Report – £15million-a-year star will secure Manchester United exit in summer

Blaise Matuidi and Paul Pogba for France

Manchester United star Paul Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford in the past few transfer windows but the Frenchman has stayed put.

The Red Devils opted to agree a one year extension in his contract, which will now expire in 2022 but reports in the media suggest that the Les Bleus midfielder will be sold in the summer transfer window next year.

Transfer: Man United positioning to secure January signing of £215,000-a-week star – Contact made

According to Corriere dello Sport, the 27-year-old star will be sold when the international summer transfer window will open in July.

The renowned Italian source have claimed that the Old Trafford club opted to activate the extension in order to avoid losing the player for nothing. Manchester United want him to renew but barring sensational twists, he will be leaving the club in summer.

CdS have further mentioned that Zidane wants Pogba at Real Madrid and French champions Paris Saint-Germain have the World Cup winning star in their plans as well.

The former Juventus man was mostly injured in the last campaign and this season, Solskjaer has kept him out of the starting XI on and off. He did start vs West Ham last night and scored his first Premier League goal of the season.

Pogba is the second highest earner at Old Trafford and he gets around £15million-a-year (The Sun). The versatile midfielder used to be in top form for the Bianconeri week in week out. Moreover, he has consistently performed well for his country over the years.

However, in all fairness, the Frenchman has been highly inconsistent for Manchester United since returning to the club in 2016. In your opinion, should Solskjaer opt to sell him next summer?
