Manchester United will have to lower their £75million asking price for Paul Pogba, according to Metro.co.uk. Mino Raiola revealed that Pogba wants to leave the club.
The Frenchman has just 18 months on his deal with United. And with time running down, United unwilling to let him leave this month. The club’s last chance to receive a respectable fee for Pogba will be in the summer transfer window.
United broke the world transfer record to sign Pogba for £89m in 2016. United hope to recoup a significant chunk of the money spent on Pogba with sources telling Metro.co.uk that the midfielder is valued at £75m by the club.
Pogba has attracted initial interest from former club Juventus, while Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are also possible destinations for the midfielder. However, there is an acceptance at Old Trafford that United are unlikely to receive bids in the region of their asking price. But an exchange offer could be of interest to United as the club feels an increasing squeeze on their finances due to the pandemic.
