Manchester United could eventually let go of Paul Pogba if Zinedine Zidane’s confident level should be a deciding factor as reports claim he’s upbeat about his chances of capturing the player’s signature in January.

The French tactician is a longtime admirer of his compatriot but all of his strategies to lure the player to Santiago Bernabeu have been unsuccessful against Manchester United.

The Express reported earlier today that the manager is confident Pogba will join his team in January or in the summer of next year because the player wants to work with him.

It should be recalled that Pogba didn’t deny the reports linking him to Santiago in the summer as he openly revealed his readiness to face new challenges in another environment.

Meanwhile, United are equally preparing for life without Pogba as they’re said to be targeting some world-class midfielders as his replacements.

Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen, Leicester City’s James Maddison and Rostov’s Mathias Normann are all said to have attracted Solskjaer’s attention as the manager searches for better options.

Eriksen, who is also a transfer target for Madrid president Perez, will become a free agent at the end of this campaign and United are hoping to beat the Spanish side to Dane’s services.
