Pogba to leave for free

Transfer gossip saying both Real and PSG want to sign Pogba for free next year.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/football/58229597

The question really is whether we try to sell him this summer or keep him and let him go for free. He'll be able to discuss with other clubs as soon as January, though I think Mino would have alerted them by whether Pogba will renew or not.

As much as I like Pogba, if he won't renew, best to sell him now and reinvest.

I didn’t say it would be a step down but he’s rejoined us having been a youth player and we’re finally building a proper team. It’s not square pegs in round holes for the first time since Fergie and the first XI and squad is really taking shape.

yes, pity we didn't get round to this 5 years ago i guess

Exactly. I just think that Poggers could give us two more years and still have enough years left to go to a top club and earn too money.

He’s 28 now at 30 he could still do a PSG move for big money.

I just don’t like the way it’s going; not signing a contract and going on a free AGAIN. Ronaldo made it abundantly clear that he wanted Real, he stayed an extra year, gave his all and we still got a top fee for him. Pogba has more history with us and isn’t seemingly doing anything similar…

was the club's first attempt to get ronaldo to extend his contract when he had 12 months left on his current one?

people should be asking why the club - as it did with de gea, as it did with herrera - decided to leave it so late to offer the player a new contract. if you leave it until there is one year left, all the power is with the player, and you either get bent over a barrel to keep them (de gea), or lose them on a free (herrera).

if we were a well-run club pogba would have been offered a new contract 2 years ago, and either signed it, or been sold.

We’re better off keeping him for a year and letting him go, if he’s not going to sign a new contract.

I’m pretty sure that the people in charge of Manchester United are well aware of basics such as that. You’re talking about a multi billion pound company negotiating a contract and value in the tens of millions of pounds. If you think they’ve just left it until now, I think you’re being a bit naive.

thanks for the patronising response, though a simple yes or no would have sufficed

Wouldn’t be a surprise if he signs a new contract anyway. The club might want to try and get Raiola onside as well so we can get Haaland next year.

Sorry didn’t mean it to read patronisingly but it’s a bit silly to think that clubs deliberately let these things roll on to the last minute. I’m sure that conversations and factors involved are all having an impact for the past year to two years. There’s too much money involved not to.

If Pogba runs down his contract, why the feck would he go to PSG?

The PSG rumours have been used as a bargaining chip for better wages at United imo. Whatever people think of Pogba, he has bigger ambitions than PSG, he's also on record saying that he'd never play for them.

If he's to leave, it will be too Real or back to Juve.

PSG aren't going to want Pogba whilst they have Neymar and Messi.

They can only carry so many luxury players.

Real could be doing some good business next year. They could do a ‘PSG’ by getting Mbappe and Pogba for free and Haaland on the cheap. Might be a strategy that they’re banking on while they work to get rid of Bale and Hazard et all
