Manchester United have reportedly put a €150m+ price-tag on Paul Pogba as speculation this week has once again recommended that he’ll leave this summer.
With a war of words progressing between his agent, Mino Raiola, and Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer through the media, coupled with former players also hitting out at Mino Raiola, the situation is seemingly worsening as we approach the summer.
Paul Pogba has been limited to just eight appearances for the Red Devils so far this campaign due to injury, and so there is an argument that it’s perhaps in the best interests of all concerned he just moved on, and all parties had a fresh start.
That said, the French superstar remains a world-class player on his day, and his character can’t be ignored, but further rumours have surfaced linking him with an exit this week.
As reported by Calciomercato, via the paper edition of Tuttosport, it is said that Paul Pogba will leave at the end of the season, but it could take an offer over €150m to convince Man Utd to give an exit the green light.
That is an eye-watering figure, and it could ultimately put off several interested parties, and so it remains to be seen if they are forced to lower their demands slightly to at least spark talks over a transfer.
Juve are touted as a possible destination in the report, which isn’t a surprise given this is coming from a Turin-based newspaper, although Paul Pogba did enjoy a successful stint with the reigning Serie A champions previously both an individual level and in terms of winning trophies.
Time will tell if an agreement can be reached if discussions begin between the two clubs, but Manchester United will surely be tempted to cut their ties now and move forward with fresh blood using the money generated by a Paul Pogba sale.
