Manchester United accept Paul Pogba decision to leave the club
Paul Pogba is expected to depart Manchester United on a free transfer at the conclusion of the season, according to reports.
The World Cup winner from France is in the final year of his contract and has so far been unable to reach an agreement with United.
Pogba has been linked with moves to Real Madrid, Juventus, and Paris Saint-Germain.
According to ESPN, United’s management has suspected for months that Pogba would not sign a new contract, and they are now prepared to lose him on a free transfer next summer.
United will not try to get a transfer price for Pogba by selling him in the January window, according to the source, and will instead keep the 28-year-old for the rest of the season.
United is also thought to be making preparations for Pogba’s departure and will bolster their midfield alternatives in the summer.
‘You’d have to ask Manchester United about it,’ Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola said when asked about the midfielder’s future this week.
‘Everything is calm right now.’ There is no new information.’
Pogba, who joined United from Juventus for £89 million in 2016, has struggled to find consistency in his second spell at Old Trafford.
On Sunday, October 24, the France international came off the bench in United’s 5-0 loss to Liverpool, and was sent off in the 60th minute after coming on at halftime.
