According to the Daily Mail, Pogba told the club back in 2019 he’d be interested in signing a new deal.

At that period in time, a number of top clubs including Real Madrid were keeping an eye on the World Cup winner – but he chose to ignore the interest in favour of a stay at Old Trafford.

The club didn’t offer Pogba a new deal, and instead triggered a 12-month extension on his existing contract.

But now the club risk losing their £89million signing for FREE for the second time.

The report states there’s confusion as to why Pogba is being painted as the antagonist, considering the club have only made one formal offer to extend his contract.

Barcelona are one of the clubs hoping to sign Pogba as part of their big rebuild under new boss Xavi.

Real, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are also believed to be keeping an eye on Pogba’s contract situation heading into the winter window.

But Pogba’s former club Juve would be the frontrunners if they can shift Aaron Ramsey.
