Man Utd seek early sale for Pogba

Manchester United wish to sell Paul Pogba before the Euros this summer.

The Mirror says United want to sell Pogba before the Euro 2020 finals in order to fund a summer transfer spree.

Pogba's disappointing spell at United looks set to end this summer, with Real Madrid and Juventus likely to battle it out for the France midfielder's signature.

The 26-year-old's agent Mino Raiola this week said Pogba's future would be sorted after this summer's European Championship finals.

However, United want him to find a new club before that, in order to avoid a protracted transfer saga becoming a distraction throughout the close season.

They also want the sale to be completed early to give them plenty of time to land their own targets, with Jadon Sancho, James Maddison, Jack Grealish and Eric Dier all on United's shopping list this summer.
