Pogba to be sold by United?

Manchester United will reportedly seek to sell midfielder Paul Pogba prior to the beginning of Euro 2020.

The Frenchman is supposedly keen on a fresh challenge away from the club and reports have emerged that he could be permitted to leave Old Trafford in the summer.

According to The Mirror, the Red Devils have set an asking price of £83m for Pogba amid the speculated interest from the likes of Real Madrid and Juventus.

It is added that the club are keen on sanctioning his sale prior to the start of Euro 2020 such that they can boost their transfer funds and have sufficient time to pursue a replacement.

Pogba, who is effectively contracted to United until June 2022, has made just seven league appearances this term due to a string of ankle injuries. He is currently in rehabilitation following his ankle surgery last month.

No return date has been mentioned but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted that the midfielder may make his comeback by the middle of next month.
