Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is prepared to let Paul Pogba join Real Madrid this summer in a £120million move.
The Frenchman was seen as key to Solskjaer’s rebuilding project at Old Trafford when he took over the reins last December and the Norwegian was confident he could convince Pogba to stay.
The France international is supposedly keen to move to the Bernabeu following the Red Devils’ failure to qualify for the Champions League.
United finished sixth in the Premier League table, behind Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal.
Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is determined to block any approach for the midfielder, however.
This is despite Solskjaer, being happy to let him go as he fears his own position will be on the line if he cannot rely on an unhappy player.
The Norwegian coach knows the pressure will be on during his first full season in charge and he wants players that he can rely on and that are fully focused on his project.
However, Solskjaer feels he can’t afford to carry passengers as he looks to rebuild the club and is willing to let Pogba move to the Bernabeu, report the Sun.
