Paul Pogba Is Open To Joining Another Premier League Club If He Leaves Manchester United This Summer

Paul Pogba is reportedly willing to listen offers from other Premier League clubs if he leaves Manchester United this summer.

Pogba, 28, is out of contract at Old Trafford at the end of the season and his future has been the subject of intense speculation throughout the campaign.

The France international has been able to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs from the start of January, ahead of a potential free transfer this summer.

However, the midfielder reportedly wants to leave discussions over his future until the end of the season to focus on his football after recently returning from a groin injury.

According to The Telegraph, Pogba would be willing to consider proposals from other Premier League clubs if he leaves United.

While Pogba would be available on a free transfer, only a few clubs in England would be able to match his wage demands - which are expected to top £200,000 a week.

Manchester City have been touted as one potential destination for Pogba, with manager Pep Guardiola previously describing the midfielder as a “top, top player”.

Guardiola once claimed he had been offered the chance to sign the World Cup winner by his agent Mino Raiola back in 2018.

“Two months ago he offered me (Henrikh) Mkhitaryan and Pogba to play with us,” said Guardiola.

“He was interested in Mkhitaryan and Pogba to play with us. Pogba is an incredible player. A top, top player.”

Pogba has struggled to live up to his price-tag since rejoining United from Juventus for a then world record fee of £89m in 2016.

However, a number of European clubs - including Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Juventus - are reportedly interested in the midfielder and could make him a pre-contract offer before the end of the season.

Pogba could yet remain at Old Trafford but the midfielder has denied reports the club have offered him a huge £500,000-a-week contract to stop him leaving for free this summer.

In a statement to the Daily Mail, Pogba’s spokesperson said last month: "To clarify media reports, Paul has not been offered a new contract in recent months.

“Paul is fully focused on his recovery from injury with the aim of helping the team as soon as possible."
