Manchester United are now ready to sell midfielder Paul Pogba this summer if he rejects the new contract offer, MySportDab reports.
Pogba is currently enjoying his best run of form at Old Trafford since his world-record £89m transfer from Juventus in 2016.
The French midfielder was an outstanding player in United’s 6-2 win Europa League semi-final first leg win against AS Roma.
Pogba’s current contract at Old Trafford will expire next year amid the rumours of a transfer to Real Madrid have disappeared in recent weeks.
However, According to The Mirror, Manchester United will offer the 28-year-old a new lucrative £400,000-a-week contract in talks.
The new contract if Pogba agrees, would make him United’s highest paid player at the club.
But, MySportDab understands that should Pogba refuse to commit his long-term future to the club, Manchester United won’t hesitate to sell him.
To support the new contract, United are ready to sell goalkeeper De Gea, who earns £350,000 per week, to fund Pogba’s new contract.
But United don’t have much time to convince Pogba to stay and are keen for progress in talks before this summer European Championships.
Pogba was previously linked with a move to Juventus, and some other top clubs have showed interest.
Manchester United want to avoid a repeat of the same mistake they made nine years ago, when he left Old Trafford on a free transfer.
United chiefs are not ready bow to any of Minor Raiola’s demands in terms of a new contract.
But with Juventus and Real Madrid in financial chaos due to the coronavirus pandemic, United must work to make him sign the new deal.
There is very little assurance that any club would offer to pay €100m for Paul Pogba this summer.
United have already started a search on the market for Pogba’s replacement, with Saul Niguez, Declan Rice, and Wilfred Ndidi all on the shortlist.
However, Manchester United Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes the club are winning the battle to make Pogba stay at the club.
