Manchester United have resigned to the fact that star player Paul Pogba could leave the club this summer despite the reluctance to let him walk out of the Old Trafford door.
Paul Pogba has been at Manchester United for four years since his then world-record move of £89m.
The Frenchman joined the Red Devils for the second time after a four-year stint at Italian champions Juventus.
He had left Manchester United for the Italians as a teenager.
Pogba has one year left on his current deal at Old Trafford with the option of another year and the general consensus is that the player will leave the club this summer for a new challenge.
Former club Juventus and Real Madrid are some of the options at his disposal.
He has hardly played for Manchester United this season and that’s down to a troublesome ankle problem sustained during the first month of this campaign.

Pogba underwent surgery on that troublesome ankle earlier this year and he’s gradually closing in on a return.
The French international has played in just seven league games and eight games in total this season.
With his future in serious doubt, Manchester United officials have lined up a replacement for him in Aston Villa skipper Jack Grealish who has been one of the best playmakers in the Premier League this season.
This is according to the Manchester Evening News (MEN).
It was also revealed that the player has a £45m release clause in his contract at Aston Villa.
Jack Grealish has been in very good form for Aston Villa this season and he’s in line to make the England squad for next month’s friendly games.
He has scored seven goals plus six assists in the Premier League. Jack Grealish has been involved in 38% of all the Aston Villa goals in the league this season.
