Manchester United are reportedly getting ready to sell Paul Pogba during his summer transfer window, but will demand a fee of at least €100m (£83m) for the midfielder.
Pogba has not regularly featured this season after struggling with injury, making just 7 Premier League appearances, and his future has been the subject of constant speculation after he admitted in the summer he would be interested in a “new challenge.”
The 26-year-old has been most heavily linked with either a return to his previous club Juventus or to Spanish giants Real Madrid, but according to The Guardian the Red Devils will not accept any offer under their asking price of £83m.
His agent Mino Raiola this week added fuel to the flames of the speculation by admitting his client could be tempted with a return to Turin, where he played for Juventus between 2012-2016.
“Italy is like home for Paul. He would not mind going back to Juve but we will see what will happen after the Euros,” he said.
“Paul wants to play at the best level but he can’t escape by Manchester United if they are in a difficult situation.”
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has always maintained that Pogba is part of his plans, although with the player set to enter the final year of his contract it seems likely he will depart this summer.
