Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping to sell Paul Pogba this summer to raise an extra £140m for the Manchester United manager to spend on new signings, according to a report in England.

The Daily Star is reporting that Solskjaer is prepared to sacrifice Pogba in the current transfer window to bolster his transfer kitty as the Manchester United manager looks to start his rebuilding job.

The same article states that both Juventus and Real Madrid are interested in the World Cup winner but Pogba would prefer a return to Juventus, where he spent four seasons between 2012 and 2016.

According to the same story, Solskjaer is eager to offload Pogba to improve upon his current transfer budget of £100m ahead of the new Premier League season.

The Daily Star go on to add that the 20-time English champions could raise as much as £140m from Pogba’s prospective sale to Juventus or Real Madrid this summer.

The World Cup winner has been disappointing since his move back to Manchester United in a club record £89m deal from Serie A giants Juventus in the 2016 summer transfer window.

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table to miss out on a spot in the Champions League for the 2019-20 campaign.
