Man Utd convinced Pogba now 'effectively gone'

Manchester United expect Paul Pogba to depart this summer.

The France international has fewer than three months left on his £290,000-per-week contract at Old Trafford and Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus are among the clubs keen on him.

The Manchester Evening News says they have been told Pogba is "effectively gone" at United, and that the club has being preparing for his departure for most of the season.

The report adds those plans have included a look towards the summer transfer window, when they will look to sign at least one new midfielder.

The same outlet claims PSG have made a bid for Pogba, the terms of which are believed to be lower than the final package United put together in a seemingly futile attempt to convince the midfielder to stay.

The report claims, however, that Pogba prefers a return to Juventus - who he left for £89million in 2016 for United - and that Real Madrid's interest has subsided significantly since fellow Frenchman Zinedine Zidane left last year.
