Manchester United are already planning for the future.
They have tabled a concrete offer to Bayern Munich midfielder Leon Goretzka when his current deal with Bayern Munich runs out next summer. They regard him as a potential replacement for Paul Pogba.
German international Goretzka has entered the final year of his current contract at Bayern, and talks over a new deal have stalled.
Reports in Germany suggest United have tempted him by guaranteeing him £200,000 a week If he agrees to join them in 2022.
Pogba too has only one year left on his current deal, and United now face a dilemma. Sell him now, or risk a repeat of what happened nine years ago when he walked away on a free transfer and joined Juventus.
PSG are among the clubs interested in signing him, but, because he has is into the fianl year of his deal, they can expect to recoup less than half the £89 million they paid for him in 2016, a world record at the time.
