Devils ready to drop their asking price for the 26-year-old, the club’s hierarchy believing Pogba’s apparent lack of commitment is having a negative effect on their prospects of progress.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to develop a young, hungry side who are committed to the rebuilding process, and both he and the club’s board believe a parting of ways is now best for all parties – as long as their demands are met.
Pogba has made just eight appearances for the club in all competitions this season as he battles persistent ankle problems, and United are now ready to sanction the sale of a player who believes he will be unable to fulfil his ambitions of winning major silverware during a transitional phase for the club.
United are said to be wanting to retrieve a fee in the region of £150m for a player, who signed in a then world-record £89m deal from Juventus in 2016.
