Manchester United’s 5-0 defeat at home to Liverpool has heaped further pressure on boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

An already unforgettably bad day for the Red Devils was made even worse when Paul Pogba was shown a straight red card just 15 minutes after being introduced at half time.

The Frenchman has constantly been in the spotlight since his then world record transfer back to Old Trafford from Juventus in 2016.

Pogba’s performances have split opinion amongst fans and pundits alike, often being brilliant one week and ineffective the next.

Much of the current talk surrounding the 28-year-old is whether he will remain or leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Now, according to the Irish Independent, it’s claimed that United have decided they will not sell Pogba in January and are willing to let him leave for free in the summer.

It’s reported that a senior Old Trafford source said he “did not see why we would consider” trying to sell the midfielder midway through the campaign.

The source also added – in relation to Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola – that the Premier League giants were always aware that “some agents like free transfers and we are always open-eyed about that”.

According to the source, there could yet be a “twist” as Pogba still has the opportunity to pen fresh terms, however it looks more likely he will depart.

Real Madrid, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain have all been linked with the 2018 World Cup winner but it’s yet to be known where his future lies.
