Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to lead star player Paul Pogba out of the club this summer if he’s given the permission by the club.

This is according to the publication from the stables of the Daily Star which revealed that the Manchester United manager wants to sell the French World Cup winner to fund the signing of new players at the club.

Solskjaer has been told by the Manchester United hierarchy that he has just £100m to spend on players and the Norwegian tactician is looking at the possibility of a Pogba sale to raise more funds for transfers.

Manchester United have a lot of areas to strengthen in their squad ahead of the new season and it’s almost likely that £100m won’t solve those problematic positions in the Red Devils’ squad.

Paul Pogba has publicly talked about his desire for a new challenge after three years in his second spell with Real Madrid and former club Juventus in signing him this summer but the Manchester United owners are reluctant to let Pogba leave the club mainly because of his commercial appeal.

The French midfielder scored 16 goals for Manchester United last season to emerge as topscorer for the campaign.
