Man Utd board accepts Pogba must be sold; initial price set

Manchester United's board accepts Paul Pogba must be sold this summer.

With just over a year to run on his current deal and showing no signs of wishing to open talks about a new deal, United are now preparing to cash in on their France midfielder.

Corriere dello Sport says an initial price of €80m is already being touted, despite Pogba being free to commit to a pre-contract with a foreign team from January 1 ahead of joining for nothing in a year's time.

Juventus are keen, though not at United's current price, while PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is personally driving a move to bring Pogba to Paris for the new season. Al-Khelaifi met with Pogba's agent Mino Raiola in Nice last week.

For their part, United's board have no interest in allowing Pogba to run down his contract and are now prepared to sell the midfielder.
