According to a report in France, Manchester United has set a £50 million asking price for Paul Pogba in the current transfer period.

Given the uncertainty surrounding Pogba’s future, French media outlet L’Equipe, as quoted by The Daily Mirror, reports that the Red Devils are willing to sell the France international at the appropriate price this summer.

The Red Devils need about half of what they spent for Pogba in 2016, when they re-signed the World Cup winner in an £89 million deal, according to the same report.

Pogba’s current contract at Manchester United has one year left on it, raising doubts about his long-term future with the 20-time English champions.

Manchester United is seeking to achieve a £50 million transfer fee for Pogba this summer in order to get a return on their youth graduate, according to the source.

According to the Daily Mirror, Paris Saint-Germain is interested in Pogba and would be willing to spend £50 million on the central midfielder this summer.

Talks between Manchester United and Pogba for a new contract have started during the current transfer period, but are not yet “advanced.”

Since his return to Old Trafford, the Frenchman has only won the Europa League and the League Cup.
