Paul Pogba is willing to go on strike to force an exit from Manchester United this summer, according to reports in the Spanish media.

Spanish outlet ABC, as quoted by The Sun, is reporting that Pogba is “fed up” with life at Old Trafford and is seeking a move away from the Premier League club before the new season.

It is claimed in the same story that Pogba is planning to hand in a transfer request, but if that fails, he will go on strike to force a move away from the Premier League outfit.

According to the same story, Pogba is planning not to report for pre-season training as he looks to try and force through a transfer to Real Madrid.

Pogba is said to be preparing to fly to the USA for a summer holiday and leave his agent to try and orchestrate a move to the Spanish club.

The 26-year-old has largely failed to live up to expectations since his club-record transfer back to the club from Juventus in the summer of 2016.

Real Madrid have already signed one Premier League star this summer after having tied up a deal to bring Eden Hazard to the Bernabeu.
