According to ESPN's Mark Ogden, the club has recognized that the French midfielder will not sign a new contract before his current one expires. Pogba, who has so far refused to sign a new contract with United, is set to become a free agent at the end of June 2022.
When he returned to the club in 2016, he cost a then-record £89.1 million transfer price, having previously left Manchester for Juventus in 2012.
Despite that expense, Manchester United's hierarchy appears unconcerned with the possibility of the 28-year-old leaving on a free transfer, and the club has no plans to make him available in the January transfer window, when the club might potentially recuperate some of the huge transfer fee. The Glazer family, United's owners, believe that having Pogba available for the second half of the season is more advantageous to the club than a potential cash injection, according to Ogden.
