Manchester United fear losing World Cup winner on a free transfer next summer

Manchester United are considering entering talks with Paul Pogba to extend his contract with the club which is set to expire next summer, as per ESPN.

The Frenchman will be allowed to negotiate a new deal with other clubs from January onwards. 

This means that the Red Devils have a last chance to cash in on him this summer.

Sources have informed ESPN that the club fears that Pogba ‘will run down his contract’ and leave on a free transfer.

European giants like Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus have been linked with him over the past few transfer windows.

However, it is believed that none of these clubs has the financial backing to acquire his services this summer.

As a result, the World Cup winner’s exit from Old Trafford is highly unlikely.

Red Rants view 

The 28-year old midfielder has been a vital part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team this past season.

He struggled to find form at the start of the campaign but later played a crucial role in taking the Red Devils to second spot in the Premier League.

Pogba made 42 appearances across all competitions, scoring six goals and providing six assists.

If the Red Devils want to challenge for titles next season, they need to have influential players like Pogba in their squad.

Allowing him to leave on a free transfer for the second time wouldn’t be a great sight for the club.
