Manchester United are reportedly prepared to sell Paul Pogba in the summer transfer window ahead of planned talks with super agent Mino Raiola this week. Pogba’s future has been the subject of speculation for some time, with Juventus, Real Madrid and PSG having been previously linked with the World Cup winner.
Further questions were raised over Pogba’s prospects at United after manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer substituted the 28-year-old during last week’s Europa League final defeat to Villarreal
And the midfielder’s future could be resolved this week as United chiefs are due to speak with Raiola via a conference call.
Pogba is entering the final year of his contract with the Premier League giants, and Raiola wants £500,000 a week for his client to sign a new deal.
But the Red Devils are not prepared to go that high – and are prepared to sell if a compromise can’t be reached, according to The Mirror.

United don’t want to lose Pogba for nothing next summer, having paid £89million to take him back to Old Trafford from Juventus in 2016.
But it remains to be seen whether Juve, Madrid or PSG will come back in for the Frenchman, with Raiola unlikely to secure the deal he wants from any club in the current financial climate.
Ahead of last Wednesday’s Europa League final, Pogba hinted that he would like to stay at United.
The midfielder said he would like to nail down a position in Solskjaer’s first team, with his best performances having tended to come when he has been played on the left of the attack this season.

“First of all, we don’t look too far, the Europa League, maybe play in one position, stick in one position,” he told BT Sport.
“Maybe the next step is to stay and play in one position, to help my team to win the Premier League.
“That’s the next step, that’s what I’m saying. Everything is possible. If you don’t believe, then there’s no point in playing.”
Pogba started in midfield alongside Scott McTominay against Villarreal, but was taken off in extra time as the La Liga side went on to win on penalties.
