Pogba, who joined from Juventus for a then-record €100 million three years ago, is under contract at United until June 2021, with an option for an extra year which could be triggered solely by the club.
United’s stance publicly is that the Paris native is not for sale at any price, though they have privately valued him at €160m in case they ever open the door for a move. Real Madrid, who are the only club Pogba is considering joining, will try to lower a potential transfer fee to around €120m, sources add.

The last stroke that broke the camel’s back was the underwhelming 1-1 draw against relegated Huddersfield at the weekend ended United’s hopes of muscling into the top four, opening the door for scorn and derision to be lumped upon the people running the club – particularly chief executive Ed Woodward.
