Manchester United’s transfer trysts with Paul Pogba are about to reemerge. The French midfielder dominated the summer headlines with his comments and Real Madrid was quite the awaiting party.

However, no deal materialized back then, with the board at Old Trafford adamant that Pogba would only be sold for a full cash move at their stipulated price.

Since then, it was almost assured that Pogba would remain on the transfer radar in one way or another. As of recent, his injury woes had reignited these rumors and the most recent claim suggests that United aren’t going to be passive about the ordeal.

According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United are going to sell Paul Pogba before the start of the next season as they wish to use the funds from that deal for vital pieces of business elsewhere.

Specifically, it is reported that the acquisition of central midfielders is being prioritized for the summer transfer window as well as a striker.

Ajax’s Donny van de Beek and Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez are the names being discussed in this regard. The two players would bring the intended skillset of creativity and dynamic forward play that Solskjaer is a massive proponent of at Old Trafford.


Jose Mourinho: ‘Scott McTominay Is Only The Best Player At Manchester United’

However, United’s current midfield is also impeccable with academy graduate Scott McTominay acing the spot while Fred is finally proving to be the crucial transfer he was initially hyped up to be.

If anything, the central attacking midfield is the area that ought to be invested in as United still lack a capable face there.

Pogba’s sale is probably to end the saga as it seems clear that he won’t extend his stay at United and by the time the summer window rolls around, only a year will be left on paper despite contractual clauses making it possible to extend it by a year.
