Manchester United ready to sell Pogba in January – club ready to pounce

Juventus are keen to snap him Paul Pogba after it was revealed Manchester United want to sell him in January.

The Italian giants are ready to pounce after the French midfielder was left on the bench for the key match against Liverpool.

Tuttosport say the Old Lady are now ready to pair him up with Cristiano Ronaldo in a dream partnership.

United’s record signing has fallen out with boss Mourinho and become a divisive figure in the dressing room.

Mirror Football revealed over the weekend that club chiefs are now ready to sell him for a second time, less than three years after making the 25-year-old the most expensive player in the world.

Boss Mourinho has run out of patience with the midfielder.

The World Cup winner has been a substitute for three of the last four matches – including the 3-1 loss at Liverpool.

And the Italian sources claim Juventus are ready to accelerate their move for the 25-year-old as his relationship with Mourinho continues to deteriorate.

And this will seemingly please United.

It is understood that United are now planning to cash in on Pogba next month regardless of whether Mourinho continues as manager.

The feeling is that it is best to part ways now – to help Mourinho turn the season around and ensure that any prospective new manager does not inherit the problem next summer.

United will listen to offers when the transfer window opens in the New Year.
