Paul Pogba is intending to leave Manchester United in the summer window, according to reports.
The midfielder has had a difficult few months due to a series of injuries and has barely appeared for United in that time — playing just twice since September of last year.
He is currently out with an ankle injury and missed out on United’s warm-weather training camp in Marbella.
And now the Manchester Evening News are reporting that he is planning to leave Old Trafford after the end of the season.
Pogba’s contract will have just 12 months left to run come the end of the current season.
That might mean United have to make a decision on his future ahead of the summer window.
The likes of Real Madrid and Juventus have previously been credited with an interest in the World Cup winner.
Former England striker Darren Bent said last week that he thought a pair of Premier League rivals could be in for the 26-year-old.
‘When you talk about Manchester United selling him, I think there’s going to be a whole host of teams lining up to get him,’ he told talkSPORT.
‘I know people are saying they [United] are going to have to take a loss on him, but I can see him going pretty much anywhere he wants – certain teams in the Premier League by the way.
‘When someone like a Paul Pogba comes available on the market – and let’s not forget he’s only 26 – there’s going to be so many takers.
‘It wouldn’t surprise me if teams like Manchester City come in for him. I can see him getting in Liverpool’s team, too. If he’s on top, top form he can get in most teams in the world.’
