Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, is ready to force his way out of the club after they failed to qualify for next season’s Champions League, ESPN reports.
Pogba, who joined from Juventus for a then-record €100million three years ago, is under contract at United until June 2021.
But the Red Devils retain an option for an extra year which could be triggered solely by the club.
However, with United set to feature in the Europa League next season, the 2018 World Cup winner wants a new challenge.
It is understood that his agent, Mino Raiola, is likely to begin talking to the United hierarchy, once the Premier League season is over next week.
The Old Trafford club have publicly insisted that Pogba is not for sale, but they privately value him at €160m.
Real Madrid, who are the only club Pogba is considering joining, will try to lower a potential transfer fee to around €120m.
News of his desire to leave comes two days after his brother, Florentin Pogba, told Spanish newspaper AS that “things will happen in the summer” regarding his brother.
