Manchester United will sell French midfielder Paul Pogba in the summer.
There has been constant speculation about his future at the club, especially after his agent Mino Raiola began publicly commenting that his time in North-West England was over.
United had been hoping, at one stage, to tie him down to a new deal, but with indications that he has no intention of committing himself long-term, they have now bowed to the inevitable and accepted he will need to be sold instead.
He is under contract until 2022, but they prefer to sell him before then in order to be able to recoup at least some of the £89 million they paid Juventus for him in 2016.
He has been in fine form for the club recently, earning the penalty against Aston Villa that enabled United to draw level with Liverpool at the top of the Premier League. However, it now seems certain this will be his last season at Old Trafford.
