Manchester United will reportedly have to sell midfielder Paul Pogba midway through the season if they wish to sign new players in January.

Manchester United will reportedly have to sell midfielder Paul Pogba midway through the season if they wish to sign new players in January.

The 28-year-old, who has been linked with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain, has less than 12 months remaining on his contract at Old Trafford and he is believed to be considering his options.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side enjoyed a successful transfer window over the summer, spending around £135m on Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, amidst a poor run of form across all competitions, the Norwegian head coach is tempted to delve back into the transfer market, with a central midfielder high on his list of targets.

According to The Mirror, United are only prepared to splash more cash on new additions if they were to sell a senior member of their first-team squad, with Pogba the most likely to move on amid rife speculation about his future.

The Red Devils are at risk of losing the Frenchman for free next summer, unless they either tie him down to a new contract or agree to sell him in January.

After failing to tempt West Ham United to sell Declan Rice, United have recently switched their attention to Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips and are prepared to make an approach for him in one of the upcoming transfer windows.
