Manchester United’s Paul Pogba is ready to leave the Premier League side in the summer with a transfer “in the process,” the French midfielder’s agent, Mino Raiola, told the Times newspaper.
Pogba, who moved to United from Juventus in 2016 for a then-world-record fee of £89.3 million ($111.73 million), has produced inconsistent displays despite scoring 31 goals in 142 appearances in all competitions.
“Everyone within the club from the manager to the owner knows Paul’s wishes,” Raiola told the Times.
“Everyone knows the willingness of Paul to move on. We’re in the process of that. Everyone knows what the feelings of Paul are.”
British media has linked the 26-year-old World Cup winner with a move to Real Madrid, where he would link up with coach Zinedine Zidane, or a return to former club Juventus.
Pogba had suggested last month in Tokyo that now “could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else.”
He is currently in New York this week on a promotional tour, with United’s squad set to fly out to Australia shortly for a series of preseason games that begin next week. Sources had previously told ESPN FC that United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has Pogba in his plans for the preseason tour.
Raiola did not confirm if Pogba would make the trip.
“I can’t tell you anything. I live day by day,” Raiola added.
United kick off their new league campaign against Chelsea at Old Trafford on Aug. 11.
