Manchester United are reportedly struggling to find a buyer for star midfielder Paul Pogba this summer.
Pogba is widely expected to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season, with ESPN reporting that it is inevitable the Frenchman will be sold.
But according to the Evening Standard, United are torn over Pogba’s future and are reluctant to cut their losses on the World Cup winner.
The Evening Standard’s report claims that there is an ‘overriding belief’ within the club that no one has the financial power to complete a transfer for Pogba.
There are concerns that even clubs who may be able to afford Pogba, such as Juventus and Real Madrid, may not come up with a realistic bid meaning the midfielder could stay put at Old Trafford beyond this season.
United will clearly have to drop their asking price considerably if they are to offload Pogba, who has made just eight appearances in all competitions this season.
But despite the fact Pogba’s season has become something of a non-event due to injuries, he is still a world-class player that would improve most midfields in world football.
A move away from Old Trafford could hinge on Pogba performing well at the European Championships for France this summer as a way of attracting potential buyers.
