Paul Pogba can leave Manchester United in less than six months for free.
The Reds, who brought Pogba back to Old Trafford back in 2016, have endured an underwhelming five years and now they could lose one of their biggest assets for free when his contract expires.
Pogba is 28-years-old and he isn’t a promising kid anymore. He is an established footballer who is expected to play at a high level with consistency, which he doesn’t, and along with his agent Mino Raiola he will trying to get the biggest deal this summer.
The World Cup-winner’s agent has never been shy when it comes to publicly touting his star client to other clubs, including potential destinations like Real Madrid and a return to Juventus.
Reports this week suggested there was a new offer on the table for Pogba and with bonuses it would’ve added up to £500,000-per-week.
But a spokesman for Pogba has issued a statement to the Daily Mail to deny suggestions of a recently extended contract offer from United.
The statement read: “To clarify media reports, Paul has not been offered a new contract in recent months. Paul is fully focused on his recovery from injury with the aim of helping the team as soon as possible.”
However, transfer guru Fabrizio Romano claims Pogba has a contract extension on the table from United since last July.

Only time will tell what decision Pogba makes but he is annoying fans by dragging out this contract situation. It can’t be good for the dressing room either.
