Man United prepared to lose Paul Pogba for free next summer: report

Man United are bracing themselves to lose Paul Pogba for nothing…

For the last five years, Manchester United have been trying to ‘unlock Paul Pogba’. From changing manager, to changing the Frenchman’s position several times, nothing seems to have worked.

The midfielder, who was at United as a youth player, has struggled to find consistency within his game. The truth is, game by game, week by week, we never really know which Pogba is going to turn up.

While it’s fair to say under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Pogba has improved, I’ve always believed that the World Cup winner’s mind was already made up. Following a spat with Jose Mourinho, it always felt like Pogba had his heart set on playing elsewhere.

Now, it looks as though United have succumbed to defeat. According to ESPN, the Reds have now accepted that the key midfield star will not sign a new contract at Old Trafford.

With that in mind, they’re ‘prepared’ to let him go for free. Honestly, this feels like United trying to save face. After all, Pogba has constantly rejected contract offers placed in front of him so it’s not like the Old Trafford club ever had a choice.

To lose Pogba for free once when he was young was bad enough, but to lose him twice, particularly after paying big money to sign him, definitely looks horrendous from the outside looking in.

So what now?

Perhaps it’s genuinely better that Pogba leaves. The constant flirting with other clubs via his agent and brother definitely hasn’t helped the situation.

Sure, financially it’ll hit United where it hurts, but as a fan, I’m indifferent to the news. I get it, on his day there aren’t many better players. I’m just not convinced he fits into what United are trying to achieve right now – and that’s not a bad thing.

Replacing him will obviously not be easy, either. Perhaps this could finally mean a chance for Donny van de Beek? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see how this one plays out.

Should Man United just let Pogba go? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
