Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is open to the possibility of joining another Premier League club this summer, according to The Telegraph.
The Frenchman has less than five months remaining on his Red Devils contract but he has yet to open negotiations over a possible renewal.
The midfielder is currently focused on his club performances after his injury return. He could delay his future decision until the summer.
Several European clubs including Paris Saint-Germain are interested, but Pogba could also join another Premier League outfit next season.
Pogba recently returned to action after a three-month lay-off with a thigh injury. He has been a positive influence on the pitch, bagging a goal and an assist this month.
The midfielder has made a clear difference since his comeback, and he could play a key role for the club in their quest to finish in the Champions League positions.
His contract situation is unlikely to have any bearing on his playing time. A top-four finish could convince the midfielder to commit his future.
United’s director of football John Murtough has urged Pogba to snub any outside interest until the club formally announce the appointment of a permanent manager.
This could end up being the case with the £49.5 million-rated star focused on club duties for now. The worst-case scenario could see him turn up for one of United’s fiercest rivals.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola publicly admitted that he was offered Pogba by Mino Raiola in 2018, although the Spaniard does not have a good relationship with the agent.
