Transfer News: Paul Pogba rejects new Manchester United contract

According to transfer news from IB Times, Paul Pogba has rejected a new £50million contract from Manchester United. The midfielder looks set to run out his current deal at the club within a year. Real Madrid and PSG have shown some interest in Pogba.

This is not the headache Manchester United or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would have wanted with Paul Pogba. He was one of United’s standout players last season and impressed with France in the Euros as well. The problem is that he is in the last year of his current deal at the club and there’s not been much of an indication that he will renew it.

Pogba to leave United this summer?

Pogba will be free to talk to other clubs over a free transfer from January 2022. That means United are severely low on their options and selling him in this transfer window is one of them. The other option would be to keep him for the remainder of this season and hope that a new deal can be agreed upon.

It would seem that the latter option is not viable. Pogba rejected a new £50million meaning United are left with the possibility of a sale rather than losing him for free next season. United have also set a similar asking price for Pogba as PSG and Real Madrid take an interest in him. Although a move to the former appears more likely.

United can say that they at least tried with a lucrative offer. The midfielder has always had an uneasy relationship with the club and he has never looked settled here. The club will be hoping to recoup most of the money they paid for him.
