Man Utd chief Ed Woodward sets price tag after deciding he will sell Paul Pogba

Manchester United transfer chief Ed Woodward has slapped a £100m asking price on Paul Pogba’s head as he seeks a move away from the club.

But it could also be his last one, having underperformed in general since rejoining the Red Devils from Juventus in 2016 for a club record £89m.

Starsport understands United are planning a major recruitment drive in the upcoming summer transfer window.

And Pogba would be suspect number one when it comes to freeing up cash by selling current members of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.

It’s thought the Red Devils are keen to get the 26-year-old off their books before Euro 2020 which stats on June 12.

And executive vice chairman Woodward wants paying clubs to stump up an incredible £100m for the player whose contract expires in under 18 months.

“Italy is like home for Paul,” the super agent said.

“He would not mind going back to Juve but we will see what will happen after the Euros. Paul wants to play at the best level.
