Manchester United star to plead with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to leave the club

Paul Pogba news

Pogba wants United exit before pre-season tour

France international Paul Pogba is reportedly set to make a personal plea to Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in order to part ways with the club this summer.

The Frenchman has been regarded as a potential transfer target for both Real Madrid and Juventus, and they are deemed to have made initial enquiries regarding the player's availability.

According to The Sun, United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has no plans to sanction Pogba's sale this summer but the midfielder is still expected to hold talks regarding a potential exit next month.

Pogba is said to have already informed his teammates that he wants to head through the exit door and he is seemingly prepared to plead with Ole to sanction his sale before the pre-season friendlies begin.

Both Madrid and Juventus are reluctant to pay more than £90m for the World Cup winner but reports have emerged that the former could propose to offer Isco as a makeweight to significantly reduce the asking price.
