Manchester United have to sell some players in order for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to further strengthen his squad this summer, and one player could be key to those deals.
There is lots of excitement around the club at the signing and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team are expected to wrap up a deal for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane at some point in the near future too.
As always, there's plenty of other transfer rumours about the team as well but, according to ESPN, the Varane deal will take Solskjaer above his transfer budget.
The report claims that the manager was given a budget of £100 million for this summer and that signing Varane will take him over that mark, with the Sancho money.
That will then require United to sell, if Solskjaer wants to add more players to his squad, and Paul Pogba is considered 'key' to that strategy.
Pogba's contract expires this time next year and so far he is yet to sign a new deal, with some claims that he has turned down one offer.
Rather than lose the France international for nothing after next season, United would rather sell the former Juventus midfielder this summer.
The Premier League side have been heavily linked with moves for a right back and a deeper central midfielder, as Solskjaer considers changing to a 4-3-3 system for the upcoming campaign.
Kieran Trippier and Eduardo Camavinga are the two names that have most strongly been linked with a move to Old Trafford.
On Monday morning the club were also linked to Sevilla defender Jules Kounde, which would really strengthen Solskjaer's options in defence.
As well as Pogba, fringe players such as Jesse Lingard, Brandon Williams, Diogo Dalot, Alex Telles, Phil Jones, Andreas Pereira and Daniel James are reportedly all up for sale.
Anthony Martial is also believed to be available, with Tottenham Hotspur said to be interested, but the fee and wages could put clubs off.
