Manchester United may consider selling midfielder Paul Pogba for as little as £40m to prevent him leaving on a free transfer in 2022, according to The Athletic.
The Red Devils were originally looking for around £150m for the France international in the summer of 2019, but by February this year, his valuation had almost halved to £80m, even before the impact of the global health crisis.
However, due to the lack of interest in the player, and with Pogba willing to leave at the end of his contract when it expires in just over eighteen months time, there is now a feeling around the club that it is best to cut their losses on the 27-year-old.
The Frenchman, who was signed for £89m four years ago, is no longer a key first-team player, having played the full 90 minutes on just two occasions this season, with United losing on both occasions. With that being the case, there are some at the club who feel £40m could be reinvested in buying players who are more committed to the project that the Red Devils are trying to build.
