What the papers sayPaul Pogba‘s spell at Old Trafford could soon be coming to an end. According to the Daily Star club bosses would be open to a sizable offer for the 28-year-old midfielder in the upcoming transfer window, but concerns over signing a replacement means they would prefer to keep him for the rest of the season and let him leave for nothing when his contract expires next summer.
Staying with United, the Daily Express via AS, says the Red Devils are hopeful of beating Chelsea to the signing of Sevilla defender Jules Kounde. It is believed club bosses are fearful of United, who are in dire need of a defender, making a move for the 22-year-old in January – potentially interrupting the club’s LaLiga title charge.
