Solskjaer gives the green light to Pogba’s departure

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to give the green light on Paul Pogba’s exit, according to Daily Star.

The French World Cup star earlier revealed his intention to look out for new challenges away from Old Trafford, with Juventus and Real Madrid turning out to be his potential suitors.

Pogba, who was ostracised by former manager Jose Mourinho, began to make more impact under Solskjaer. In fact, the 26-year-old racked up 16 goals an 11 assists and turned out to be a key member in Solskjaer’s short-lived winning spree.

Now, the Norwegian manager, who is currently working towards squad overhaul, has agreed to sanction Pogba’s departure.

How will United benefit from Pogba’s exit?

Solskjaer has been offered only £100m to spend in the transfer window after missing out on the Champions League qualification.

While the reinforcements are yet to be made for several positions, the Red Devils will at least demand £140m for Pogba, who they bought from Juve for £90m. Now Solskajer can start raising funds should the French midfield get sold for a lucrative fee.

United endured one of the worst seasons in their history and the clubs’ executive vice chairman, Ed Woodward, is reluctant to make any marquee signings for next season.
