Manchester United set £50m price tag for 28-year-old star


Paul Pogba news

Pogba set to leave Manchester United?

Manchester United are open to sanctioning the sale of Paul Pogba after he turned down a new contract, The Mirror reports.



The Frenchman has less than 12 months remaining on his current deal, and he has now rejected a contract extension.

He is currently on wages worth £250,000-a-week, and has snubbed a £100,000 raise to pursue a new challenge.

Paris Saint-Germain are in regular contact with agent Mino Raiola, and Pogba is reportedly open to joining them.

Les Parisiens value him at around £43 million, but United are expected to hold out for at least £50m for the midfielder.

The French giants are yet to make a formal approach to the Red Devils, but that could happen in the coming weeks.

They need to offload a couple of midfielders to recoup funds before they can lodge an official bid for the 28-year-old.

Rafinha appears set to leave the club. Ander Herrera and Idrissa Gueye have also been linked with potential exits.
