Manchester United have accepted that their midfielder, Paul Pogba, will leave the Red Devils on a free transfer at the end of the season, ESPN reports.
Man United’s hierarchy have felt for several months that Pogba would not sign a new contract at Old Trafford and are now resigned to losing him on a free transfer next summer.
The report added that the Premier League giants will not be looking to secure a transfer fee for the 28-year-old by selling him in the January window, and are planning to keep the midfielder for the remainder of the season.
Man United are also said to be already making plans for Pogba’s exit and will strengthen their midfield options next summer.
Pogba has entered the final year of his contract at Man United and has so far failed to agree on a new deal with the club.
The France international has drawn the interest of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain in the past.
Speaking on Pogba’s future earlier this week, the player’s agent, Mino Raiola said: “You would have to ask Manchester United about it.
“At this moment everything is calm. There is no update.”
