Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba could be on his way out of the club with his representatives having opened negotiations with Real Madrid and Juventus.
The Frenchman has less than three months remaining on his current deal with the Red Devils. It appears unlikely that he will put pen-to-paper on a contract extension.
He is free to discuss terms with overseas clubs and Sky Sports reports that his representatives are already in talks with Real Madrid and Juventus over a Bosman transfer.
Both European clubs have been long-term admirers of his services, but it is claimed that the World Cup winner has not ruled out staying in the Premier League next season.
Pogba has endured an injury-plagued campaign with the Red Devils. He has managed 10 goal contributions in 27 outings, but may have played his final game for the club.
The £49.5 million-rated star limped off with a calf injury in the 10th minute at Anfield last night. It is unclear whether he can make his comeback over next four weeks.
Pogba has always had a mixed opinion among the fans and it is not surprising that he does not want to renew, considering the lack of progress at the Red Devils.
The club have not won silverware for the fifth-straight campaign, and the drought could potentially extend next year with a squad overhaul and a period of transition.
Parting of ways seems the ideal solution for Pogba and the club this summer, but United will be hoping he does not sign up for one of their Premier League rivals.
