Pogba takes decision on future with Man Utd after Messi joins PSG

Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, has rejected a new contract to stay at the club after Lionel Messi finally joins Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night.

Pogba’s future has been simplified in one sense by Messi’s move to PSG.

PSG were keen on signing Pogba this summer and had been preparing a £40million bid for the France international following lengthy discussions with his representatives.

However, the French Ligue 1 giants can no longer afford to sign Pogba this summer after signing Messi from Barcelona.

Metro UK reports that Pogba will now walk away from Man United on a free next summer.

The 28-year-old is entering the sixth and final year of his deal at Old Trafford, which he signed in 2016.

Man United are keen to keep Pogba but negotiations over a new deal have been slow and the player rejected the club’s latest offer.

While discussions will continue, Man United are now resigned to losing Pogba on a free transfer in 2022 and they see little value in cashing in during the January transfer window.

This means Pogba is likely to allow his contract to run down in a bid to join the PSG next summer on a free transfer.
