According to rumors, Manchester United has agreed to let Paul Pogba depart on a free transfer at the conclusion of the season.

The World Cup winner is in the final year of his contract and has yet to reach an agreement with United on a new term.


Real Madrid, Juventus, and Paris Saint-Germain have all indicated interest in signing Pogba, who failed to leave Manchester United in 2019.

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.

The France international came off the bench in United’s 5-0 loss to Liverpool on Sunday, but was introduced before halftime before being dismissed in the 60th minute.

Former United player Paul Scholes went so far as to say after the game that the club would not miss Pogba if he left.

‘Will we see Paul Pogba in a United shirt again if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still the manager?’ Over the previous few years, he’s wreaked havoc. ‘Everyone knows what a talent he is, everyone trusts him, every manager trusts him, and every manager has tried to give him his head and let him be the player he has been,’ Scholes said.

‘But then he comes on and does something like that, with all the commotion, not signing his contract, almost holding the club to ransom.’

‘Don’t get me wrong, it’s not Ole’s fault, but that’s part of it, and it almost sums up United’s performance today.’

‘Look, he’ll almost certainly play [again], won’t he? But I don’t think they’ll notice if he doesn’t show up.
