Manchester United’s hierarchy will have the final say when it comes to the future of midfielder Paul Pogba.
That’s according to a recent report from The Sun, who claims the Frenchman could very well have already played his last game for the Red Devils.
Pogba, 28, picked up a thigh injury while away on international duty with France and has recently been seen using crutches.
Not expected to return to action until at least the New Year and with his contract set to expire next summer, the midfielder’s long-term Old Trafford future now hangs in the balance.
It has been reported that if the club cannot find a potential buyer for Pogba during the January transfer window, they’re happy to leave him sitting on the sidelines before eventually moving him on for free in the summer.
Pogba’s time at Old Trafford has largely been a failure – although genuinely world-class on his day, inconsistent performances have hampered both his and his club’s ability to compete with England’s best.
Widely regarded as a bit of a ‘flop’ since his return from Juventus back in 2016, seeing Pogba depart during either one of the next two transfer windows, would hardly break many fans’ hearts.
However, after paying a staggering £94.5m for his services five years ago, there is no denying that should Pogba walk away from the club for free for the second time in his career, then major questions will be asked over the decision-maker’s ability to operate successfully in the transfer market.
